Abstract:
"A thin, sharp-featured man walks in the teeth of the wind, holding on his hat, and with his left hand in his breeches pocket. His hat-brim, hair, cravat, coat, the tail of his shirt, the strings of his breeches and shoes, all fly backwards. He walks (right to left) up a rough sandy road edged by windswept bushes. A milestone is inscribed 'To Hampstead Hill'. On the horizon (right) is St. Paul's, dominating the spires of London, and backed by dense cloud."--British Museum online catalogue.
