"Extravagantly dressed pedestrians promenade beside (?) the Serpentine. Almost all are arm-in-arm, an exception being an ugly and complacent woman whose face is covered by a long transparent lace veil. The women walk leaning back, as in BM Satires 14438; they point their toes as if at a dancing class, drawing up their skirts, but these are less long. A fashion for stripes for women's dresses and for trousers is apparent, and for patterned materials with scalloped flounces, furbelows, ribbons, and over-trimmed hats. Curled hair frames the face and rests on the shoulders. Waists are still wasp-like for both sexes. Men wear checked neck-cloths with high collars. Much play is made with eye-glasses and canes. Hessian and top-boots are corrugated, spurs are oddly absent. The women wear very flat slippers, tied at the ankle. Beyond the water are trees."--British Museum online catalogue
