Westminster Follies

Punch
Westminster Follies by Bernard Partridge

No, this is not about Boris or Keir, or any of the other sorry excuses for politicians. (I do beg your pardon; I'm just getting a little jaded.) 

 

These original vintage Punch prints  are by Bernard Partridge, who  became the senior artist for Punch and was highly thought of as a political cartoonist. He was a 'Sir', an honour not accorded to many illustrators, and was given the title by Stanley Baldwin (shown here as Charlie Chaplin) the year before these cartoons were published in 1926.
