The City of the Absent, from The Uncommercial Traveller, literary sketches by Charles Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870). Caption reads: 'Blinking old men who are let out of workhouses by the hour, have a tendency to sit on bits of coping stone in these churchyards… the more depressed class of beggars too, bring hither broken meats and munch.' Illustration by E.G. Dalziel (1817 - 1905)
