Grand Duke Michael of Russia (1861-1929), son of the Grand Duke Michael Nicholovitch (grand-uncle of Tsar Nicholas II) first cousin of the Duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (Grand Duchess Marie of Russia). He married morganatically Countess Torby and lived in Keele Hall, Staffordshire. During the first half of the Great War he lived at Kenwood House in Hampstead and was a prominent figure in London society. Pictured here with his wife and two of his children. From the date of the picture this is likely to be, on the right, Nadejda (Nada) Mikhailovna Mountbatten, Marchioness of Milford Haven (28 March 1896 22 January 1963) and his youngest child and only son, Count Michael de Torby. Date: 1903

Pompeii as it was and is by Matania Featured Print

Pompeii as it was and is by Matania

The last election in Pompeii, 2000 years ago, before the eruption of Vesuvius, as envisaged by the Sphere special artist and expert in historical reconstruction, Fortunino Matania. This image was based on discoveries made during recent excavations in 1924, which revealed something about how electoral candidates made themselves known to electors. in the vicinity of the house inhabited by the candidate inscriptions were painted on the walls recommending him for election. Very often a man was warranted for by other citizens who had already gained a sufficient reputation to enable them to wield influence. In the picture here, there is a novelty in Roman election appeals; in the inscription found near the Termopolio (tavern) at No. 2 of the Via dell Abbondanza, inscription reads as follows: C.Lollium Fuscum II VIR V.A.S.P.P Asellinas Rogant Nec Sin Zmyrina. In English, this appeal would read: Asellina, supported by Zmyrina, recommends the candidature of C. Lollium Fuscum for duumvir, having in charge the streets, the temples and public religious festivals. Who these two women were is unknown, but it is interesting that they should wield such influence. Date: 1924
