  • St. John’s Coffee-house, Shire Lane, London

    It is 4:00 a.m. in a clubroom said to be St. John’s Coffee-house, Shire Lane, London. The candles are burning out on a night consigned to drinking, and the revelers betray every state of drunkenness from rowdiness to stupefaction. In spite of William Hogarth’s admonition in his caption — “Think not to find one meant resemblance there, we lash the Vices but the Persons spare” — people took delight in associating individuals in the print with various reprobates in London society.
