    Bovril is the trade name of a beef extract (something you eat). Click here Bovril - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia to see exactly how it is. I used to like it spread on bread and butter or diluted in hot water with small pasta in it.
    The child is very pretty and she's wearing 'furs' - she's wearing a fur jacket or a fur coat, I don't know. The 'shivering street arab' is an arab (a boy, girl, man or woman) who is poor and doesn't have a house where to live in (he's a tramp/beggar, he's homeless) and is shivering because it's obviously cold (the girl is wearing furs!). The little girl is giving him to eat.
    Hope that helps. Talbot and Champneys are both brand names, if that's what you're asking.
