An original illustration by Mabel Lucie Attwell from her ‘Wot A Life’
cartoon series published with caption:
He’s taken me name and me number –
I’ve visions of jail and of fines
But now how – I just ‘arst –
When I’m going fast –
Can I read the jolly signs!
The ‘Wot A Life’
cartoon series ran in Laughter
, the humour section of The Passing Show
magazine. Records of the length of the series differ. Some suggest from 1933 to 1937, while others note that the cartoons appeared in The London Opinion
, either before or after The Passing Show
, and as late as 1943.
