Hogarth, Gin Lane

Hogarth, Gin Lane. A political print supporting a ministerial measure against the unlimited sale of gin (which later became the Gin Act). A scene of London life is depicted in which the pawnbrokers, gin cellar and distillery are now flourishing, and people's lives are being destroyed by their addiction to gin, with examples of infanticide, starvation, madness, decay and suicide.

The dram drinker

A scruffy dram drinker keenly slurps on a glass of gin at one of London's many gin palaces; the engraving accompanies an article highlighting the depravity of the gin palace in Victorian society: 'Poverty and misery, and a want of the proper necessaries of life, have driven, and are still driving hundreds to drink in this vast metropolis'.

Queen Victoria in Nice - French satire on her donkey cart

Queen Victoria in Nice, France - a rather (!) disrespectful late 19th century French satirical caricature. In 1882, Queen Victoria began her winter affair with the Cote dAzur, she would arrive bearing extensive food and drink supplies, a multitude of staff, Highland soldiers and Abdul Karim, her Indian attendant (highly unpopular with all bar the queen herself). The queen would ride out frequently, either in a carriage or a cart pulled by 'Jacquot', a donkey she had rescued, half-starved, from a peasant (as lampooned on this card) and which she subsequently took back and forth to England with her. (Jacquot lived out his life at Windsor, after Victorias death.). Date: circa 1890s
