Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a stonebreaker, a sad-looking old man, sitting with his long-handled hammer beside a heap of stones.

” … poor old man,/With misty eye, and fleshless bone,/Dripping and shivering there alone,/Wrapped in a rag on that cold, cold stone;/Feeble and toothless, haggard and wan,/My heart aches for thee, poor old Dan.’
