InterWar cartoons from Punch magazine by Leonard Raven Hill

The Curse and the Cure. The Lady. "May I inquire what you think you're doing?" The Knight. "Madam, I am proposing to smoke out yon noisome dragon whose noxious fumes offend you." The Lady. "Oh, thank you so much!" [The electricity generated by the proposed power station at Battersea will no doubt diminish the volume of smoke from the chimneys of houses where coal is now freely used. But the process of generation will entail the combustion of coal - involving the discharge of noxious fumes and gases - on a scale unprecedented in this country."] (an InterWar cartoon showing a knight with his Battersea Power Station trident about to kill the dragon of pollution as London looks on from her castle)
