Product details A Holiday Task

A Holiday Task

Joseph Swain

'A Holiday Task', 1880. A bewhiskered aristocrat is handed a broom by Mr Punch and told to begin cleaning up. Great pieces of the inner cities were owned by the aristocracy. Rents were expensive, whilst conditions were appalling. The owners would rarely visit their holdings, leaving business to do with leases and rent collection to their representatives. Few made any effort to ensure that the accommodation provided was habitable. From Punch, or the London Charivari, September 25, 1880.
