Notes
Content : Written on border: "1860s" Printed on border: "In the great city of London, there is an association called the Shoe-Black's Brigade. Here is a little member of that society quietly plying his trade in the street. He will make that old gentleman's boots as bright as a mirror before he finishes the task ; for Bennie, though a poor boy, is a careful and through worker. He is as useful as many a more fortunate boy." Foxing on image.

Source note: Second book of 100 pictures. (Philadelphia : American Sunday School Union, 18--).
