March of the Intellect, 1829. This imaginative print by 'Paul Pry' [William Heath] satirizes the social effects of steam power. Both technological innovation and modern architecture are ridiculed. Steam power is blamed for the breakdown of distinctions between the social classes. This is illustrated in the central scene by a dustman eating a pineapple (a luxury fruit) and his companion an ice cream.
