Engraving of a mother and her wriggling child posing for a photography-mad rector, the Reverend James. While he is distracted, a man on the left with luxuriant sideboards smooches with a young woman: 'when did such whiskers plead in vain to the heart of a discerning British female.' In front of the group are the discarded toys of the child.
