Lot 255: Stone Deaf! A Print by T. Browne, a part hand-coloured vertical format print taken from a Victorian issue of the 'Boy's Own Paper' depicting an elderly lady purposefully stepping out along the middle of the highway and laden with shopping, whilst behind her a group of cyclists approach down the hill, the leader perched atop a high bicycle which is, from the look of dismay on his face, obviously out of control, the print with some browning through age, but otherwise in good, un-creased condition, and measuring 37 x 25cm, mounted, framed and glazed. Thomas Arthur Browne, RI, RBA, RMS, (1872-1910), born in Nottingham, was a cartoonist, strip cartoonist and illustrator who also contributed to other late Victorian comics such as 'Scraps', 'Chums' and 'Illustrated Chips'.
