    Shows a man pretending to read a thermometer hanging in a shop doorway. A woman standing near him, unable to see what he is observing, takes the man's exclamation, 'Quite Thirty, by Jove!', to refer to her age. She replies, 'I'm nothing of the kind, Sir', and scorns his pretending not to see her.
