Luddites smash weaving machinery

Luddites smash weaving machinery in a Nottingham textile factory. The Luddites were a movement of radical group of English textile workers and weavers in the early 19th century who destroyed weaving machinery as a form of protest. The group was protesting the use of machinery in a "fraudulent and deceitful manner" to get around standard labour practices. The group feared time spent learning the skills of their craft would go to waste as machines would replace their role in the industry. in more recent times, the term Neo-Luddism has emerged to describe opposition to many forms of technology. Date: circa 1812

Caricature of Prince Leopold in Parliament

Caricature of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany (1853-1884), youngest son of Queen Victoria -- The Royal Hat-Trick. A comment on a parliamentary debate about granting more money to Prince Leopold (and to his bride) on the event of their marriage. The Prince was not present in person, but some MPs, including the radical Liberal MP John Bright (right), showed disrespect by not removing their hats while a royal person was the subject of debate. There was some opposition to granting the Prince more money, but the vote was easily carried in his favour.
1882
