Queen Charlottes Ball 1939

Debutantes curtsy as H.H Princess Helena Victoria cuts a giant birthday cake at Queen Charlotte's Ball at Grosvenor House. The ball was one of the most important dates in the social calendar, and to be chosen as a Maid of Honour...is almost essential to a young lady's first season success'. The Ball was held in aid of Queen Charlotte's maternity hospital, England's biggest in the 1930's. Date: 24th May 1939

Irene - a play by Samuel Johnson Featured Print

Irene - a play by Samuel Johnson

Irene is a Neoclassical tragedy written between 1726 and 1749 by Samuel Johnson. Johnson's main source for the story of Irene was Richard Knolles's Generall Historie of the Turkes (1603). In Knolles's work, the Sultan Mahomet conquers Constantinople in 1453 and captures a Greek Christian named Irene. He decides to take her as his mistress, and while pursuing her romantically he ignores his duties as a monarch. Soon, the kingdom is falling apart from neglect and the subjects begin to riot, so Mahomet kills Irene to prove his dedication to his people (as depicted here). Date: circa 1730
