Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849 Featured 4 Aug 2005 Print

Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849

Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849. Comment on the London water supply during the reappearance of cholera in 1848 and 1849. Cholera first appeared in Britain in 1831, and its relationship with poor public hygiene and contaminated water supply was not understood until this was established by John Snow (1813-1858). Snow's work led to legislation paving the way for dramatic improvements in all aspects of public health provision. Cartoon from Punch, London, 1849, with a mis-quote from Coleridge's Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. Artist: Edward Linley Sambourne

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. After qualifying and practising as a surgeon, Owen (1804-1892) made major contributions in the fields of anatomy and paleontology. He was responsible for first coining the word dinosaur (terrible lizard) in 1841 for the fossilized reptiles that had been discovered. Owen was opposed to Darwin's theories, believing that natural selection was insufficient to explain evolution. The figure on the left with a letter in his mouth is TH Huxley (1825-1895), the English biologist who championed Darwin. Cartoon from Edward Linley Sambourne's Fancy Portrait series for Punch, (London, 5 January 1884)
