'Agonising Ordeal', 1865. Mr Robinson gamely howls the 'lovely aria' down old Aunt Grigg's ear trumpet to the accompaniment of the young lady on the piano. The young woman responsible for turning the pages of the music stifles her giggles in her handkerchief whilst, to the right of the picture, another young lady hides herself behind her fan. The rest of the party manages to maintain their dignity in the face of considerable adversity. Social evenings amongst the middle and upper classes often centred around music. From Punch, or the London Charivari, August 19, 1865. (Photo by The Cartoon Collector/Print Collector/Getty Images)
