Description

Etching by George Sala taken from the 'Great Exhibition 'Wot is to Be', a satirical look at the forthcoming Great Exhibition of 1851. An image of two young ladies with an older female chaperone is captioned 'numerous lady birds will be exhibited guarded by a dragon fly'. Behind them two eager, young men can be seen chasing the ladies- 'followed by spiders'.
