The Greenwich Pensioner
A Greenwich Pensioner, probably a Hospital Boatswain from his laced cuff, seated in a carved chair by a table, filling his 'chalk' (clay pipe) from a rectangular tobacco box. On the table are a tankard of ale, a newspaper and his glasses, implying a tavern setting. The original print bears title, as above, below the image and a dedicatory inscription by the publisher (Jenkins) to Admiral Sir Richard Keats, Governor of Greenwich Hospital at the time it was engraved, set round his arms.
