The Golliwogg's Bicycle Club - Surrounded by Cannibals

Surrounded by Cannibals! The book charts Golliwogg's adventures with his dutch peg doll friends Peggy, Weg, Meg, Sarah Jane and the dinky little Midget. This is the 2nd title in a 13-book series of Golliwogg books written by mother Bertha and illustrated by daughter Florence. The tale revolved around their travels around the globe on homemade bicycles (and the disasters that befall them!). These books gave the origination of the term golliwogg, now seen as highly un-PC and socially-unacceptable for reasons of supposed racial stereotyping and changing political attitudes, despite the innocent intent of the original creation, set in a time of wildly different social 'norms'. Date: 1896

Baptist chapel in Hartlepool hit by German east coast raid - WWI

The Baptist Chapel in Hartlepool (now situated in an area called The Headland and sometimes known as Old Hartlepool), located on the corner of Baptist Street and Regent Street (with the photographer standing on Prissick Street). The chapel was built in 1852 from stone quarried in The Headland and was demolished shortly after 1914 as it was deemed beyond repair, following the attack. A new chapel was built on the site which was named the Bombardment Memorial Church to remember those members of the church who died that day killed including the Sunday school secretary and seven of the children.

Warfare in the future - as predicted in 1932

An impression of what warfare might look like in 2032, as predicted by The Modern Boy magazine in 1932. It suggests that invading troops might attack via a shell, with bumpers to save the shock of landing. The accompanying caption also advises, 'The men will have to be strapped up in special spherical tanks inside the shells so that they will remain upright however much the shell twists about during its journey through the atmosphere. As shells usually become red-hot owing to the speed they travel, the fellows inside will also need a bit of ice-cream with 'em to prevent them from frizzling like bacon in a pan!' It concludes by saying, 'We certainly all ought to be glad this is only a forecast - at present.' Date: 1932
