Market Reports - English Country Squire carves the beef
Market Reports illustrated (Postcard series):
MEAT: "English beef was in fine condition."
This report on English beef (as a commodity traded on the Stock Exchange) is illustrated by a ruddy and rotund Eglish Country Squire taking great delight in the serving of probably the largest joint of beef you can imagine! Thankfully it does not appear it is all destined for his luncheon as there are other plates to be filled...!
