Market Reports Illustrated - "Tobacco - There was a sudden downward tendency!" A school Master spies three naughty boys grabbing a crafty smoke outside the school wall. They seem shocked at being found out, although two of the miscreants do not appear to have had the best reaction to their ingestion of the 'weed'! Date: 1903

Royal Wedding 1923 - Through Wisdom's Eyes
Interesting montage picture from The Bystander Royal Wedding Number of 1923 featuring the Duke of York, and his chosen bride, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in the eyes of an owl, symbolising the Duke's wise choice of bride. The caption reads, 'The whole nation sees eye to eye with HRH on his choice of bride - not only from the romantic point of view but also because of the wisdom of choosing a wife of British nationality'. Date: 1923
