 A lady walking along a high orchard wall has her enormous headdress, trimmed with lace and ribbons, pulled from her head by a monkey perched atop the wall. She clasps her hand to her bare head, a look of surprise on her face. A man perched on a ladder picking apples in the orchard looks over the wall in amusement at the scene. A butcher’s boy with a large tray stands in the street equally amused by the scene.
