Details: This poster is of Beer Street, by William Hogarth. Beer Street and Gin Lane are two prints issued in 1751 by English artist William Hogarth in support of what would become the Gin Act. Designed to be viewed alongside each other, they depict the evils of the consumption of gin as a contrast to the merits of drinking beer. On the simplest level, the inhabitants of Beer Street as happy and healthy, nourished by the native English ale.

William Hogarth (10 November, 1697 - 26 October, 1764) was a major English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art. His work ranged from excellent realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called modern moral subjects . Much of his work, though at times vicious, poked fun at contemporary politics and customs. Illustrations in such style are often referred to as Hogarthian .

This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
