Buckie wife, Canongate
A buckie wife sits on the Canongate, Edinburgh with two young children. She is wearing a headscarf and has baskets laid out in front of her displaying her wares. A barefooted boy and a younger child look on. Across the street are the shops including Taylor's Boot Warehouse, J. Campbell butchers and Macdonald's Commercial Hotel. In front of the shops stand a horse and carriage and another street vendor with a cart.
