Item Type: Cartoon - Punch P 206
Full Description: A bound volume of "Punch Magazine" for July to December 1897, in which Page 206 features a political cartoon of Lord Rosebery playing a concertina in the street. The downward class migration of the concertina's status in late Victorian times had led to its use as an item of humour, ridicule and an emblem of the working class.
