'The March of Intellect', 1828.

One of a series of colour etchings published by G Humphrey of St James Street, London. Paul Pry's 'March of Intellect' series of satirical prints appeared between 1825 and 1829, lampooning the political issues and events of the day. Here, fantastical modes of transport, gas light, the Thames Tunnel and a proposed Channel bridge are satirised. Workers are seen relaxing in the streets, reflecting the belief that the lower classes' new acquisition of knowledge through education would result in the neglect of their duties.
