[n.d., c.1854.]
Coloured etching, sheet 211 x 308mm. Water stains.
A light-hearted illustration of life in a nineteenth century Australian settlement, featuring a game of cards. The 'Regent Street' sign is probably a reference to Melbourne in Victoria.

By John Leech (1817 - 1864), draughtsman on wood, comic illustrator, lithographer, etcher and painter; born at London. He contributed to 'Punch' between 1841-64, and also practised book illustration, including Dicken's 'Christmas Carol.'
