About this work

Description

John Bull grasps the blue shrouded 'cholera' round its neck brandishing a club inscribed: "Heart of oak" and saying: "Now you rascal where are you going to". It replies: "I am going back again" while reaching for a scroll under Bull inscribed: "Reform Bill". The fence through which it squeezes reads: "The wooden walls of England" and bears two signs: "Beware of the Bull" and "Board of Health"
