Humour comment The New Police Act 19th century cartoon

This is a cartoon etching by the well-known Victorian social caricaturist / cartoonist George Cruikshank (1792 - 1878), dated November 1st, 1829. (1829 is in the reign of William IV, but most of Cruikshank's artistic work was in the long reign of Queen Victoria.) Cruikshank went on to illustrate a number of the books of Charles Dickens. Title: The New Police Act Additional text: The FINISH Description: In 1829 Britain saw The Metropolitan Police Act, an Act of Parliament introduced by Sir Robert Peel. The Act replaced the former system of parish constables and watchmen with the Metropolitan Police of London. This is often considered to be the first modern police force, and its members took their name from the Act's founder - bobbies or peelers'. Cruikshank's cartoon hints at the resentment that followed the setting up of such a body of men. Designed Etched & Published by Geo. Cruikshank - Novr. 1st 1829 More cartoons by George Cruikshank
