The Days' Doings, 4 November 1871 - An Illustrated and Amusing Record of Passing Events. Cremorne Gardens were popular pleasure gardens by the side of the River Thames in Chelsea, London. The illustration ridicules "the sanctimonious guys of the past season who tried to burke the amusements of the people". Cremorne lost its license because of "a few bigoted and interested persons that pretend the cannot sleep at night on account of the noise created by the cab traffic from Cremorne".
