Product details The New Stamp Duty

The New Stamp Duty

Joseph Swain

'The New Stamp Duty', 1880. The gentleman in the dark glasses is Mr Henry Fawcett, the blind Postmaster General. He had just introduced a scheme whereby small amounts could be saved in the Post Office Savings Bank by the accumulation of stamps. Twelve penny stamps could be put on one sheet and received as a deposit of one shilling. The little boy is posting his savings, but the little girl on the right has been sent by her more feckless parents to fetch a bottle of beer with their money. From Punch, or the London Charivari, November 27, 1880.
