Card Game - The Game of Suffragette Featured Print

Card Game - The Game of Suffragette

The Game of Suffragette was devised and produced by the Kensington branch of the Women's Social & Political Union. It was announced in the November 1907 issue of the Union's publication, Votes for Women'. Although it may be recommended as a novel form of propaganda, let it not be thought that there is no fun in it. The game consisted of sets of cards including Broken Promises, The Career of the Suffragettes, Pie Crust Principles and The Sensational Press'. There are portrait cards and others with line illustrations, each has the Haunted House image, by David Wilson on the reverse. David Wilson, (1873-1935) produced the dark and brooding image of the woman a top the Houses of Parliament for the Daily Chronicle in April 1907. It was then used as the front cover illustration for the first issue of Votes for Women in October 1907. Also includes a copy of the original rules. Date: 1907

Captain Percy Scott

Captain Percy Scott. Part of Box 104 Boswell collection.Sir Percy Moreton Scott, 1st Baronet KCB KCVO LL.D (10 July 1853 18 October 1924) was a British Royal Navy officer and a pioneer in modern naval gunnery. During his career he proved to be an engineer and problem solver of some considerable foresight, ingenuity and tenacity. He did not, however, endear himself to the Navy establishment for his regular outspoken criticism of the Navy's conservatism and resistance to change and this undoubtedly slowed the acceptance of his most important ideas, notably the introduction of directed firing. In spite of this, his vision proved correct most of the time and he rose to the rank of admiral and amongst other honours was made baronet, a hereditary title. Date: circa 1900s
