Caricature of MP Vincent Pyke

Cartoonists and illustrators have a field day with distinctive physical characteristics of politicians. Weight, nose, hairstyle, beards or any particular style of dress are played up. Vincent Pyke, Member of Parliament for Otago in the 1880s, was always caricatured with an umbrella and a swollen red nose – a reference to his fondness for alcohol.
