Canberra: The First Class Lounge
Colour illustration depicting the First Class Lounge of 'Canberra', P&O's super-liner. The ship set off on her maiden voyage to Sydney, Australia in June 1961. Fitting with all modern conveniences, the ship was the biggest to be constructed by the Harland and Wolff shipyard since White Star's 'Britannic' in 1914. 'Canberra' was finally taken out of service in 1997.

Reprisal! by H M Bateman
Reprisal! by H M Bateman - humorous illustration of what can happen if a woman decides to wear trousers. In this scene the reprisal for the wife wearing trousers is that her husband has taken to wearing a dress. The stand off is shown in the expressions on their faces, pure defiance, a stale mate. They are both smoking angrily.
