Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of two destitute children, a boy and his little sister, begging for bread from the owner of a baker’s shop. The boy, who has politely taken his cap off, looks appealingly at the kindly-looking woman. The street appears to be in a poor part of a city: the baker’s shop is shabby, and next door a dealer in second-hand clothes is hanging out his wares.
