Criticising capitalism

Criticising capitalism

Tomorrow magazine was founded by the artist and political leftist Kennaway Henderson. He was a gifted cartoonist and used his magazine to critique and satirise politicians and the establishment. This 1934 cartoon represents capitalists as charlatans who trick the poor. It was images like these that led to the magazine being accused of subversion and closed down by the government.
