Cruikshank, George, 1792-1878 :Probable effects of over female emigration, or importing the fair sex from the Savage Islands in consequence of exporting all our own to Australia / designed & etched by George Cruikshank. [London : s.n., ca 1851]

Reference Number: B-021-047

Cruikshank's burlesque cartoon is a repsonse to the exodus of women who took up offers of assisted passage to Australia and in so doing created a critical shortage of women in England. His dockside scene depicts a crowd of pallid and astonished-looking Englishmen who have come to greet the arrival of a ship load of smiling dark skinned women who have responded to the call for female immigration
