Two contrasting scenes. On the left ("At home i.e England), a ragged young woman with a child behind her is shivering in a snowy street near a pub advertising gin, while a top-hatted man is reaching out an admonishing hand. On the right ('Abroad' i.e. somewhere in the colonies) is a family that has emigrated to one of the colonies, an interior scene with two well-fed children and the parents at a table, with hams and other food hanging above and the mother holding a laughing baby above her head, while the smiling father watches as he peels a potato. Hens and part of a garden can be glimpsed through an open door to the left
