Cartoonist traces bankers' travails

Newspaper cartoonist Martha Richler opened an exhibition at the Guildhall this weekend with her collection of City Blues cartoons.

Richler, known as Marf, has used her pencil to chronicle the testing times of today's bankers, pilloried for their bonuses and viewed as negatively as the unions of the 1970s. Richler, from Britain, was an editorial cartoonist for the Evening Standard and drew a comic strip for the Daily Express.
