Product details The Russian Garotter

The Russian Garotter

Joseph Swain

'The Russian Garotter', 1870. The Russian exclaims No one Looking! Now's the Time to Hit Him! A Russian is seen creeping up on Turkey as he stands watching the bitter fighting between Prussia and France in the background. Britain, pledged to preserve the independence of Turkey, is represented by Mr Policeman Bull, the representative of British law and order. Turkey was beginning to experience internal administrative problems, and Russia was beginning to cast covetous eyes in that direction. The reference to the garrotting comes from the rash of garrotting crimes that had taken place in London some years earlier. From Punch, or the London Charivari, December 3, 1870.
