Chimney Sweepers on May Day Featured Print

Chimney Sweepers on May Day

May Day celebrations of the chimney sweeps. The text with the picture gives some interesting information about Jack in the Green and the Lord and Lady: "their garland is a large cone of holly and ivy framed upon hoops, which gradually diminishes in size to an apex, whereon is sometimes a floral crown, knots of ribbons, or bunches of flowers; its sides are decorated in like manner; and within it is a man who walks wholly unseen, and hence the garland has the semblance of a moving hillock of evergreens...their lord and lady are magnificent indeed; the lord is always the tallest of the party...he wears a huge cocked hat, fringed with yellow or red feathers, or laced with gold paper...his waistcoat is embroidered...his shoes are dancing pumps with large tawdry buckles; his hair is powdered...his lady is sometimes a strapping girl, though usually a boy in female attire." Date: 1826
