N04329 SCENE ON THE DECK OF A STEAMER

Inscr. ‘L Raven-Hill’ b.l., ‘LRaven-Hill’ (the ‘LR’ in monogram) b.r., and under mount (in ink): Passenger (faintly) “No more basins, Steward? Oh dear, how's that?”Steward “Well, mum, you see this' eres a pleasure steamer mum.”’
Indian ink, touched with white, 8 3/8×9 3/8 (21·5×23·5), mounted on cardboard, 11×11 1/2 (28×29).
Bequeathed by J.R. Holliday 1927.

Presumably done at some time between 1895 and 1910. A search through copies of Punch for the period has been unsuccessful and it seems this drawing was never used for publication. The artist contributed several cartoons on the theme of sea-sickness which were published.
