Punch,  43 (1862), 60.

Shopping at the World's Show



Essay, Drollery


Exhibitions, Commerce, Education

    Laments that the International Exhibition appears to have 'sunk into a shop' owing to the fact that exhibitors now advertise that their wares can be 'obtained' within the exhibition building. Stresses that this stops Mr Punch from treating the exhibition as a place to 'improve his mind' because his wife is constantly being pestered by merchants. Mr Punch insists that he will take no part in any 'underhand transaction' at the 'World's Show'.
