The good folk at explorepahistory.com say:

As one of the nation's most popular political idealists, Henry George was the subject of constant derision by the mainstream press, including this Puck cartoon in which George plays on his Bass-Less Theories, in a Benefit Concert for the Improvement of the Laborer's Condition that includes the Anarchist Press on trombone, Knights of Labor President Terence Powderly on harp, and the American Federation of Labor on cymbals.


Lazy Curatorâ„¢ sez: And featuring Dr. McGlynn (seen also in this image) on violin!

Happy Labor Day, everyone!
