A Ride to the Hustings. Strutt-ing with a C__dish.
Etchin, very rare. Sheet 220 x 190mm (8¾ x 7½"). Trimmed.
A cavalry officer rides on the shoulders of a civilian named Cavendish, saying 'I Say Trucky Didn't you vote for Infant Slavery'. His mount replies 'That Subject drop or I'll drop you. Stick Fast to me I'll see you through'. The satire is apparently aimed at those opposing the child labour laws. The Cavendish family included the extremely wealthy Dukes of Devonshire, who were regular targets for the Chartist movement in Derbyshire.
