Description:
George, No. 8942
The stout 'cit' of No. 8941, smoking, stands outside a door of his house, pointing out to his fashionable visitor the latrine: a pseudo-gothic building with three pinnacles and a battlement at the end of a garden path which is defined by pebbles and flanked by flower-pots. See No. 8940 & c.

(from George, vol. VII)
