Thurstons Billiards House, Leicester Square - Bombed - 1940

The bombed out remains of Thurston's Billiard House on Leicester Square during the Blitz on London, WWII. The corner building was hit by a parachute mine at 3:30am on 16th October 1940. One of the player name plates being examined is that of the legendary British professional snooker and English billiards player Joe Davis (1901-1978). Thurstons was completely destroyed and several taxis parked outside were wrecked. Heavy debris fell into Panton Street, blocking it. Other name plates of top Billards players (pictured here) include: Horace Lindrum, Melbourne Inman, Walter Donaldson, Fred Davis and Sidney Smith. Date: 1940

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
