Cartoon, Up Goes the Quartern Loaf

Cartoon, Up Goes the Quartern Loaf -- Now, Gents, Give us only a Little Encouragement -- Say a Five Shilling Duty -- and UP Goes the Quartern Loaf! Derby and Disraeli are depicted as street entertainers, watched by a crowd of unhappy spectators who are worried about the price of bread going up. Disraeli had suggested in a speech in his Buckinghamshire constituency that the government wanted to support agricultural interests, meaning that money could be raised for farmers by adding tax to a loaf of bread. People were clearly worried that this could mean a new Corn Law, after the old one had been repealed. Date: 1852
