Officer prisoners of war in Germany - Fancy Dress ball

A fancy dress ball at Furstenberg in Mecklenburg which officer prisoners of war held as christmas entertainment in December 1916. The principal performers were British and Russian officers and among the costumes seen (remarkable considering the disadvantageous circumstances under which the organisers worked) are a pierrot, Napoleon, several clowns and a large number of ladies! Date: 1917

Roman Chariot Races at the British Empire Exhibition

The Great Circus at Wembley - The Thrilling Roman Chariot Races at Wembley Stadium. A new thrill for visitors to the British Empire Exhibition, based on the races in the famous Circus Maximus in Rome at the time of the emperor. The races, organised by Messrs Ginnett and Robertson, comprised 400-500 performers taking part in each of two daily performances of this mammoth circus in the stadium. Depicted by Fortunino Matania, special artist for The Sphere who drew many historical reconstructions (even though this is a contemporary illustration of an actual historical reconstruction!). Date: 1925
