A Garden Guide - Extracting a Weed from a Lawn Featured Print

A Garden Guide - Extracting a Weed from a Lawn

Illustration by William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) showing a typically convoluted method of weeding a garden lawn. A man is hosted by ropes supported by a teepee configuration of poles worked by onlookers. He holds a corkscrew type instrument in his hand, in order to extract a single weed. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles during his lifetime. His weekly drawings featuring mind-boggling contraptions and designs were immensely popular.

Royal Victoria Hospital Farm Colony, Polton, Scotland

Patients plough the land and plant seed potatoes at the Farm Colony (founded in 1910) at The Royal Victoria Hospital, founded in 1894. Together with the Dispensary these formed the nucleus of the Edinburgh Scheme for combating tuberculosis. In 1914, the Dispensary, Hospital and Farm Colony were given to the City of Edinburgh and the Royal Victoria Tuberculosis Trust was founded. These came under the management of the Royal Victoria and Associated Hospitals NHS Trust in 1948, and the North Lothian District of Lothian Health Board in 1974. Date: circa 1910
