Thought Bubble Presents... Political Cartoons Coll

Thought Bubble Presents... Political Cartoons Coll


Join Librarian and Urban Historian Antony Ramm at Leeds Central Library for an illuminating exploration of their Political Cartoons Collection, which offers a fascinating look at caricature and controversy in the politics of 19th-century Leeds focusing on three key elections – 1868, 1874 and 1880.This talk will give you the keys to unlock the satire behind the themes, issues and personalities depicted in a Collection comprising more than 200 individual images. Antony will also take a look at the occasionally-mysterious artists and publishers behind these cartoons, asking who the intended audience was and what affect these sometimes-shocking images actually had on the election process.Pieces from the political cartoon collection will be on display in room 700 from 24th October to 6th November.
