Blood Money: How it is made and how it is spent. Part of a coloured wood engraving published on a double spread of the Tamahawk album, these two images are on pages 70-71 of Vol. VI dated 19th February 1870. This part of the image is the representation of 'How it (money) is made', it depicts a seamstress dressed in rags and straining her eyes, illuminated by a lamp. She is seated on the lid of a box that reads ' Death & Co. manufacturers'. In contrast, the image representing 'How it (money) is spent', depicts two business men indulging in their greed at a table laden with fine food and wines
