Julius Mendes Price’s London Types, 2

August 17, 2013
by the gentle author

Here is the second set of London Types designed and written by celebrated war artist Julius Mendes Price and issued by Carreras with Black Cat Cigarettes in 1919. Although Price reveals a strange fascination with those involved in social control, he counters this with a generous appreciation of those employed in the most menial occupations. Given the pick of these jobs, I think I should choose to be the Keeper of the Ape House at the Zoo.

    This sight is sheer joy, as a Heritage minded person who believes in the past as a guide to the future, I cannot express the pleasure I have derived from reading your fine words and admiring your images. I am from a dock land community and found much within these pages to race me back to times of joy, of simplicity, of total community. Thank you.
