'The white elephant of Manchester has just come to town'
This cartoon, taken from the Commercial Union staff annual of 1911, was originally included in the 1900 edition, but 'owing to the unfortunate lapse of memory on the part of one of the Staff' was lost on the train. Several cartoons from the volume were recovered when, in 1907, an example was spotted in the window of a small shop near Paddington Station, London, and subsequently purchased for this jubilee edition. The cartoon itself references the the acquisition of Palatine Insurance in 1900.
