Punch :Here and there; or, emigration a remedy. London, 8 July 1848.

Reference Number: PUBL-0043-1848-15

Two contrasting scenes. On the left ("Here". i.e England), a vagrant family of parents and four barefooted ragged children, standing outside a building, with smokestacks in the background. There is a notice on the door of the building heading 'caution all vagrants'. On the right ('There' i.e. somewhere in the colonies) is a family that has emigrated to one of the colonies, an interior scene with well-fed children and the parents at a groaning table, with hams and a animal carcass hanging above and the mother just serving a dish, while the father carves. A dog is seated at the table and a baby is in a cradle on the floor. There is a palm tree or tree fern visible through the window to the outside, and a dark-skinned native is being served a dish by the oldest daughter of the family.
