Title:
Polish Jews driving to market : a sketch on the Polish Russian frontier
Date:
1880
Description:
Black-and-white offset print reproduction of Polish Jews in Russia. The associated article reads : "A sketch by our artist in Russia, or rather on the borders of Russian Poland, shows a two-horse cart of rustic apperance, closely packed with eager merchants of country wares and commodities for the use of the peasantry, one and all belonging to the Hebrew race, who carry on most of the inland trade in those parts of the Czar's dominions. They are travelling to the next market-town, where they will buy and sell to a considerable profit, as the Jews never fail to do in Russia, if in any country in the world." Published in the March 27, 1880, edition of The Illustrated London News.
