Street cries of the world

Street cries were once a popular subject of songs and literature in Britain, continental Europe and elsewhere. Each month from 2018 onwards I'll be scanning and transcribing publications to build this collection.

THE CRIES OF YORK

Cries of York cover

Fine Yacombe sand

Cries of York frontispiece

Italian basket seller

Sweep your chimney

Mend old pans or kettles

Come buy my nice muffins

Buy my clocks and weather-glasses

Buy shirt hand buttons

Come buy my roasting spits

Rabbits rabbits

Buy my fine writing ink

The city bell-man

Buy my fine sharp needles

Young lambs to sell
