The Publican's Friend


'The Publican's Friend', 1863. Mr. Juniper (Sotto Voce) says: Thankee, My Dear Bishop, Thankee! That Little Game O'Yourn'll BeThe Making of Me. he advent of the railways had made Sunday excursions popular amongst the skilled working class. However, Sabbatarians opposed such frivolous occupations on the Day of Rest. Here, the bishop is seen ripping down the advertisements for Sunday family trips out, whilst the publican, on the other side of the road, rubs his hands in anticipation of increased profits. The irony is that middle and upper-class concerns about the moral failings of the working class tended to focus much more strongly on the dire effects of alcohol than almost anything else during this period. From Punch, or the London Charivari, January 17, 1863.
