Rejected by the inventions board

"Rejected by the inventions board. VII -The Gallipoli Shell-Diverter for returning the Enemy's Fire" There were other theatres of war besides he Western Front, and after the disastrous landings at Gallipoli off the Dardanelles strait, the soldiers were force to dig trenches there too. Blistering heat in the summer led to disease, and dysentery killed more men than did bullets. Heath Robinson remembered the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli in his "Rejected by the Inventions Board" series, although this time his contraptions are scattering Turkish soldiers wearing fez hats, rather than Germans in their Pickelhaube helmets. Date: 1916

Enemy aeroplanes attack British steamer by G. H. Davis

Enemy aeroplanes attacking a British steamer. Bombs and bullets from above -- the Avocet attacked by three German planes during the First World War. The steamship was on its way from Rotterdam to Manchester. All the bombs dropped missed their target, and the ship's crew fired rifles at their attackers. The planes eventually turned away.

The Golliwogg's Bicycle Club - Lion scared away Featured Print

The Golliwogg's Bicycle Club - Lion scared away

Lion scared away by Golliwogg who fires a pistol to ward him off. The book charts Golliwogg's adventures with his dutch peg doll friends Peggy, Weg, Meg, Sarah Jane and the dinky little Midget. This is the 2nd title in a 13-book series of Golliwogg books written by mother Bertha and illustrated by daughter Florence. The tale revolved around their travels around the globe on homemade bicycles (and the disasters that befall them!). These books gave the origination of the term golliwogg, now seen as highly un-PC and socially-unacceptable for reasons of supposed racial stereotyping and changing political attitudes, despite the innocent intent of the original creation, set in a time of wildly different social 'norms'. Date: 1896
