Lawson Wood is one of the most unusual artists of the golden age of magazine illustration, largely because of the subject he chose to illustrate. ‘First Police Trap’ depicts a prehistoric scene of stone-age policeman waiting patiently with rocks and a tree in hand for the criminals to come into their trap so they can capture them. Lawson was especially noted for his "prehistoric" sharp humour that paired stone age humans with caricatures of dinosaurs.Lawson’s humorous style and beautifully coloured work is technically superb and therefore appeals to both adults and children.
