'The Months of the Year - September'
1870
Wood engraving by R & L Taylor
Museum no. E.7061-1888

This print is from a series showing the months of the year. Although the purpose of the series is unknown, it was probably intended for publication in a magazine or annual. The prints employ popular imagery and symbolism to create an easily recognisable character for each month.  In this engraving the imagery underlines the link between women and nature that was so popular in the 19th century.
