The Pawnbroker's Shop


George Cruikshank’s illustration shows the stalls where one could enter privately and avoid notice by neighbors. Years later this situation would be employed by Dickens, when the struggling young Martin Chuzzlewit uses one of these private stalls but is recognized.

George Cruikshank. Illustration to Charles Dickens’s Sketches by Boz, Second Series. London: John Macrone, 1835-36.
