A Reflection John Leech Cartoons from Punch magazine
A Reflection. What a curious thing it is, that although policemen are placed at particular spots for the express purpose of making omnibuses "move on," they are generally seen chatting, or cracking the friendly walnut with the conductors, to the manifest inconvenience and great indignation of the passengers. How is this? Is it amiable weakness on the part of the constable, or is it possible that he ever receives pints of beer to neglect his duty? Oh! Let us hope the former!!
