By William Powell Frith
This is the last of five pictures in 'The Race for Wealth' series depicting the rise and fall of a crooked financier. The scene is set in Millbank Prison, London, which Frith photographed with permission from the Governor, Captain Talbot Harvey. The prison costumes were painted from one borrowed for the purpose.
