London Types celebrates the affection residents felt for their city at the end of the 19th century. The series includes many depictions of women because the publisher William Heinemann, a strong supporter of the struggle for equality, advised the artist to represent both sexes equally. The scenes document London of the 1890s with contemporary references. For example, the Sandwich Man advertises a vast painting of the Ecce Homo by the Hungarian artist Mihály Munkácsy, which was on view at the Dowdeswell Galleries in New Bond Street at the time.
