Punch Magazine 7/13/83
Punch magazine was founded in 1841, and enjoyed over a century as a weekly humor magazine, satirical but not "low." It was immensely popular and influential in its day, featuring many famous cartoonists and humor writers.
By the time I was in England, Punch was long past its glory days, and would cease publication in 1992, but I still found it amusing enough to save an issue or two. Here's some bits from the July 13, 1983 issue.
