"Matrosen vor einer Spelunke". Original-Radierung von Jacob Gensler, unten links in der Platte signiert und datiert. 1842. - Seamen of various origins are shown in front of a "board and lodging house"; a sailing ship is painted in the middle of the text, as many a sailor cannot read at this date. Attitudes and clothing are interesting. These men are easy prey for brutal crimps specialised in "shanghaiing" drugged tars aboard their Whitehalls to ships lacking crew.
