The Boy Jones

Few characters caught the Victorian imagination quite like "The Boy Jones," whose audacious escapades in Buckingham Palace made him an unlikely hero of newspapers, comic periodicals, cartoons and penny dreadfuls. The cartoon above was from the Odd Fellow, 24 April 1841. His entertaining story was told in All the Year Round on 5 July 1884.
