I feel duty-bound to share a few more funnies from the The New Punch Library. For it was today in 1841 that Henry Mayhew and Ebenezer Landells founded Punch magazine with an investment of £25. Originally called Punch or the London Charivari, Mayhew initially co-edited it with Mark Lemon before drifting off to leave Lemon at the helm for almost thirty years.
All these examples are early 20th Century, up until the 1930s. You can see my previous posts of Mr Punch in London Town from the New Punch Library here.
And here’s one specially for London Historians members who are guides.
