Punch's Alphabet [1/2]
D M *
Illustration, Drollery, Serial
D M *
A series of illustrations in which letters of the alphabet are represented by social and professional types. For example, the letter 'D' is represented by a cross-sectional view of street, in which a man walks past a dentist's shop where the dentist stands over an empty chair whilst wielding a huge pair of pliers. The caption reveals that 'D is my dentist. He likes me. He's wont to be always at home when I call—so I don't'.
