Card Game - The Game of Suffragette

The 'Game of Suffragette' was devised and produced by the Kensington branch of the Women's Social & Political Union. It was announced in the November 1907 issue of the Union's publication, 'Votes for Women'. 'Although it may be recommended as a novel form of propaganda, let it not be thought that there is no fun in it.' The game consisted of sets of cards including 'Broken Promises', 'The Career of the Suffragettes', 'Pie Crust Principles' and 'The Sensational Press'. There are portrait cards and others with line illustrations, each has the 'Haunted House' image, by David Wilson on the reverse. David Wilson, (1873-1935) produced the dark and brooding image of the woman a top the Houses of Parliament for the Daily Chronicle in April 1907. It was then used as the front cover illustration for the first issue of 'Votes for Women' in October 1907. Also includes a copy of the original rules. Date: 1907

British Sentry keeping watch on Nijmegen Bridge; Second Worl

Photograph showing aan Irish Guardsman keeping watch on the Bridge at Nijmegen, September 1944. On 17th September 1944 Operation 'Market Garden' was put into action; a bold plan devised by Field-Marshal Montgomery to drop thousands of airborne troops into Holland to capture an invasion route into Germany. The British First Airborne, American 81st and 101st Divisions took part in the plan, which was ultimately unsuccessful. This photographed was staged (for the Illustrated London News) and the soldier is James Lawler of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. The sentry box was previously manned by Germans and a picture of the Fuhrer can be seen, still pinned to the side of the wooden position. Apparently the ILN correspondent had to be encouraged to make the high ascent to the box by ladder as he was scared of heights!!
