'Pity The Poor Prisoners?', 1868. A satirical look at the state of the nation's prisons in the mid-Victorian period. Here, a group of lower-class prisoners, probably enjoying, (in the view of Mr Punch), rather better living conditions than they might outside prison, complain about the standard of the shaving facilities provided and the possibility of skin diseases. Mr Punch would have little sympathy for such complaints. From Punch, or the London Charivari, November 21, 1868. (Photo by The Cartoon Collector/Print Collector/Getty Images)
