Thomas Onwhyn’s Beach Comics: Mama at the Sea Side, 1857

Up for your enjoyment today, Mama at the Sea Side, created or published on April 30th, 1857. This is one of a series of short cartoon booklets about the adventures of a Victorian Age family at the beach — remarkably the same family, as these appeared over several years from the mid-1850s to early 1860s. Creator Thomas Onwhyn was an illustrator of novels (some of them unauthorized printings of works by Dickens), and the son of a publisher of tourist guides. The younger Onwhyn created numerous small cartoon booklets, and, it has just struck me while posting this series, that approximately half of Onwhyn’s comic booklets (maybe more) are related to tourism!
