Cartoon of drunk MP, 1856

Astute observers of Parliament were found inside the House as well as outside. In the 1850s and 1860s, Member of Parliament Alfred Domett captured the foibles and habits of his fellow parliamentarians, preserving them in a small sketchbook. His 1856 drawing shows one of his colleagues, flanked by two burly police officers, staggering home the worse for wear.
