[These cartoons, which appeared in Melbourne Punch about 1889-90, are published here as samples of the work Luther D. Bradley was doing at that period of his career. The subjects treated have, of course, no savour of the present day. "Sir Graham," represented as having broken down on the road, was Sir Graham Berry, agent general in London for the colony of Victoria. He was seemingly no favorite, politically, of Melbourne Punch. The other cartoon refers to the strike of dock laborers in London in 1889. Workingmen of Australia contributed large sums to the cause of the strikers.]

["Miss Chicago" in the patchwork of a dress she had outgrown was the Bradley way of expressing the need of a new charter for Chicago. This cartoon was reproduced widely and used as campaign material by the charter amendment advocates in 1904. It brought home with force the antiquated system of government the city was forced to "wear."]
