Early Motoring Cartoons from Punch magazine

A Case of 'Motor a Tax Is!" She. "I want papa to buy me a motor, but he says he can't afford it, it's too expensive. You've had a motor for some time, Mr Bodgeley, and you didn't find it ran into much, did you?" He (who has had several accidents). "Well, you see, the motor cost £1200, and as we managed to kill or maim all sorts of pigs, cows, and chickens, resides knocking down palings and ploughing up some side-paths, and as I had to pay £1800 damages, you see, it did run into a lot before I had done with it!"
