Umpire at a Cricket Match, c.1905
Illustration of a rather elderly figure umpiring a cricket match, which came with the following caption: 'Batsman (taking guard): 'What guard is that, umpire?' Rustic Umpire: 'Yer can't better it, sur.' Batsman: 'But what is it?' Rustic Umpire: 'Yer can't better it, sur.' Batsman (getting irate): 'But what is it. Centre, middle and leg, or what?' Rustic Umpire: 'Well, I be blessed if I knows'.

Scene from Shakespeare's Cymbeline
A scene from shakespeare's Cymbeline, in which Imogen, dressed as a boy, has found a hut in the forest and, being hungry, has eaten some food. The owners of the hut, a man and two boys, have just returned, and are surprised to see her there. Little do they know that she and the boys are related, but for that we will have to wait for the final recognition scene.
