Sir Robert Peel, c.1850

Engraving of Sir Robert Peel (1788-1850), the English statesman and Prime Minister, surrounded by illustrations of his political achievements. Peel was a Conservative MP who held strong views on Irish Catholicism and Free Trade vs Protectionism, but is probably best remembered for organising the London Police Force in 1829. For a long time, British policemen were nicknamed 'Peelers' or 'Bobbies' in reference to Robert Peel. On 29th June 1850, Peel was thrown from his horse and sustained fatal injuries.
