Too Many Cooks

EDITORS COMMENTS
by Lawson Wood - A Delightful Scene of Unnoticed Adoration in a London Square In this charming and humorous illustration by Lawson Wood, titled "Too Many Cooks," we are transported back in time to a quintessential London square, blanketed in a fresh layer of snow. At the heart of the scene, a bobby, or British police officer, is seen taking his leisurely beat, his attention focused on the crisp winter air and the peaceful surroundings. As the policeman walks along the snow-covered streets, he remains blissfully unaware of the cooks and servants who have emerged from their respective homes, each gazing at him with adoring eyes. The cooks, dressed in their traditional uniforms, hold out trays of steaming hot dishes, eager to offer a taste of their culinary creations to the unsuspecting officer. The humor in this illustration lies in the contrast between the policeman's obliviousness to the cooks' affections and the cooks' unabashed infatuation with him. Wood masterfully captures the essence of the British class system, where the servants, though an integral part of the household, were expected to maintain a certain level of subservience and discretion. This image not only showcases the comedic side of history but also highlights the warmth and camaraderie that existed between the police and the community they served. The snow-covered square, with its elegant townhouses and the cooks' humble abodes, adds to the overall charm and allure of this delightful scene. Lawson Wood's "Too Many Cooks" is a testament to the rich history and humor that can be found in the most unexpected places. This print is a must-have for anyone with a love for historical comedy, British culture, or simply a good laugh.
