One-Tree-Hill, Greenwich Park (caricature)

A commentary on the traditional, popular pastime of 'tumbling' on the hills of Greenwich Park, in this case One-Tree Hill on the east side rather than below the Observatory. Rolling down the hill was considered great sport for young men and their female companions, if the latter could be persuaded to do it. In an age when proper female dress exposed little but the feet, it was also a spectator sport for voyeurs of all ages, but hazardous for 'players' as well as being considered delightfully (or reprehensibly) improper. Limbs were often broken and people sometimes killed.
