Railways, Commerce, Charlatanry
Shows a scene outside a dingy hovel. A shady figure dressed as a gentleman speaks to an elderly lady standing in a doorway, and introduces a man standing nearby as 'the young Gent. as takes my business', and points out that he is himself 'agoin' into the Railway-Director Line myself'.
