No News to Speak Of by David Wright
No News to Speak Of by David Wright featuring a glamorous, half-dressed woman lounging on a boudoir-style chair as she pens a letter. Wright produced a series of over 160 illustrations or 'pin-ups' for 'The Sketch' during the 1940's. David Wright's 'Lovelies' proved hugely popular and adorned practically every military mess, bunker, dormitory or club room in the country during World War II.

Heligoland - The New Port
Heligoland - The New Port. A small German archipelago in the North Sea. Formerly Danish and British possessions, the islands (population 1,650) are located in the Heligoland Bight (part of the German Bight) in the southeastern corner of the North Sea. In addition to German, the local population, who are ethnic Frisians, speak the Heligolandic dialect of the North Frisian language called Halunder. Heligoland was formerly called Heyligeland, or 'holy land', possibly due to the island's long association with the god Forseti.
