Going Down to the House

John Tenniel


Wood engraving

Punch (10 Febuary 1866)

Tenniel depicts the Quaker reformer John Bright, who was leading the campaign for the Second Reform Bill, as a crossing sweeper (Like Dickens's Little Jo). Lord Russell asks, “Wel, Bright, what do you want?” ‘Johnny Bright” answers, “Anything your honour is willing to give me now.”
