Times Waxworks, 1881. Artist: Joseph Swain

Time's Waxworks, 1881. Father Time shows Mr Punch around Madame Tussauds, the waxwork museum of celebrities that opened in 1802. In the background can be seen representatives of Afghanistan, India and Zululand. Added to the collection is the menacing figure of Irish anarchy, complete with blunderbuss, knife, pistol and dynamite. This relates to the past year of 1881 being dominated by Irish affairs and ending with continued, if not increased, violence and lawlessness in that country. The anarchist belongs in the Chamber of Horrors due to the violence being perpetrated against women and children in particular. From Punch, or the London Charivari, December 31, 1881
