In this rare view of the interior of an English inn or tavern, a soldier converses with three patrons about a paper inscribed “The Kings Speech.” A barmaid is seen speaking with a man holding a coffeepot and shaving bowl. Behind her are punch bowls, some of them stored upside down for cleanliness, and decanters or bottles initialed to reflect their contents: sherry, brandy, and rum. A small cask of gin sits on the counter. The leafy decorations in the window and hanging from the center of the room probably identify the season as Yuletide.
