The End of the Season, 1871. Artist: Joseph Swain

The End of the Season, 1871. Prime Minister Gladstone is portrayed as the matronly Britannias butler. The current session of Parliament had come to an end, and ministers were off to enjoy a long summer recess. However, the session had not enjoyed much success and many matters, including the Licensing Bill and the problem with Russia over their claim on the Black Sea, remained unresolved. Britannia is not impressed. From Punch, or the London Charivari, August 26, 1871

The End of the Season, 1871

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating print that captures the political climate and discontentment of its time. The artist, Joseph Swain, portrays Prime Minister Gladstone as Britannia's butler in a satirical depiction of the state of affairs in Parliament. As the current session comes to an end and ministers prepare for a long summer recess, there is a sense of disappointment lingering in the air. The cartoon symbolizes the lackluster success of the session, with unresolved matters such as the Licensing Bill and tensions with Russia over their claim on the Black Sea still looming large. Britannia herself appears unimpressed by these failures, her disdainful expression reflecting public sentiment towards politicians at that time. This engraving from Punch magazine serves as both a critique and commentary on politics during this period. It highlights not only Gladstone's role as Prime Minister but also his affiliation with the Liberal Party. The image reminds us that even powerful figures can face disapproval when they fail to deliver on promises or address pressing issues. Overall, "The End of the Season, 1871" offers us an intriguing glimpse into 19th-century politics through satire and symbolism. It serves as a reminder that political dissatisfaction is not limited to any specific era but has always been part of our democratic heritage.
