WW1 cartoons from Punch magazine by Leonard Raven Hill

Mrs Partington of Potsdam. ["In the winter of 1824 there set in a great flood...; the tide rose to an incredible height; the waves rushed upon the houses; and everything was threatened with destruction. In the midst of this sublime storm Dame Partington, who lived upon the beach, was seen at the door of her house...trundling her mop, squeezing out the sea-water and vigorously pushing away the Atlantic Ocean...The Atlantic was roused; Mrs Partington's spirit was up; but I need not tell you that the contest was unequal. The Atlantic beat Mrs Partlington." - Sydney Smith.] (Wilhelm II uses the head of Karl I of Austria as a Peace Offensive mop at the end WW1)
