From the Original Picture by John Collett in the possession of Carington Bowles. Printed for & Sold by Carington Bowles, at his Map & Print Warehouse, No. 69 in St. Pauls Church Yard, London. Publish'd as the Act directs (erased)
Four young ladies in pleated gowns and hats bowl outside a country inn, one just releasing the ball at a set of ninepins. At the other end of the alley, a little girl is ready to set up more pins. Two young ladies stand together on the left beyond the bowler, one offering the other a bowl of snacks. In the center background, another lady leans over a table with wine bottle and glass and blows the foam off a large cannister of beer she holds in her hands. A spaniel watches the bowling from beneath the table. On a large tree in the background, a tally board, halved by a chalk line, shows the marks of two teams. A ball, a tipped pin, and a clay pipe with broken stem lie in the foreground. Surviving impressions includes the date "2 Feb 1779."
