  • General note

    Most of these cartoons refer to Governor Gipps' attempts to introduce new land regulations. "Ways and Means, or the last shift" (Pxx 66/4) is set in the Parramatta Female Factory. Others deal with other political issues, such as "Beautifully Linked" (Pxx 66/5) which is about calls for the Port Phillip settlement to separate from NSW (this cartoon shows Governor Gipps dressed as a convict woman in front of Hyde Park Barracks). "The Rivals" (Pxx 66/1) appears to be about Sydney City Council.
