Advert for State Express Cigarettes 1912

'An Inspiration' - an advertisement for State Express Cigarettes, showing a very smart dapper young gent wooing his beloved, inspired in the confidence and knowledge his style and sophistication of appearance is providing, aided and abetted of course by the obligatory State Express Cigarette gently smoking from the corner of his mouth in the late evening air...

Origin Species, CH Bennett, Courting man - frog

'He would a-wooing go'. Satire on Darwin's 'Origin of Species' showing the evolution of a rotund man, from a frog. Middle aged, swelled out of all proportion and adorned with the newest waistcoat and heavy watch-chain, with a flower in his buttonhole and curl in his hair. He is fat, complacent and happy...and has come courting! It's easy to see how he might have evolved from the frog, but alas the frogs fate is sealed by the duck (laid from the egg evolved from his hat) who consumes him (divorce, bankruptcy?). His wooing is at an end.
