Friday Photo: Misses Wicket & Trigger

From the British Museum

This has been a busy week, as we’ve returned from our holiday break and are making all sorts of plans for the year ahead. So I thought I would kick off the blogging year with another fun satirical print. This one features Miss Wicket and Miss Trigger, two well-to-do young ladies engaged in the very unladylike activities of hunting and cricket. If you look closely, you’ll see that Miss Trigger is treading upon a paper with the word “Effeminacy” on it. Apparently the artist feels that sports are not compatible with femininity. I, however, am just impressed that someone could score that many points in cricket while wearing petticoats and heels.
