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.

Much of the early Punch output is in the public domain, one site that may be of interest is http://www.punchcartoons.com/ .
