Title from published caption.
Proof of a wood engraving after an illustration by Du Maurier for Punch's almanack for 1879.
One of a series of three cartoons by Du Maurier, published in Punch's almanack for 1879 with the caption "Edison's anti-gravitation under-clothing."
Printed on the same sheet with the third cartoon in this series, which bears the caption: "Edison's anti-gravitation under-clothing : Cissy. "Blow harder, harder, Papa! Blow me up to the ceiling!!" (see 1986.1228:1).
Cartoon shows a man riding a bicycle with his wife seated on a stand on the rear; she tows her two children through the air behind them on a string like kites, while the family St. Bernard runs beside them with a baby flying through the air on a string attached to the dog's collar; in the background, two male cyclists are towing two women through the air.
