Nobody in my experience was ever wearing a white coat.

1957: It worked!

It was so irresistible that yesterday’s sales lady no longer needs to work there.

1953: Chutzpah

True to his emphasis on motoring Brockbank shows an example of extreme cheek. Having knocked him off his bicycle she is only interested in her needs.

1953: A new use for the doublet

A fanciful look at a Sixteenth Century fashion item which would hardly be waterproof.

1957: A brilliant future

That was a time when many predictions were being made about a wonderful future of plenty and not much need for working. This cartoon reflects all that without any hint of cynicism. How different from now!

Re: The Pages of Punch

Sorry

I have come upon a snag that I don't have time just now to sort out.

My jpg files all of a sudden are not regarded as valid. I hope to sort this out later today.

Could this be related to the changes made to this site last night? It was transferred to a new server. Perhaps ask Azz.

It's happening to a lot of us. I hope it gets sorted soon as well.
Your Punch cartoons are super, Mr Magoo. Not seen this thread before.

Looking carefully, we can find the auctioneer dressed in black with a black hat. He isn’t likely to get any bids. Once again, in a Thelwell cartoon - no ponies or little girls in sight.
I love this one, Thelwell was brilliant. I've got a collection of Thelwell books & memorabilia. Including the Chiltern figures of Penelope & Kipper.
