About this work
The cobbler sits outside his shop, left; above his door is a signboard inscribed "Men and womens soles translated, their understandings mended. Uprights rectified, and quarters restiched, by J Cook, Knt. of St Crispin, and Secular Twister to the Parish of Sheeperton". Two sailors listen to his maunderings, centre. On the right is the house of the parson with clay walls and a thatched roof (with lettering on signboard "Abraham Amen Parish Clerk and Sexton") and the house of the surgeon-apothecary, which is timbered and has a tiled roof, and a signboard inscribed "John Heaven Apothecary and undertaker", with two coats of arms and a mortar and a pestle)
