Caption
Pen and ink drawing by John Fergus O'Hea (circa 1838-1922) - a political cartoonist and nationalist who sometimes published under the pseudonym Spex. This satirical cartoon reflects the artist's pro-home-rule sympathies. The women are depicted in the national dress of their country - Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. The following inscription is written on the back of the drawing: 'Toasting the Easter Cake "Now girls a toast, Here's to a long friendship and a strong friendship - and may we pull together and push together now and ever" Chorus - Amen! Say we all of us."'
