WW1 cartoons from Punch magazine by Leonard Raven Hill

Woman-Power. Ceres. "Speed the plough!" Ploughman. "I don't know who you are, ma'am, but it's no good speeding the plough unless we can get the women to do the harvesting." [Fifty thousand more women are wanted on the land to take the place of men called to the colours, if the harvest is to be got in.] (WW1 cartoon showing a shortage of men in farming and a call on women for help due to conscription during WW1)
