Comment: Brilliant example of the late caricature of George Cruikshank, last of the great caricaturists beginning with Hogarth. He specialized in satirizing fashion and culture, rather than politics. In this plate X, young master Will Blockhead in the waiting room at the Admiralty, where the hopes and dreams of Royal Navy officers go to  prosper or die.
