Donoghue v Stevenson (Mounted Print)
This print records one of the most famous cases in English common law. The facts (as if you need any reminding) were as follows:
One Sunday in August 1928 Mrs May Donoghue ordered an ice cream float from a Paisley cafe. The proprietor brought the ice-cream in a tumbler and poured some 'D. Stevenson' ginger beer over it. Mrs D. took a drink and found the decomposed remains of a snail in the ginger beer. Suffering from severe gastro-enteritis, she issued a writ against David Stevenson, claiming £500 in damages. The case reached the House of Lords where the historic decision was made in Mrs D's favour.
This print shows a Stevenson's Ginger Beer bottle with a snail on top. Below it appears Lord Atkinson's "good neighbour" principle which has underpinned the law of negligence ever since.
The print size is 11" x 8", but once framed and mounted, the picture is 15" x 12".
