Pidgeon hole

Active selection in cart:
Pidgeon hole. The miseries consequent on heat and crowding in a restricted space, as displayed in the Pigeon Hole Galleries of John Kemble's newly-constructed Drury Lane Theatre, gave rise to the present caricature. General dissatisfaction was expressed by all but the privileged subscribers ; the lessee's treatment of the humble supporters of the drama, the frequenters of the gallery, gave special offence ; and the illiberality of the management which provided such disgraceful accommodation for its patrons was resented by the unruly proceedings known as the O. P. Riots, which marked the public sense of the transaction. Artist: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827. Date: February 20, 1811. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
