Punch cartoons by Rowland Emett.

Awarded the Order of the British Empire in 1978 and a grandson of Queen Victoria's Court Engraver, Frederick Rowland Emett was an inventor, artist, cartoonist and theatrical designer. His first works for Punch appeared in 1939 until the late 1950s by which time he became celebrated for his colourful and intricate illustrations of fantastical machines, trams and trains. In 1951 his 'Far Twittering' cartoons were brought to life for the Festival of Britain where his train engines were built as popular attractions and he created machines for the film "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", a rocket for Shell Oil, as well as a 'Forget-Me-Not' computer for Honeywell Computers.
