Le Ciel - Paris Cabaret Nightclub - Adoration of golden pig

Le Ciel - Montmartre, Paris Cabaret Nightclub. The Cabaret du Ciel (Cabaret of Heaven) was an early version of modern theme restaurants, with a theme centered around celestial concepts connected to the afterlife in Paradise. Inside the restaurant, beer was served, and the customers were greeted by acts such as angels playing music, St. Peter sprinkling holy water from the heavens, as well as reenactments of scenes related to Dante's Inferno. Here showgirls surround a golden pig in full-body stockings and festoon this 'idol' with flower garlands. The patrons formed a line, as they approached the statue of the animal, bowing and making the sign of the cross before it. Date: circa 1905

Decorated tram in Tokyo, Japan - Anglo-Japanese Alliance

A decorated tram in Tokyo - part of the celebrations following the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902 and to welcome the arrival of the British Naval contingent to the city. The Alliance was to run for five years before being renewed, was primarily directed against the potential shared menace posed, it was believed, by France and (most probably) Russia in the Far East. The alliance obligated either power to remain neutral if one or other found itself at war. However, should either power be obliged to fight a war against two or more powers, the other signatory was obliged to provide military aid. Date: 1902
