'Oxford in the Future, or the New Freshman', 1865. The Navvy says Gallon O' Audit Ale, Guv'nor, Please. I's got I' Blunt to Pay Vor'n The Liberal MP, Lord Palmerston, is here dressed as a navvy approaching a startled Oxford University.

Suddenly, it appears, Oxford is faced with being overrun by the working classes with all their vices, a terrible thought even if the navvies have cash in their pockets. From Punch, or the London Charivari, September 9, 1865.
