An Etchmaster etching on a copper-plate surface so as to resemble an antique copper etching plate with a reproduction (cropped) of the scene from William Hogarth's 1738 print "Morning," the first in his "Four Times of the Day" series. In the center, a middle-aged woman walks from the left towards St. Paul's church; the clock on the tower showing 6:55. She is followed by a servant boy carrying her prayer book under his arm as he tries to warm his hands in his pocket and jacket. St. Paul's is partially hidden behind a tavern identified by a sign reading "Tom King's Coffee House." In front of the tavern is a fire where two couples embrace as two women warm themselves, the one reaching out to beg of the well-dressed woman. To the left, in the middle distance, a small crowd mulls around the gate.
