George Hunt after Michael Egerton

A Trip up Loch Lomond in Michael Egerton, Airy Nothings; or Scraps, and Naughts, and Odd-cum-shorts: in a Circumbendicus Hop, Step, and Jump, by Olio Rigmaroll

Michael Egerton’s publication takes its reader on a fictitious journey from London to Scotland, the Lake District, Wales and Ireland. It includes an entertaining collection of street scenes in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin as well as depictions of travellers. This description of men and women piled up on a vessel powered by steam rather than sail hints at the rise of mass transportation. It also pokes gentle fun at the manufactured tourist experience that awaited travellers at Loch Lomond, complete with a serenading piper.
