An energetic man starts the day in his dressing gown by diving off the mantelpiece of his living room, using his wife's head as a springboard and landing perfectly at the breakfast table where a cup of tea is waiting.

Bonzo does the dirty work! by George Studdy
Bonzo does the dirty work! He does some parlour tricks with a sugar cube, but the Pekingese Chee-Kee gets the reward, and runs off with the cube. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Credit should read: Estate of George Studdy/Gresham Marketing Ltd./ILN/Mary Evans Date: 1923
