Passages illustrated:

Poets and thieves arrived in taxis; bankers and derelicts carrying umbrellas; hacks and whores in disguises; peasants and workers on foot and by cart; pensioners in wheelchairs and newborns in prams; flower-sellers and critics clutching flora and notepads; family men with one expression each and new-fangled perverts; eye-loose priests of all persuasions; women of all complexions; delinquents, dentists, lepers and judges.
