Cartoon, British Tars, towing the Danish Fleet into Harbour

Cartoon, British Tars, towing the Danish Fleet into Harbour; the Broadbottom Leviathan trying to swamp Billy's old Boat, & the little Corsican tottering on the Clouds of Ambition, by James Gillray. Showing outgoing coalition ministers spouting water ineffectively at a boat named the Billy Pitt (after the former Prime Minister). John Bull sits outside a pub named The Good Old Royal George and shout Rule Britannia. A small Napoleon up in the sky looks on in consternation. The three sailors are Hawkesbury, Castlereagh and Canning, who have replaced the former ministers. The cartoon is a comment on an international power struggle and an invasion plot which was foiled. Date: 1807

Town Crier in pony and trap, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex

James Smith, Town Crier of Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex, in pony and trap. Seen here passing the butcher's shop owned by J Potter, where cuts of meat are on display. James, an ex-naval man, would for one shilling cry the details of any forthcoming event all around the town. When he had finished his notices he would remove his hat and say: God save the Queen and all her loyal subjects.
circa 1895
