Trivia

Or, The Art Of Walking The Streets Of London




This joyful poetic satire describes wig thieves, chamberpots, prostitutes and other hazards to be avoided on the teeming streets of eighteenth-century London.

O! may thy Virtue guard thee through the Roads
Of Drury's mazy Courts, and dark Abodes,
The Harlots guileful Paths, who nightly stand,
Where Katherine-street descends into the Strand.
