A new way to pay the national debt by Gillray 1786 18th century british political cartoon

James Gillray  1756 – 1815

It’s a left over from wheelbarrow week.  It is caricature, so you have to take that into consideration but still very interesting.   Special note – watch for that sailor hat again.  it is probably a worn out tricorn hat with the brim cut off almost entirely, it shows up frequently and at times looks very much like a bowler hat.

Detail:  sailor, sailor hat,  sailor clothing, military band, wheelbarrow, coins, money, tricorn, hair.
