Fabulous Arab Doorway - Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia

An absolutely fabulous Arab Doorway in the port town of Sidi Bou Said Tunisia, with a pair of knockers for the main decorated wooden doors (for ease of knocking when on a camel or on horseback?) and an additional knocker for the smaller inset door, being rapped by a visitor, keen to gain entrance. If the wonders beyond match the ornate glories of the door, then one can appreciate his keenness to gain admittance. Date: circa 1910s

Woman police officer W Gould at Woolwich, SE London

Woman police officer Winifred Gould (joined August 1931) photographed outside Woolwich Police Station, SE London. She is wearing the recently updated Stanley uniform -- a white shirt and tie were introduced, the jacket had four buttons and a matching material belt, the hat badge became smaller, the skirt became a little shorter, and shoes replaced boots (although in this photograph boots are worn). The overall effect was greater comfort, practicality and smartness. Date: circa 1931
