Thumbnail Sketches of Market People, Southern Spain

Description (Brief)
Stephen Ferris remarked in an 1881 letter from southern Spain, “when arrived at Gib[ralter] we [Ferris and his son Gerome] were delighted with the Tangiers market people Arab merchants. . . .” Perhaps these rapidly caught, varied individuals in ink, pencil and watercolor on this signed sheet are from the streets of Gibraltar.
