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

Superintendent Stanley and three women police officers Featured Print

Superintendent Stanley and three women police officers

Superintendent Sophia Stanley (served 1918-1922, seated), the first Superintendent of Women Police, and three women police officers (left to right: Elinor J Robertson, served 1919-1922, Charlotte Grace Dixon, later Mrs Anderson, served 1920-1924, and Sergeant Violet Butcher), wearing the new Stanley Uniform, introduced in 1919. The tunic was single-breasted with six metal buttons down the front and a snake clasp belt. The skirt was mid-calf length. Black woollen stockings were worn, and boots with a one-inch heel. The helmet was made of cork and hard felt. Although Harrods fitted and made the uniform, the material was coarse and uncomfortable. In 1926 changes were made to make it more comfortable and practical. Date: circa 1920
