The Union Club in London, a fashionable spot for jovial debauchery, was established after the formation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on 1 January 1801. In the foreground members of the ministry raise glasses, shake hands and celebrate the successful union while a heated fight takes places in the background.
