CRIES OF LONDON COLLECTION STORY
The Cries of London collection harks back to a rich history in 18th century England when a type of street vendor called a "crier" could be seen on the street of London selling their wares. These real life criers would have been vibrantly dressed vendors who sold all different sorts of goods on the crowded streets of London.
Living in the old days before most people could read, these street folk often spread the daily news by shouting it out loud. The name criers comes from the fact that they often shouted loudly on the streets when selling their wares, and because the streets were so busy and loud, each crier had a unique type of street cry to make themselves distinctive. Can you just imagine the racket of a bustling London market!
Here this crier is carrying a goose which she is selling with her family who are all geese vendors. She accompanies his husband, "Crier of London Selling Goose Vendor 4321E" and son " Cries of London Boy with Goose Caroler, (4323E)"
