The ocean liner Normandie by G. H. Davis Featured Print

The ocean liner Normandie by G. H. Davis

The new giant French ocean liner which made a record Atlantic crossing in four days, three hours: the "Normandie" - a diagrammatic drawing of her interior construction by G. H. Davis in the Illustrated London News. Also shown are comparisons with Big Ben and the National Gallery to get some sense of the ship's enormous size. Also the turbo-electric machinery which was, according to this illustration, 'sufficiently powerful to drive the whole of the underground railway system of London during rush hours.' In the top right are photographs showing the foldaway beds in first class cabins. Date: 1935

The Dreadnought Hoax, report in The Sketch Featured Print

The Dreadnought Hoax, report in The Sketch

Page from The Sketch magazine reporting on the Dreadnought hoax. The incident was a joke played by a group led by Horace de Vere Cole, including the writer Virginia Stephen (Woolf, seen far left in the bottom picture) who dressed up as the Emperor of Abyssinia and his party, and turned up out of the blue to inspect the battleship 'Dreadnought'. The group were 'received with the usual courtesies accorded to distinguished visitors, and were shown over the vessel.' The Dreadnought hoax was not the first time this group had played the joke. The top photograph shows the Abyssinian princes on an occasion when they visited the Mayor of Cambridge as the Sultan of Zanzibar and his suite. Date: 1910
