Content: Printed on border: "There were also men called tankard-bearers, who carried huge tankards, holding two or three gallons, which they filled at the conduit, and then hawked the water along the street. Our picture shows one of these men returning with his empty tankard for a new supply. He has protected his chest and back from the dripping of his tankard, which possibly was not always water-tight. Tankards of smaller size were used for other liquids beside water, and so Ben Jonson asks, 'Hath his tankard touched your brain?' "
