Great shot of the print shop and I like your story with it. Maybe it is about time we all go to the Mad House and save Alan, instead of the King....
Chris: We should kidnap him to save him from his fate Astrid

Oh very good. I'm sure that this was a secne from our map presses when we were in Mad House I (we no longer print our maps now; our John Bull printing presses were sold off to the firm that now prints them). We still retain a similar device and it is used to "encourage" HM slaves to work harder. I've given indication that I'm giving it all up in May next year.
Chris: I am so pleased the Ordinance Survey has nothing any more to do with maps
Poor fellows,,,,,,....
Good photo of this interesting print, Chris smile
Chris: Thank you Martin

An excellent picture of Photoshop CS1 in Beta format, in action. Others would put a shoulder to the task, but our Bill uses the foot instead.
Chris: He has always had a style of his own Louis..
I'm afraid you have completely misinterpreted the image, Bill. This is a little known event, formerly applied in the Bootmakers' Guild of the City of London. Once a Bootmaker had achieved the position of Master Bootmaker - which took an enormous length of time, he was required by the Guild to dispose of one of his legs, thereby making available a larger supply of boots fitting a left (or right) leg. Here we see the Master Bootmaker (Silas Matchpenny) about to remove his left leg just below the knee - his apprenticdes (names not recorded) turn away from the sight, partly in deference to their Master but also aware that they too, if they persist is this somewhat dangerous trade will come to this in due course. The apprentice on the left is preparing a poultice to place on the remaining part of the limb, while the one on right is recording the event for insertion in the Annals of the BootMakers' Guild. For further information see Higginbottom and Frostman, Curious practices associate with the guilds of the City of Londfon. 1879.
Chris: Good grief - industrial practices ever more frightful than mechanised twiddling!
