The Moon and I
Ah, pray make no mistake, We are not shy,
Were very wide awake, The moon and I
I have an idea that this Victorian greeting card represents Lord Randolph Churchill. He was Leader of the House of Commons and Chancellor of the Exchequer aged just 37, the political career of Winston Churchill’s father ended in 1886.
Does anyone have a notion if this picture is a satire on a topical issue of the time?
