Going to London Through Epping Forest

Description (from https://research.britishmuseum.org)

An ugly middle-aged woman, wearing a calash hood (cf. BMSat 5434) over a cap, picks up her petticoats to step over or through a bush shaped like a forest tree, but spotted with red fruit. She grins and clutches in her right hand a paper inscribed 'Wonderful Aeronauts'. She is walking towards a garden latrine (left). Two concentric circles of greenery surround the bush. There is a landscape background.
