Origen: ABC (Madrid) 15/04/1931
Purpose: This cartoon is commenting on the worries of the upper classes that the transition to a republic will not be smooth and tranquil but instead will cause panic. This was published one day after the king fled the country and the republic began so it was a time of uncertainty.
Limitations: It appears to represent the views of wealthy conservatives and does not provide the perspective of liberals in favor of a republic.
Value: This is valuable to us because it shows the resistance of the traditionally powerful people in Spain and their resentment of the new changes.
