Characters from the anti-Jewish play "Our Social Intercourse" by Karl Sessa. Despite protests, the play was staged in 1819. The play makes fun of "Jewish" mannerisms, particularly among Jews in new positions and occupations. The panels show the transition between old and new: rich and poor, merchants and peddlers, students and artists.

"Nürnberger Bilderbogen," 1825.
