Primo de Rivera

Origen: El Imparcial, 26/09/1923

Purpose: to comment on the actions that Primo de Rivera took when he had power

Value: this cartoon was published about two weeks after Primo de Rivera declared himself as Dictator, because of the short time lapse, this cartoon truly shows the feelings of the people at that time.

Limitations: Both Spain and Mexico have a publication called "El Imparcial."  If this was from Mexico, that would limit the authenticity of the cartoon.
