I want to share some of my absolute favourites here. Sorry they are such bad quality, I had to take photos of the book.
Punch cartoons are one of the (extremely few) things that make me proud to be British as I think they really sum up the subtle and wry sense of humour that pervades this damp land.
I'll start off with the one that I find most amusing. Had to cut the caption off, sorry, but it's there beneath:
"It's very well to go down for six weeks into the country by yourself, to give up tobacco and stimulants, and to live the whole day, so to speak, in the open air: But all this will do you no good, unless you cultivate a cheerful frame of mind and take a lively view of things." This cartoon is from 1869!
"..and of course there will be the usual search fee"
