The art of gentle humour

Punch; Sillince
"We really must be going now, darling; we have to get right out to Surbiton"

... or the gentle humour of art. 

 

Bill Sillince (1906-1974) was a 2nd world wartime cartoonist. 

 

A couple of examples here:

the one on the left is from 1937 and very gently satirical. 

The one on the right was from 27 September 1939 and has a melancholic feel.

 

Punch; Sillince
"I wonder if I shall get any customers today, Fred"
