Full image caption

‘Horrible London: or, The Pandemonium of Posters’ is an illustration and text that appeared in Punch on October the 13th, 1888. It features an image of the devil pasting up posters that depict the murders committed by Jack the Ripper. The text is critical of the bill posters and ends with the lines,
‘These mural monstrosities, reeking of crime,
Flaring horridly forth amidst squalor and grime,
Must have an effect which will tell in good time
Upon legions of dull-witted toilers.’
