The Banner Picture

The picture used is by Victorian librettist W.S. Gilbert, which is signed by him under his childhood name “Bab”. It was published in Songs of a Savoyard, a collection of illustrations which accompanied lines from various Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas.

This particular picture accompanies the line “So I fell in love with a rich attorney’s elderly ugly daughter” which is in the Judge’s song from Trial by Jury.  I once played the part of a juryman in Trial with the Helensburgh Savoy – and jolly good fun it was too.
