Description

Lithograph by G Scharf after P S, showing a street scene where women are singing and playing the harp; another woman dances with two men. On the right more men are gathered round a table, posibly gambling. In the foreground is a throwing game, while drinks are served at a table behind. A priest tolls the bell in the bell tower, probably disapproving of the rowdy activities - two riders are having a fight in the background. Illustration from 'Travels into Chile, over the Andes, in the years 1820 and 1821' by Peter Schmidtmeyer, published in London in 1824.
