The Ninth of November, 1888 by William Logsdail

I was interested to read in William Brewer's BMG article of November 1953 that: 'It may also be deemed worthy of record that a fine oil painting in the historic Guildhall, London, entitled "The Ninth of November, Sir James Whitehead's Procession, 1888" depicts, in the foreground of the crowd lining Threadneedle Street outside the Bank of England, a minstrel with his banjo. The painting is by William Logsdail, R.I.' This is that painting and the minstrel is there with his banjo. The painting may have a different message from a simple record of the Lord Mayor's Procession as the date was also when Jack the Ripper murdered Mary Kelly. Sadly, other copies of this painting cut out the minstrel.
