The costume of the old woman on the left, with its prominent gold braiding on the bodice, was traditional dress in the Province of North Holland. In the right background a quack has set up his stall beneath his distinctive Chinese umbrella.
The model for the cobbler reappears in Victors's 'The Swine Butcher', signed and dated 1648 (Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum) and in another picture of 1651 (York, City Art Gallery). This picture was probably painted in about 1650.
