Taxes!', Great Britain, circa 1800. The cartoon shows a figure, surrounded by children, calling down from an upstairs window, 'Taxes! Taxes! Taxes! Why how am I to get money to pay them all? I shall very soon have neither house nor hole to put my head in' with the tax man replying, 'A house to put your head in? Why what the devil should you want with a house? Haven't you got a first floor room to live in? And if that is too dear can't you move into the garret or get into the cellar? Taxes must be had Johnny, come down with your cashit's all for the good of your dear country'. By James Gillray. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
