Footnotes

  • Abbey notes that Atkinson's plates "show the spontaneity and spirit possible when the artist is his own engraver... the colouring is skilfully done, in soft washes". Many of the views depict leisure activities and include the racecourse, swings, boxing, wrestling, toboganning on ice hills, skittles, dancing, the fairground and public festivals. The plates are watermarked "J.W. Whatman, 1823".
