Description

Beer Street, from Beer Street and Gin Lane

The accompanying poem, not printed in this reissue, reads:

Beer, happy Produce of our Isle
Can sinewy Strength impart,
And wearied with Fatigue and Toil
Can cheer each manly Heart.


Labour and Art upheld by Thee
Successfully advance,
We quaff Thy balmy Juice with Glee
And Water leave to France.


Genius of Health, thy grateful Taste
Rivals the Cup of Jove,
And warms each English generous Breast
With Liberty and Love!
Date Originally 1751 this is a print from an engraving probably between 1806-09 copied by Samuel Davenport from Hogarth's originals
