"Unclean! Unclean!"

Keppler, Udo J., 1872-1956
Illustration shows an old man labeled "T.C.P." (Thomas Collier Platt) wearing ragged clothing and holding a crutch labeled "Republican Machine"; a small jug labeled "Express Co." is next to him where he sits, on the steps to a municipal building showing the base of columns in the background. Everyone nearby is fleeing from him as though he is a leper.
