Anti-Teapot League


The sitters are holding copies of 'The Anti-Teapot Review', a satirical journal published between 1864 and 1869. Touted as a 'Magazine of Politics, Literature and Art', the periodical aimed itself at the moralism implicit in the praise of tea by social critics such as Ritchie and Sigmond.

Photographed by the Fergus Brothers of Greenock, Largs and Millport.
