'An illustration of a young man who has been captured by the 'press gang', who sought out able-bodied men to serve with the Royal Navy during times of war. He is seen here incarcerated on a 'reception ship', being taken out to a ship in a rowing boat and pleading with the ship's captain while the crew stands around watching. From 'The British Workman', a newspaper aimed at 'The British Workman and Friend of the Sons of Toil' with the aim of promoting 'the health, wealth and happiness of the working classes'. It was published from 1855-1892 by Messrs. Partridge & Co, A.W. Bennett and W. Tweedie, of London.'
