This hand-coloured lithograph, measuring 36.0 cm x 22.7 cm and consisting of seven panels of an original ten, depicts in cartoon form the deprivations suffered by single women migrating to Australia in the 1830s. Titled 'FEMALE EMIGRATION!', the scenes follow the story of the women leaving Britain, their rough crossing of the Bay of Biscay, sleeping and eating arrangements on board, their arrival in New South Wales and the poor conditions awaiting them there. Captions accompany the panels with additional speech bubbles in two of them.
