A view of the scene round the platform on 16 Aug. A woman holds a banner inscribed 'Manchester Female Reform' on which a female figure tramples on 'Coruption'. The other three banners on the platform are: U'niversal Suffrage'; 'Liberty or Death' [see No. 13279]; 'Universal Civil and Religious Liberty'. In the foreground a man with a banner on which is a female figure holding a sword is pursued by one of the yeomanry. All the banners are topped by a cap of Liberty. Many of the men on the ground and on the platform wear (green) leaves in their hats. 1819 Etching and aquatint
