Zoology, Menageries, Artisans

    Shows Prince Albert and Queen Victoria inspecting some large bee hives in what appear to be Royal gardens. The bee-hive closest to the reader, however, contains tiny artisans, all of whom are seen performing their labours. The caption notes, from a 'Morning Paper', that 'These Hives are so constructed, that the honey may be removed without destroying the bees'.
