Recycled Bellman Draft

Recycled Bellman Draft
In an early draft to the image The Crew on Deck, the Bellman had a different face than the one which the Bellman had in the final illustration. Henry Holiday moved that round faced character to the illustration The Barrister's Dream and then turned the Bellman into a Darwin look-alike.

The initial "round" face of the Bellman could have been combined with a character from an etching by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder. Henry Holiday may have used that crowded etching for "harvesting" characters and shapes.
