The pub has long been seen as a prime location of social interaction in Britain. The pub here is shown empty, but is still portrayed as a welcoming home from home. Adorned with knick-knacks and wood panelling, this is an example of a detailed illustration, where everything from the tankard to the plant pot on the table are helping set the scene and create an atmosphere. The artist has set a welcoming scene, just waiting for someone to walk in.
