The Deserted Village by H M Bateman Featured Print

The Deserted Village by H M Bateman

The Deserted Village by H M Bateman. Speaking recently before a distiguished society, an architect named a village which to his surprise, though near the City, did not seem to be known to the people of London. Fortunately the matter was reported in the Press and the error repaired. This illustration shows the said distinguised society with the Press in attendance. The second half of the illustration is of a quaint village filled with cars and omnibus vehicles as the gentle folk of London descend on the village. Date: 1927

The General Strike Featured Print

The General Strike

Cartoon sketch of a society lady helping out during the General Strike, accompanied by her pet poodle. In support of a strike by coal miners over the issue of threatened wage cuts, the Trades Union Congress called a General Strike in early May 1926. The strike only involved certain key industrial sectors (docks, electricity, gas, railways) but, in the face of well-organised government emergency measures and lack of real public support, it collapsed after nine days. The Sketch and other ILN magazines produced emergency numbers and reported on the organisation of canteens for transport workers, staffed by well-known society ladies.

'The Glorious Stand of the Royal West Kents in Trones Wood' Featured Print

'The Glorious Stand of the Royal West Kents in Trones Wood'

An illustration of a small group of the Royal West Kent regiment repelling German attacks in Trones Wood, France. The soldiers are reported to have been separated from their main force during a night attack on German lines in July 1916. They found themselves surrounded but resisted continuous attacks throughout the night until relief arrived early the next morning. The Illustrated London News at the time quoted a message from British Headquarters in France, which described the episode as 'reminiscent of Rorke's Drift.'
