Victorian Era Trade Unions cartoons from Punch magazine
"My Old Friend Homer." ("Every day must begin for me with my old friend Homer—the friend of my youth, the friend of my middle age and of my old age—from whom I hope never to be parted so long as I have any faculties, or any breath in my body."—Mr Gladstone, Dec 3, 1872.) Ghost (rises). "But if a clamorous vile plebeian rose, him with reproof he checked, or tamed with blows, 'be silent, wretch, and think not here allowed that worst of TYRANTS, a USURPING CROWD.'—That is Mr Pope's translation of a passage of mine, sir. What do YOU make of it?"
