Portrait of Ethel Le Neve Featured Print

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve

Ethel Le Neve, Dr Crippen's mistress. Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship, the 'Montrose', on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name.

Dogs as Riffians during Melillan Campaign

During the Mellilan campaign in Morocco where Spanish troops fought against local Riffian forces, the Riffians dressed up dogs in turbans and burnous and sent them out from point to point in front of the Spanish soldiers. From a distance, the dogs looked very like a man crawling along the ground and tended to draw fire during which time, the Riffians were able to take advantage and shoot at the Spanish. Scenes witnessed by the famous dog trainer Major Edwin Richardson who travelled to the seat of war with an ambulance dog. He described what he had seen to the ILN special artist, H. W. Koekkoek.

Suffragette Jessie Kennedy as a telegraph boy

Miss Jessie Kennedy, a suffragette, as a telegraph boy, in the dress in which she sought to gain admission to the Albert Hall to disrupt a Liberal party meeting at which Asquith was speaking. She was caught by a policeman on duty who apparently was suspicious after noticing her 'shapely hands, her face and the angle of her cap.' The Sketch magazine reports with satisfaction that, 'a thorough search of the great building caused a number of enthusiastic advocates of "Votes for Women" to be dragged into the light of day...'
