John Proctor (1836-1914) was an eminent Victorian artist, cartoonist and illustrator. Well known in his day for political cartoons in the rivals to Punch , 'Judy' and 'Moonshine'. He also illustrated many books and was reputed to be Lewis Carroll's preferred choice to illustrate 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' instead of John Tenniel. Sadly John Proctor said he was too busy at the time! So everyone has heard of John Tenniel but not my great great grandfather John Proctor!

John Proctor (1836-1914)

by John Adcock “I can run a hundred yards with any man of my own age, and give a good account of myself; and though I have been drawing, first on steel, then on wood, and now in pen-and-ink (having seen steel resign in favour of wood, and wood in favour of pen-and-ink), I am quite ready to welcome any new development in the art world.” - A Chat with John Proctor, the Temple Magazine Vol 3, 1898-1899.

Funny Folks

Funny Folks was launched by publisher James Henderson on Saturday December 12th 1874 (the first edition was actually given away free as a supplement to The Weekly Budget Christmas Triple Number for 1874), and was effectively the first comic, though it bore scant resemblance to the comics of today. A successor to satirical cartoon sheets like Everybody's Album and The Looking Glass, it was a weekly eight-page tabloid with initially a roughly 50-50 ratio of text and pictures (though the...
