Keys to History

In accordance with the time-honored custom Mr. Grip fills the stockings of his "proteges" with good things, in recognition of Christmas, which comes "but once a year." (Excerpt from: Bengough, John Wilson. A Caricature History of Canadian Politics: Events from the Union of 1841, as Illustrated by Cartoons from "Grip", and Various Other Sources. Toronto: The Grip Printing and Publishing Co, 1886.)

Cartoon originally published in Grip, December 26th, 1874
