The Music of the Future, 1887

The Music of the Future, 1887. Wagner's conception of opera as a unification of musical, poetic and scenic elements, which revolutionised the 19th century conception of the genre, obviously did not always appeal to the ears of the new middle classes. From Punch, or the London Charivari, May 28, 1887.

'Education', 1872

'Education', 1872. The Squire is told why his farmworker's child has been withdrawn from school. Whilst much had been done to promote the value of educating children, with new school boards set up to manage increased funding that came through after the Education Act of 1870, schooling was not yet compulsory for all children and parents, especially those to whom the financial value of their children was important. Parents were still free to keep their children away from school for a variety of reasons, as this cartoon points out. From Punch, or the London Charivari, August 7, 1872.

'The Country in the Future', 1876. Artist: Charles Samuel Keene

'The Country in the Future', 1876. A gentleman who has retired to the country tells his city gentleman visitor about the peace and quiet of his new surroundings, disturbed only by the sound of the trains. Both sides of his garden look directly onto railway lines, and the trains can be seen at both sides of the cartoon. This illustrates how the burgeoning railway network was encroaching steadily into previously quiet rural areas in the 1870s. From Punch, or the London Charivari, December 30, 1876.
