"A young lady to the left with a fan in her left is grabbed by a Shrone Sweeper on her chin jumping up next to her right. All he wears is a shirt, a ladder and a Jacobin hat. The artist says in handwriting:'A chimney sweep boy allows himself to caress a girl. It cannot prevent it, and are the consequences of unrestrained freedom and equality" (Engelmann 1857, p. 388).
