BEWARE OF THE PIRATES !
Pirates with linguistic aspirations.
Sometimes view pirates feel an unexpected urge for creativity. Then they give their own interpretation of a view. We give you some examples of this true great originality.
This is an original view. One of a series about a girl that plays with a lamb.
At last they both fall asleep. The title is “the pet of the common”.
This is the same but pirated view. Now the lamb apparently has passed away.
The view is titled “The Dead Lamb”. But luckily it’s still one of a “comic” series!
“The Children in the Wood”
This pirated view seemingly shows two children peacefully resting in the wood
But the original gives a poem on the backside that tells the true story of
THE CHILDREN OF THE WOOD
No burial these pretty ones
From anyone receives,
Till Robin Red-Breast painfully
Did cover them with leaves.
“Home – Thy Joys are passing lovely”
This poetical title comes from the Kilburn Brothers on one of their early views.
This pirate apparently hates all that philosophical humbug. What you see is what you
get. So this view was renamed: “The Cottage Door”.
This early pirate (!) view has the following title on the backside:
“Present to an old Bachelor”. We must admit we really like this kind of humor.
But this somewhat later pirate was a (little) bit more virtuous.
So the view was named: “A New Knocker to the Monastery Door”
