"Captain Jinks" by Fred Walker

"Captain Jinks" by Fred Walker.

Here is yet another Walker woodcut print, which appeared in the magazine “Punch” in August 1869. Depicting Captain Jinks and the steam launch “Selfish.” In later years it also reminds one of the Arthur Ransome’s book “Swallows and Amazons” and the trouble the children had with a group of boaters they called “The Hullabaloo’s.”
