Street Scene by Georg Emmanuel Ortiz. The British Museum.
They don’t have many details about this print at the British Museum, but my guess is early 1820-1825, based on their clothing. Ortiz was living in Leipzig in the 1820s, so I think that this is in Germany. There are some wild pieces of headwear in this image, including the strange grey headdress on the girl in the short-sleeved spencer and the headdress of the woman directly behind her. Also, on the far left is a soldier wearing a very unusual helmet! I know very little about early 19th century German uniforms, so if anyone out there has more information about him, I sure would appreciate it!
