A Memento of the Great Public Question of Reform. Engraving, 1832

This patriotic engraving was sent gratis to subscribers of The Bell’s New Weekly Messenger. Daniel O’Connell’s importance to the Reform Movement is denoted by his position in the upper left of the picture. He shares the highest rank with three other reformers. On the upper right, wearing a full-bottomed judge’s wig, is Henry Brougham, whom we shall see again in the next corridor.
