The pot calling the kettle black

This caricature is a rare original image showing a black Greenwich Pensioner in Greenwich Hospital uniform. Although the balustrading across the background is inauthentic, the presence of moored shipping behind suggests the scene is supposed to be the Grand Square of the hospital, while the throng of Pensioners along it well suggests the 'listless idleness and mental vacuity' that (in a phrase of the 1860s) characterized much of hospital life.
