Proceeding to Alnwick, 1826.
Etching, 180 x 330mm. 7 x 13". Three vertical folds, as normal.
Political satire; probably Henry Thomas Liddell, first Earl of Ravensworth (1797 -1878), who topped the poll for the June 1826 general election in Northumberland, processing triumphantly to Alnwick, the most important town in the constituency. The carriage is pulled by several men, two of whom are identified in pencil captions. The two Tory candidates Liddell and Matthew Bell were returned.
