    On the left, members of the 'Upper Class' are seen standing in a field, with one of them shooting a pigeon. On the right members of the 'Lower Class' are seen shooting a gull from a rowing boat at sea. The title of the illustration questions whether the aristocratic form of hunting is any more legitimate than that practised by the lower classes.
