Bonzo gets that spring feeling by George Studdy
Bonzo gets that spring feeling when confronted by a bull in a field. Chee-Kee the Pekingese escapes the easy way by slipping under the five-bar gate rather than being head-butted over it. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 14 March 1923

Troops departing from Euston Station, London, to Manchester and other industrial districts of Lancashire to supress the riots and strikes there. An armed police escort was necessary as hostile crowds gathered and attempted to force their way into the railway yard. Batons, fists and swords are used to control the mob; in the foreground a woman clutching a baby is pushed to the ground by a policeman.
