Poster Print of 'The City Police', 1863. Artist: John Tenniel
'The City Police', 1863. Magog comments: I Say, Brother Gog, They Seem to Think We Ain't No Sort O'Use. Here, following the recently highlighted failings of the City's police force, Gog and Magog are shown as being under siege from the citizens of London. Gog and Magog stand back to back in the centre, holding their truncheons, but ineffectual in the face of the multitude. Gog of Magog is mentioned a number of times in the Book of Ezekiel. In Punch they are often depicted as representative of the capital's policemen, and there is often a particular reference to the traffic problems in the City centre. From Punch, or the London Charivari, April 11, 1863.Gog of Magog is mentioned a number of times in the Book of Ezekiel. In Punch they are often depicted as representative of the capital's policemen, and there is often a particular reference to the traffic problems in the City centre. Gog and Magog, each clutching his truncheon, stand back to back as they are besieged by the citizens of London. This cartoon relates to the 'enormous increase of the number of the populace who squeezed themselves into the narrow streets of the City', owing to the refusal of the Government to let the Lord Mayor and his retinue ride at the head of a Royal procession. All attempts made by the police to control this influx of people failed
