|Main Creator:||O'Hea, J. F. (John Fergus), ca.1838-1922, artist|
The joy of Queen Victoria's golden jubilee is juxaposed with the pain of Erin's imprisonment inside "an imperial institute". Despite Erin's declaration of loyalty, she has been sent to cell number 87 by the governor (and prime minister), Lord Salisbury, who peers around the door of the cell. Erin points to the "Jubilee Coercion Bill/Evictions/Closure/Poverty", which lies at the foot of Queen Victoria's bust.
