Medical Practitioners, Politics, Education

    Shows a general practitioner's waiting room in which are several statesmen and allegorical figures associated with the key political issues of the day. Standing near the door to Dr Bull's surgery, and dressed as a footman, is Benjamin Disraeli. In the foreground stands Erin, representing Ireland, while around her are John Bright (dressed as a woman and wearing a dress labelled 'Universal Suffrage') and a figure clutching a scroll marked 'Education' (probably intended to be Henry A Bruce or William E Forster). In the back of the room sits an old and miserly-looking John Russell (1st Earl Russell).
