Switzerland - Unterseen Featured Print

Switzerland - Unterseen

Switzerland - the old wooden buildings in the centre of Unterseen. The city was founded on July 13, 1279, when King Rudolf I von Habsburg granted Baron Berchtold III of Eschenbach-Oberhofen permission to build a stronghold between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. After the establishment of the Helvetic Republic, Unterseen became a center of resistance against the reestablished Bern feudalism.

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve Featured Print

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve

Ethel Le Neve, Dr Crippen's mistress. Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship, the 'Montrose', on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name.

Mairi Chisholm reading in the cellar at Pervyse

Mairi Lambert Gooden-Chisholm of Chisholm, better known as Mairi Chisholm (1895-1981), Scottish nurse and ambulance driver during World War I pictured in silhouette, taking a rare, quiet moment to read in the cellar at Pervyse. Together with Elsie Knocker (known as Baroness de T'Serclaes after her second marriage to a Belgian in 1916), also a nurse and ambulance driver the pair were awarded the Military Medal for their bravery and work with the wounded on the Western Front in Belgium. The pair initially joined the Voluntary Emergency Corps but then later set up their own first aid dressing station just 100 yards from the trenches at Pervyse, north of Ypres. Elsie concentrated on providing medical attention while Mairi transported injured soldiers to the base hospital fifteen miles away, often in highly dangerous conditions. Their bravery attracted journalists and photographers and they became some of the most photographed women of the war. Date: 1917
