Sphere cover - East Coast bombardments, Hartlepool chapel

The bombardment of the East Coast - the scene outside a Hartlepool Baptist Chapel. Scene painted by Fortunino Matania based on a sketch by fellow Sphere artist, G. H. Davis, showing the shelling of Hartlepool by German battle cruisers on the morning of 16 December 1914. The caption gives the following description: A shell coming from the sea hit the Baptist Chapel, smashing in a large portion of the upper part of the building; it then went clean through the building, hurtling into the roadway, from which it rebounded and crashed through the first-floor bedroom of the house, seen on the extreme right, killing a woman. As the shell hit the chapel, causing a haze of dust, men and women came rushing from all the houses around. One woman was struck down and fell forwards on to the road; a Territorial who rushed to her assistance had his rifle blown out of his hand. The scene outside the bombarded chapel was piteous in the extreme; all the windows were broken; the walls were bespattered with plaster, and masses of concrete were piled up within the railings of the chapel. Date: 1914

Where Did That One Go To? by Bruce Bairnsfather

The very first cartoon published in The Bystander by Bruce Bairnsfather (later Captain) of the 1st Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment. The cartoon was drawn from experience after the cottage in which he was sheltering near St. Yvon was shelled. The picture was accompanied by the explanatory caption; 'I have drawn it as well as I can under somewhat difficult circumstances, and, I may say, from first-hand impressions.' The picture was the first of hundreds Bairnsfather would produce for The Bystander. Many of them would later be reproduced in special portfolios called Fragments from France as well as on a vast range of merchandise. Date: 1915

Palace of Necessidades, Lisbon and King Manuel II

Palace of Necessidades (Palacio das Necessidades) in the Largo do Rilvas, a public square in Lisbon, Portugal. On 5th October 1910, during the Republican Revolution, the palace, because it was the official residence of the King, Manuel II (pictured in the inset), was shelled by the cruiser Adamastor, one of the ships stationed in the Tagus River. The salvoes caused some damage to the Palace, and one of the bomblets even reached the king's private quarters on the first floor. Date: circa 1910
