Byers' Choice The Cries of London

 

Named for their vocal means of advertising, pictures of the "Cries of London" date back as early as the 1500's. Each vendor specialized in peddling a specific product or service on the streets of town. Everything from bread to produce to coal and matches could be purchased from these boisterous characters. One particular "crier" in 19th Century London could even be hired to rid your home of rats. Vendors would often deliver their sales pitch in the form of a poem or song in order to gather more attention. The sales of each individual's goods or services depended heavily upon the quality and volume of is or her "cry." Rhymes such as Hot Cross Buns can be attributed to these colorful individuals.

"No two Byers' Choice Carolers are ever the same. Our artisans create a unique character and personality in each figure by using a variety of techniques and materials. Each crafter leaves a little bit of herself in every figure she touches. As many as ten people will work on one Caroler. Consequently, it is almost impossible to find two Carolers that are exactly alike" -Joyce Byers
