The Betting Book at White's club Featured Print

The Betting Book at White's club

A record of historic wagers, the famous betting book at White's club in 1751. The club was renowned for its high wagers between members, who would bet on anything from which lady of their acquaintance would be the first to give birth, to which raindrop on a window pane would reach the bottom first. This particular page records a number of wagers betting on the likelihood of other members remaining alive by a certain date in the future! Date: 1751

Brighton Motor Trials - Miss Dorothy Levitt Featured Print

Brighton Motor Trials - Miss Dorothy Levitt

Miss Dorothy Elizabeth Levitt (1882-1922) in her 80 hp Napier at the Brighton Motor (Speed) Trials, on 21st July 1905. Levitt was the first British woman racing driver, holder of the world's first water speed record, the women's world land speed record holder, and an author. A pioneer of female independence and female motoring, she also taught Queen Alexandra and the Royal Princesses how to drive. In her book 'The Woman and the Car: A Chatty Little Handbook for all Women who Motor or Who Want to Motor', suggested that all women should "carry a little hand-mirror in a convenient place when driving" so they may "hold the mirror aloft from time to time in order to see behind while driving in traffic", thus inventing the rear view mirror (before it was introduced by manufacturers in 1914) !! Date: 1905
