Comparison of British & German skull shapes, WW1

Long-head versus short-head: Opposite types of humanity which are fighting for opposite ideals. A diagram to demonstrate the inherent differences in skull shapes between the British and German people, contrasting the dolichocephalic, long-headed, Briton, with the brachycephalic, or short-headed, Teuton. The diagram illustrated an article in The Graphic by Dr Arthur Keith, which claimed that the physiognomy of the two races was inherently different, a theory expounded during the First World War. Date: 1915

Following in father's footsteps by George Studdy

Following in father's footsteps -- the Bonzolines take after their father by getting into a complete mess with ink and paint, which Bonzo finds hilarious. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 9 May 1923
