Grand Show of Prize Vegetarians

From Punch magazine 1852 (Courtesy of IVU). I have discovered that Punch had an earlier vegetarianism cartoon in 1848. If anyone has the earlier image (entitled 'The Vegetarian Movement') I would be delighted to see it.


  1. Great cartoon! Reminds me of the great Channel 4 series of a few years back: The 1900 House. A family lived like Victorians but they were veggies, and had quite a tough time, as veggies were not considered normal.

  2. fran,

    Thanks. I don't recall seeing the C4 series, but it would've been interesting.

    Thanks. It made me smile.
