Description
 
Woodcut of a well dressed yet sizable woman obviously wearing crinoline beneath her dress. Yet another parody on the oft maligned crinoline, but worse yet discrimination as it relates to size.. The chorus reads What dresses now the ladies have, It really is surprising, Who is your Cooper, Poll? It must be agonizing,-- That you can't find a Crinoline; Kick up a jolly row there, Knock the hoops from off the washing tubs To swing below your trousers Printed in two columns.  Marked 767 at lower right. T.M. Gresley, June 1859 penned upper left. Printed on tissue. Reverse is blank. Measures 9 3/4" x 7 1/2". .
