domestic servant | working conditions
This editorial cartoon depicts a black coachman waiting outside in the cold for his mistress. He asks a young boy to tell his mistress that the chimney is on fire so she will come out and they can go home. The cartoon is titled "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" to show how domestic servants were generally treated poorly by their employers and how the living and work conditions of domestic servants were not a matter of serious concern for many employers.
