Possession is nine points of the law by Louis Wain

Illustration by Louis Wain showing a cat occupying a cast-off saucepan or cooking pot during snowy weather. A selection of birds, including a magpie and a blue tit bemusedly face the cat. Wain was able to turn his hand to drawing a wide variety of animals prior to the fame he achieved with his feline creations. Sadly his growing obsession with cats turned to insanity and he died penniless in a mental asylum in 1939.

Wain testifies that the tonic, '...is a good pick-me-up, improves one's appetite and possesses very striking invigorating properties'. Wain was able to turn his hand to drawing a wide variety of animals prior to the fame he achieved with his feline creations. Sadly his growing obsession with cats turned to insanity and he died penniless in a mental asylum in 1939.

Bobby Leach and his barrel - Niagara Falls

British former stuntman Bobby Leach (1858 - 1926) and his barrel, in which he survived passage over Niagara Falls, Canada, at severe detriment to his future health! He was the second person to go over the falls in a barrel in July, 1911. This photographic montage appears to pre-date the attempt as the 'barrel' is un-dented and Mr Leach appears far too healthy!
