Nice Concertina cartoons from old Punch magazine, 19th century

Recommended Posts

Quite by accident, I came across the attached cartoon, from  Mr Punch's History of Modern England, vol 2 ( 1857-1874)  p. 146. Punch was a now defunct UK humour magazine, a staple of the middle class  - 1841-2002 .   See also https://archive.org/details/mrpunchshistoryo02gravuoft/page/146/mode/2up.   Perhaps it has been picked up in one of the histories. 

 

A quick search on google also located another, as below. I am sure there are more.  BTW, Warren Fahey-some of you probably know of him as cartoons and photos, mostly from Australia, http://www.warrenfahey.com.au/enter-the-collection/the-collection-m-z/musical-instruments-in-the-australian-tradition/concertina-photography-cartoon-gallery/

Not from Punch, but I have these from my postcard collection.  I look for turn of the last century to 1918 postcards with cartoons of the Royal Navy, whilst looking I came across some of concertina players and couldn’t resist.
