The Confidence Trick


Reprint of a cartoon from the London Chronicle newspaper

This cartoon depicts a man, smoking a pipe, to the left of the picture, who holds several bits of paper marked 'Votes'. To the right of the picture, leaning over him are three large men, dressed in black and wearing top hats. They are marked 'The Co. Promoter', 'The Manager' and 'The Director' from left to right. Behind their backs they hold pieces of paper marked Co. Prospectus and Electric Trust.
