This illustration to an article called ‘Death in the Glass,’ appeared in the children’s magazine Onward in 1882. It would perhaps now be considered too upsetting for young readers; the article focuses on how otherwise reasonable men behave badly when drunk.

“Her home, dark and degraded by her husband’s drunkenness.” – p. 43.
