The Bowles family ran a print shop at 69 Saint Paul's ChurchYard that served neighborhood merchants and shopkeepers, an ilk quite distinct from Mrs. Humphrey's more fashionable West End crowd. Successful publishers, the Bowleses specialized in humorous mezzotints, termed "Postures," which they sold "one shilling plain, two shillings colored."
