Back view of man urinating
This familiar vignette of ordinary life in an age entirely lacking 'public conveniences' is an example of Bray's acute eye as a social observer. It may have been done in London in late September or very early October 1774 while on his way to Portsmouth , or there, and is one of 73 drawings by Bray (plus one signed 'NF 1782') preserved in a 19th-century album that was purchased for the Museum by the Macpherson Fund of the Society for Nautical Research in April 1991. They have now been separately remounted. Bray (1750-1823), was second lieutenant of the 44-gun 'Pallas' under Captain the Hon. William Cornwallis (1744-1819) - later a well-known admiral - on two voyages (1774-77) to report on British interests in West Africa, including the slave trade.
