This photograph was published in 1877 in Men of Mark, a part-work featuring portraits of eminent public figures. The inclusion of Lubbock in the volume attests to his celebrity and status within Victorian society. The accompanying biography lists in equal measure, his substantial achievements in science, politics and commerce. By the mid -1870s he had become a household name, the introduction of bank holidays being so popular they were popularly known as 'St Lubbock's Days'.
