This is one of many pen and Indian ink cartoons drawn by William Kerridge Haselden (1872- 1953) and reproduced in the magazine Punch from 1906 until 1936. Haselden was a self- taught artist who produced both political and theatrical cartoons, originally for Sovereign magazine from 1902-1903 and in 1904 for the next 31 years for the Daily Mirror. He was offered a knighthood by Stanley Baldwin but turned it down because he 'didn't want all that fuss'.

The cartoon depicts actors in character from the Little Theatre production of <i> Alice in Wonderland</i>, 1932 - 1933.
