Comparison of British & German skull shapes, WW1 Featured Print

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

Eiffel Tower in comparison to other buildings, 1889 Featured Print

Eiffel Tower in comparison to other buildings, 1889

A diagram showing how much higher the Eiffel Tower was in comparison to other world-famous tall buildings when it was constructed in 1889. Even the spires of Cologne and Old St. Paul's cathedral are dwarfed by its immense height which was almost 1000 feet. Inset is a portrait of its creator, French engineer, Gustave Eiffel. The Eiffel Tower was built as a centrepiece to the Paris International Exhibition. Despite many detractors initially, the building was a huge success and is today an iconic symbol of Paris and France. Date: 1889

Two weapons automatic rifle & Germans automatic pistol 1917 Featured Print

Two weapons automatic rifle & Germans 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
