Abstract:
The collision of several coaches results in a scene of mayhem on a city street as the coachmen brandish their whips, much to the horror of their well-dressed passengers. As a result of the collisions, two vendors and their wares are thrown on a third vendor, all tumbling onto the sidewalk in front of the corner shop "Peter Thump Gold Beater". A workman carrying bricks up a ladder is also in peril. Gold beaters in the corner shop look on while continuing their work. On the right two dancing dogs continue their performance.
