A well-to-do couple enjoy their telescope whilst a servant trips on the family dog and falls down the stairs. A vectorization of a drawing in 'Doctor Syntax's Three Tours: in search of the picturesque, consolation, and a wife', William Combe, 1868. The drawing was entitled 'Syntax star-gazing'. The raster image was processed to remove blemishes, and contrast and colours were adjusted before vectorization.
