Tiny passageway at the base of a column - Nara, Japan

Tiny passageway at the base of a column within the Todai-ji (Eastern Great Temple), a Buddhist temple complex located in the city of Nara, Japan. Because of the immense scale of this building, no single trees were large enough to form the massive columns. In one case, a section of a column was omitted so children or small persons may crawl through to be blessed with enlightenment in the next life. As adults, most cannot make a repeat passage. Date: circa 1910

A. D. Nineteen Fifty

Cartoon by Captain Bruce Bairnsfather, originally published in The Bystander magazine on 29 September 1915 and subsequently issued as part of his Fragments from France, and, as here, in postcard form. The picture shows two veteran Tommies with Methuselah-like beards, still manning the trenches thirty five years later, as a flurry of shells continue to fly overhead. The cartoon is a wry comment by Bairnsfather on the interminable stalemate of the conflict which many thought would be 'over by Christmas' in 1914. Reading a newspaper, one remarks to the other, "I see the War Babies' Battalion is a coming out." The original cartoon was entitled A. A. 19.. (?) whereas this postcard version offers 1950 as the precise year in the future. Date: 1915
