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.

DER AUSRUF IN HAMBURG

‘Der Ausruf in Hamburg’ was a collection of around 120 illustrations first compiled in 1808 by Christoffer von Suhr. This selection of 36 plates was published in Germany in 1938 and, by what seems to be the same publisher, again in 1963. I haven’t yet seen the 1808 plates in their entirety.
