A theatrical booth on the left collapses under the sign "The Stage of Mutiny ..."; a lantern sign reads "Ciber [sic] and Bullock's The Fall of Bajazet". There is a china shop, a rope dancer and rope-flyer, a quack doctor, a peepshow, a conjuror (Isaac Fawkes) and broadsword fighter on horseback; in the foreground a black boy plays a trumpet and a young woman a drum.
