Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of morris dancers performing in a village street outside an inn. Some of the dancers wear bells on their legs, and their shirt sleeves are bound with ribbon. One of the dancers wears a conical hat like a dunce’s cap. A man plays a penny whistle to accompany the dancers. A small crowd of villagers watch, and the landlady of the inn brings out a jug of ale for the dancers. This illustration was engraved from the painting ‘Worcestershire Mummers’ by Charles Cattermole (1832-1900).
