The Empty Chair by Lawson Wood
A moving illustration featured in the Tatler in December 1915 showing a woman, head bent in grief, sitting by a fireside, while an empty chair beside her speaks volumes about the person who is missing - perhaps a husband or son, away fighting (or a casualty of?) during World War One. An unusually serious subject for the artist Lawson Wood, better known for his humorous illustrations featuring Granpop, a wily orang utan. Date: 1915

Roofless cabin during evictions in Ireland
Rear view of a couple of gentlemen and two grieving women near the cabin of Pat MacNamara which has been 'tumbled' by levellers. This scene of eviction and desolation in the village of Clear was common in Ireland where potato rot ruined the livelihood of farmers who subsequently could not pay their rent. The consequence was having the roof of one's dwelling 'tumbled' to render it inhabitable which made ghost towns of many former communities.
