Pregnant Woman

Sadly, the woman I chose for square thirteen is unnamed, but she is pregnant, so that makes her a mother.

She was concocted by William Hogarth in 1750, carries a basket of copies of ‘God Save The King’, and is looking longingly at a grenadier on the Tottenham Court Road.

The March Of The Guards To Finchley, of which she is a detail, can be viewed at the Foundling Museum.

The square was taken from the leaflet, below.
