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

Two weapons automatic rifle & German's automatic pistol 1917

The comparison of the automatic rifle and German's automatic pistol shown here in this diagram. The length of the automatic rifle and the narrowness of the trenches greatly hinder the usefulness in hand to hand work, the pistol being a superior weapon. This applied especially to the automatic pistol - as distinguised from the revolver - on account of its greater accuracy and repidity of fire, together with the lesser labour involved, the rifle needing cartridge magazines that could be emptied from the shoulder. The revolver's hand turned barrel being omitted and the shock of discharge reduced to a minimum. Date: 1917

Advert for Wulfing's Formamint tablets 1913

'Why you catch sore throats and how to cure and prevent it'. Germs from a public telephone in constant use, and railway carriages are favourite breeding grounds. An experiment on two glass plates were covered with a substance on which germs thrive, one plate being also treated with Formamint. The plate without Formamint showed an abundant growth of disease germs. You can prevent sore throats by sucking Formamint tablets. This has been proved beyond doubt - not alone by scientific tests. Date: 1913
