"Queen Caroline, stout and flamboyant, stands on the balcony over the porch of Wood's house in South Audley Street, looking down complacently with folded arms at the cheering crowd which fills the street. Alderman Wood stands cringingly behind her. A boy sits on a lamp-bracket, looking up, saying, "I've got a good place Jack I can see the whole of her." A sailor climbs one pillar of the porch, a little chimney-sweep swarms up the other. A man on horseback says: "Come down you Smutty." Another man shouts: "Clap my Boy! Clap her!!" A boy with newspapers inscribed 'Times', bawls: "Never Vas sich Times as these" [a catch-phrase]; cf. British Museum Satires No. 13729. The street is densely packed; spectators wave from the opposite windows and balcony. In the distance is a church, on the roof of which are spectators; one looks through a telescope, another asks "Can you see it." On the extreme right a parson on horseback is assailed with mud and brickbats."--British Museum online catalogue
