The poster in a recent post on archives and the burning of the Four Courts reminded me to root out this old punch cartoon upstairs.
Taken from the July 12th 1922 edition of Punch, or the London Charivari, it shows the ‘Spirit of the Law’ in discussion with a menacing looking republican figure, with the smouldering remains of the Four Courts in the background.
OUT OF THE ASHES.
Spirit of Law (To Irish Rebel): “You may have destroyed my courts and my records, but you have not destroyed me!”
At least two thirds of Come Here To Me will be at this, feel free to say hello.
