Sketches of Cricket in India, 1890

A series of sketches by an English Cavalry Officer of a game of cricket played between an Indian College and British Officers, in India, 1890. The correspondent who sent in the account of this match wished to remain anonymous and gave little in the way of details about the match. Indeed the Indian College was given the pseudonym 'The Progress College of Arts and Sciences' and the location was not disclosed. The Illustrated London News editor who wrote the original caption said there was a 'touch of caricature' in their depiction of the Indian players, but hoped 'the joke would be taken in a good-humoured spirit, as it is meant'.

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
