La Caricature has Louis-Philippe and co trying to topple Marianne - while the caption warns that if she falls, they will be crushed.

'Commanders engaged at sea', Thomas Rowlandson, 1785
Rowlandson’s print takes a swipe at the officers in charge of the navy, accusing them of being decadent and unfit for service. The two admirals occupy their time gambling over a child’s toy while the proper objects of their attention – a navigational chart and plan – lie neglected underfoot

Some artillery fun by Fritz Schönpflug, I ignore the date. If I&#8217;m not mistaken, the Austrian German up there means: "I&#8217;m already tired!". "We&#8217;re gonna make it!".

Wider view of that cartoon of Dona. I really need to find out who this cartoonist is - I’ve been giggling at his work all afternoon.
Willy, the Crown Prince, and Dona. Simplissimus magazine, c.1908.
Wilhelm got extremely cross with this publication in the late 1890s after he was shown in a rather unflattering light on the front cover, but it continued until 1944.

Out of fashion. In fashion (1772 Feb. 1.) From the Library of Congress:

Summary: Two gentlemen in contrasted costumes starting back amazed at each other; one wars the fashionable dress of ca. 1750, the other a large laced hat of the Kevenhuller style, a loose, wide-skirted, large cuffed coat, and a bag attached to his wig.
