'The Old Derry down Derry'

'The Old Derry down Derry', an illustration by John Vernon Lord 
in The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear, Jonathan Cape, 1984 and reissued in 2012, page 1.

(Note: this is a portrait of Edward Lear himself with the children at Knowsley Hall where the poet invented his first set of nonsense limericks that were first published in 1846.)
