You see my dartur vears her hair like the Queen…

A homely, heavy-set girl (left) sits on a chair while an artist in spectacles (right) sits and sketches her in profile while her coarse mother in a mop cap smiles at the artist who looks back in surprise at her comment to him. Below is a clipping with the words, “You see my dartur vears her hair like the queen”. Possibly a satire directed at the new Queen, Victoria.
