Great Britain - Commerce


  • Left, a ship symbolising British commerce is going at full speed; right, the ship symbolising German commerce is rusty and covered with spider's webs. Drawing by A.G. Racey, 191-.
  • A British manufacturer is painting advertising boards inscribed "Made in Canada", "Made in England" and "Made in the British Empire", while a board saying "Made in Germany" is consigned to a garbage can; representing the embargo on German trade in British territories in World War I. Drawing by A.G. Racey, 191-.
  • English commerce is shown as a cow milked by the Dutch, the horns sawn off by the Americans and its milk drunk by the French and the Spanish, while an Englishman wrings his hands at this distressing sight. Etching, ca. 1780.
