A woman drops her teacup upon learning what creatures inhabit her drinking water. The text along the top margin reads "Microcosm. Dedicated to the London Water Companies 1 - Brought forth all monstrous, all prodigious things, 2 - Hydras and gordons, and chimeras dire. Vide Milton." Sanitation was a major problem in Victorian London, which saw two major cholera outbreaks before the construction of Joseph Bazalgette's innovative sewage system in the 1860's.

All prints and posters are made to order on 13 by 19 professional heavyweight matte photo paper. All images are printed exactly as shown.
