Home Front Britain: 1914 to 18: the cartoonist's view

Original cartoon artwork depicting life on the home front 1914-18 through the eyes of Haselden, a brilliant humourist with a highly successful 33-year career at the Mirror. He produced a cartoon for the paper every weekday during World War 1, and his multi-frame style makes him the father of the British newspaper strip cartoon.

In partnership with the British Cartoon Archive.
