The Cockney Alphabet - A for 'Orses (Hay for Horses)

The Cockney Alphabet - A for 'Orses (Hay for Horses)
 
A little taster of my new limited edition screen print, The Cockney Alphabet.
A for 'Orses, B for Mutton, &c., &c.. (you get the picture)

Limited Edition screen print, 50 cm by 70 cm (B2), signed and numbered by the artist.


This fellow is based upon a real character I've seen around Brick Lanes a few times, a real gypsy horse-whisperer, his face brown as a berry and lined like a school-book, with huge side-boards. He wears his trowsers high, with turn-ups the size of Spain..

Thank you Paul for allowing us to use your wonderful Cockney Alphabet images on twitter. EFL students love cockney rhyming slang. Gaynor, The Language List.
