Cartoons by Frank Reynolds from Punch magazine

The Village Stance
The Squire's son stands in the orthodox way.The Butcher makes the most of his height.His son makes the least of his. The Gardener has a beard,so stands like WG. The Curate likes them on the off.The Blacksmith likes them on the leg.Not so the Grocer.Young Jarge stands anyhow.Gaffer Giles can hardly stand at all.The Boy stands as well as he can.And the Chemist stands like nothing on earth.
