John Gilpin attaches wine bottles to his belt, 1878, (c1918). Creator: Randolph Caldecott

John Gilpin attaches wine bottles to his belt before setting out on his journey, 1878, (c1918). Gilpin takes the wine, in stone bottles, which his wife left behind. John Gilpin was the subject of a comic ballad of 1782 by William Cowper entitled "The Diverting History of John Gilpin". The ballad, based on real-life character, describes how, on a journey to Edmonton (north in London), Gilpin, a draper, became separated from his wife and children after losing control of his horse, and ended up in the town of Ware, ten miles away from his intended destination. From "The Diverting History of John Gilpin", by William Cowper. [Frederick Warne and Co., London & New York, c1918]
