The Jewelry of Lerroux

Origen: ABC Madrid June 28, 1914
Purpose: This Cartoon is a comment on Lerroux's flashy life style. It notes the value of his jewelry which is ironic because he began his career as a politician advocating radical measures to achieve workers rights.
Value: This shows us how some of the population in Madrid felt about Lerroux's politics and life style. 
Limitations: It is limited in that it only shows the view from Madrid. Lerroux was based in Barcelona and was advocating for workers rights there. People in Madrid would have been removed from him and were probably more likely to see him in a negative light.
