Fanny By-Gaslight the stiltwalking Victorian flower seller pedals her lovely blooms, trailing her big bustle, 'Betty' behind her.

She is the picture of elegance until...”Cor blimey Guvnor..!” the bustle has a mind of its own and suddenly detaches itself from Fanny and rushes off to perform a jig. This is the moment when everybody watching jumps with surprise and then laughter at the flower seller’s disapproval as her foundation garments are revealed.

This is a beautiful, engaging, and slightly surreal, portrayal of a traditional Victorian character.
