Off to the Pub, 1911 by Walter Richard Sickert (1860-1942)

1 thought on “Off to the Pub — Walter Richard Sickert”

  1. I remember an illustration in the “Fliegende Blatter” in the early sixties (1860s) in which is depicted a little girl guiding her blind grandmother. Finding the road rather even, and therefore tedious, the child from time to time feigned an obstacle, a brick or a stone, and said, “Granny, jump,” which the old lady obediently did. When someone remonstrated with the child, she answered, “My grandmother is mine; I may do what I choose with her.”
    From “The Life and Opinions of Walter Sickert”.
