Cruikshank’s “Oxford Transports” from 1824

Robert Cruikshank, “OXFORD TRANSPORTS, or Albanians doing Penance for Past Offences”, March 1, 1824. Author’s collection.

Robert Cruikshank (1789 – 1856) is the brother of the well-know satirist, George Cruikshank. His satire “Oxford Transports” may very well depict the profusion of wine I hope to share with my friends at the end of the pandemic.

My last post was many months ago at the end of January. Since then the new nature of work due to the pandemic has placed all-consuming demands on my time. I still love curious old bottles of wine and even older wine history which I will endeavor to begin posting about, once again, this fall.
