Fanny and Dora Watson, Kent/178

Fanny (right) and Dora (left) Watson. Taken at the Houghton photographic studio. The Watson Fanny Watson is wearing three War Service Bar stripes on her left arm. This indicates that the photograph was taken no earlier than November 1917. The Bar could be earned by serving an aggregate of 2, 688 hours in the first year (i.e. less than 13 months) and 2, 496 hours in subsequent years but could not be obtained prior to the thirteen or twelve month period being up. Fanny & Dora Watson in 1911 lived with their mother Catherine in Birchington and had private income. Late in 1917 Dora Watson married and became Mrs D. Danielson. She continued to work at Quex Park VAD Hospital. Fanny Watson worked a total of 10, 898 hours and Dora Danielson worked 10, 249 hours during their service at the hospital. The Quex Park VAD Hospital opened on 15 October 1914 and closed on 31 January 1919. The hospital was run by Kent/178, the Birchington Detachment. The Commandant was Hannah Powell-Cotton (1881-1964), wife of Major Percy HG Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) of Quex Park, founder of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Date: circa 1918

Boy with pet dog

Boy with Dog. Ceruti, Giacomo 1698-1767. Born in Milan, Ceruti trained there and absorbed the north Italian interest in still-life painting associated with the work of Caravaggio. In northern Italy during the eighteenth century a fashion developed for paintings of peasants and beggars. Ceruti developed this genre by incorporating still-life details of game and vegetables and giving his peasants a new sense of dramatic solemnity. His work earned him the nick-name ?il pitocchetto? the painter of beggars. In 1721 Ceruti moved to Brescia where he produced an important early series of beggar and pilgrim scenes depicting the ragged poor that were quite unlike any previous representations of the genre. Ceruti?s Brescian beggar scenes are large in scale and devoid of the comic and anecdotal qualities usually associated with this style of painting

A Devonshire lace-maker Featured Print

A Devonshire lace-maker

Lace-making was a typical cottage industry and could be carried out independently by women in their homes. The woman in the picture sits by the hearth in a cottage with a bolster-style pillow firmly stuffed with straw on her lap. She is interweaving bobbins in order to produce the lace. Lace-makers earned comparatively good wages, but only by working up to twelve hours a day, and consequently suffering poor health
