John Leech Cartoons from Punch magazine
The Excursionist as Mr Hall Would Have Him - Thank You, Mr Hall! "Mr Hall, Chief Magistrate at Bow Street, cannot discover any 'inconvenience' in the present working of the Act, but recommended that the poor Sunday excursionist should 'strap a knapsack on his back, with two of three bottles or beer, and the child to boot, sooner than the Sunday should be desecrated by opening the public-houses.'"
