A cat sits on a woman's shoulder. "J. Doe" flies with wings attached to his arms. Two men stand by hot air balloons; one says "I say Sam dont you want another feed of Coal afore you start?" and the other says "Now Six-going Up Sir." The nearest balloon is labeled "New Patent Balloon Coach, Starts every hour to Air Shire, No. 341 W. 169 Rex." The next balloon says "The Steam [Arm], The Cork Leg," and the following one reads "Cras[h]." A rising balloon is labeled "To Gretn[a] Green." Steam engines pass over a tunnel labeled "Antipodean Tunnel" to the "Half Moon Inn." An "Eagle" airship flies people to the "Sun Tavern: NB Hot Joints Always Ready."
