Description

Source: Ackermann’s Repository of Arts was an illustrated British periodical published from 1809-1829.  Although commonly called Ackermann’s Repository, or simply Ackerman’s, the formal title of the journal was the “Repository of arts, literature, commerce, manufactures, fashions, and politics.” This image was part of a monthly publication issued by Ackermann and often ‘bound’ afterwards into the form of a book. Ackermann’s images reflected the social mores of  Regency Georgian London illustrating the lives of both rich and poor.
