German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1 Featured Print

German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1

A huge German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens on 8th August 1918 became a source of some Allied controversy. The Australian 31st Battalion effected its capture, but, in the wake of the continued Allied advance, the gun received a large painted inscription stating that the gun had been captured by the British 4th Army (see picture) of which the ANZAC Corps was a component. A thorough investigation was made of the circumstances of the gun's capture - an insightful example of the contested nature of war material involving notions of identity and ownership - before it was finally transported to Australia for public display (AWM Archive). The gun was originally intended for naval use, mounted in the battleship SMS Hessen. Date: 1918

Sizing up at the Miss California Beauty Contest Featured Print

Sizing up at the Miss California Beauty Contest

Judges at the Miss California beauty contest held at Venice, California in the summer of 1939, using a scientific device to assist them in their decision. Competitors were asked to step in front a large sheet of plate glass marked out with complete measurement lines so that it was possible to check up their proportions and compare them with the established canons for perfect beauty. Miss Mary Jane Pease is the highly attractive candidate who is seen in the photograph. Date: 1939
