London: Hendersons, 1925. Zincograph post card, sheet 90 x 140mm.
A socialist political card, bemoaning the ''Octopium Landlordicuss (Common London Landlord). This Fishy Creature lives on Rent., Its Tentacles grasp 5 Square Miles of London. This Absorbant Parasite sucks £20,000,000 a year from its Victims, giving Northing in return. The People must destroy It - or be destroyed''. Each of the eight tentacle encloses an estate, those of the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, Lord Portman, Howard de Malden, the Duke of Norfolk. the Duke of Bedford & Earl Cadogan.
