'Going Down to the House', 1866. Lord Russell remarks Well, Bright, What do you Want? Jonny Bright replies Anything your Honour is Willing to Give me Now. John Bright, a passionate supporter of parliamentary reform, touches his hat to little Lord Russell and Mr Gladstone as they pass over the cleanly swept path of Reform. Mr Bright would be pleased to play any part in the reform process that they may delegate to him. Crossing-sweepers of both sexes and all ages were a common sight on the streets of London as they worked to keep the crossings clean. They were, of course, entirely dependant upon the generosity of those using the crossings. From Punch, or the London Charivari, February 10, 1866.
