Comical PLasfime Pictures.

OMICAL Pastime Pictures, The pussies at a party

Of fun and frolic full, Will turn to an old maids’ tea—
Each pretty picture turning I hope they won't talk scandal
To another when you pull. Of you, my dears, or me.
Try it and see, my dearies, As you carefully pull each picture,
2 You'll find it as I’ve said, And laugh at each glad rhyme,
Red Riding Hood in the forest You'll find that “Pastime Pictures”
Will turn to the Wolf in bed. Will merrily pass the time!

Clifton Bingham.

To the fireworks at the Palace
The Lord Mayor’s Show will change,
And a Hatter will turn a Tailor—
I think you'll say that’s strange.

















'. @he Sighfs of London.

OM came up from Blackberry Down
To see the sights of London Town;
The first he saw was the Lord Mayor's Show,
There’s nothing like that at home, you know.

Carriages grand and horses fine,

And soldiers marching all in time;
Said Tom, as he looked at it in awe,
“Tt’s the finest sight I ever saw!”

Then Tom to the Crystal Palace went,
And there a glorious day he spent;




He’d never seen such a wondrous sight,*
And best of all, ’twas firework night.

Rockets went up as high as the sky,

And everyone cried out loud “Oh my!’
And Tom went back to Blackberry Down
Wishing he lived in London Town.

ONES



Here’s Riding Hood Red, and the Wolf close behind,

Now pull down the picture and see what you'll find.

BIDDY, I think you really make,
If you but knew, a great mistake.

You may be wise, you may be clever,
You'll never hatch that egg, no, never.



You'd better keep a closer guard
Over your chicks in our farmyard.

There’s one of them who thought, worse luck,

Another chick—it’s really odd

Is taking breakfast with a cod.



Well, that’s, of course it’s plain to you,
A very dangerous thing to do.

You'd better leave that egg alone,
And mind the chicks that are your own.

Ret Riding Hood





NCE on a time Red Riding Hood

Was gathering flowers in Bluebell Wood,
The Wolf came by and said “Good Day”
To her in his politest way.

‘Where are you going so fast?’ said he.
“I’m going my Granny, sir, to see.”
“May I come with you, little maid?”
“Oh no,” said Riding Hood, afraid.

But when she came to Granny’s cot,
Oh what a dreadful fright she got,

She found on the pillow of her bed, ~
Not Granny, but the Wolf, instead.







But Granny came in at the door

And beat the Wolf till he was sore;
Ee cried, while limping off in pain, ——~
“Tll never play such tricks again!”

egg that Biddy hatched behind!





This egg will never hatch—you'll find

At the Zoo.

WHICH did the children like the best
(One day there was a great contest)
Of all the animals at the Zoo,

From the Elephant to the Cockatoo?



* “By the buns and the biscuits that I get,
I’m certain I am the greatest pet!’

‘Indeed you're not,’ the Camel cried,
“They love upon my back to ride,
bs Although they may not give me buns,
4 I’m liked best by the little ones!”





The Elephants and the Monkeys too,:
They all joined in the great to-do:
The Owl alone, like a clever bird,
Sat still and never said a word.

Shopping,




AT, sir, yes, sir—look at that;
Just the thing, sir, for a cat
Who desires to always be

In the best Society!

“Mark my words, sir, people judge
Not by coats, no, that’s all fudge ;
People judge a well-dressed cat
By his hat, sir, by his hat!”

“Coat, sir, yes, sir—perfect fit,
Splendid coat—just look at it;
That’s the coat, sir, for a swell
Up to date, and fits you well!



“Mark my words, I'm sure of it—
Hats, sir, do not count a bit,
People know a dog of note

By his coat, sir, by his coat!”





They both went shopping, but please to note,

Tom bought a hat, and Toby a coat.

FL Dreadful Accident.
Mr. Punch and his wife both
wished to go out,
But they thought it was “low”
to be walking about,
So they hired a Cat, in their
lavish way,



To draw their cart, at sixpence a day.

Now a friend of the Cat came by and said:
“You harness me, and I'll draw them instead,”
But the moment the harness was fixed that Cat
Tore off at a gallop after a rat!

The traces broke, and the cart was spilled,
And poor Mr. Punch and his wife were killed,
But the Cat was punished, I’m glad to say,



And the rat, after all, got safely away.
