Notes Prime Minister Laurier came to British attention almost immediately after taking office. Queen Victoria and her Generals took pride in the ethnic diversity of the British Empire. He was knighted as Sir Wilfrid. Vanity Fair famously portrayed him simply as “Canada.” On the cover of this 1897 Vanity Fair stands the Right Honourable Sir Wilfred Laurier. The “Men of the Day” column features Sir Wilfred Laurier and notes that Laurier is, “probably one of the most remarkable Colonials who came to England for the Diamond Jubilee”. Vincent Brooks, Day & Son was a major British lithographic firm most widely known for reproducing the weekly caricatures published in Vanity Fair magazine. The company was formed in 1867 when Vincent Brooks bought the name, good will and some of the property of Day & Son Ltd, which had gone into liquidation that year. The firm reproduced artwork and illustrations and went on to print many of the iconic London Underground posters of the twenties and thirties before being wound up in 1940.
