The Eighth Wonder! by H M Bateman

The Eighth Wonder! by H M Bateman, is an illustration of the member of the RAC who actually OWNS a car. A large group of men socialising in a room stand apart from one man who is centre of the picture, smoking a cigar and wearing a monocle. The man who OWNS a car has an air of superiority and the other men look on with humorous awe. Date: 1922

Christmas Feasting in the 14th century

Artist's impression of a banquet of the 14th century. The tables were narrow and movable, consisting of boards resting on trestles. The host occupied the seat of honour while the rest of the company sat on benches. At each place were set a spoon and a roll of bread. Forks did not come into general use till the 16th century. People at with the fingers, or with a private knife carried in a sheath at a belt. Soup was served in porringers, one between two guests who dipped spoons in alternately. Wooden platters, round (or more often) square, did duty for plates. On each platter was a pile of stale bread for absorbing gravy. Drinking vessels were mostly glass but silver gilt goblets were used by persons of consequence. Pages waiting at table took the guests' cups to the butler to be replenished. Date: 24 November 1930

Miss Margaret Whigham seeks sylvan solitude

Exhausted from her relentless socialising (and appearances in society magazines like The Bystander!), Miss Margaret Whigham (1912-1993), later Mrs Charles Sweeny, then Duchess of Argyll, seeks some peace and quiet away from the photographer's lens at her parents' home in Ascot. Photograph shows her posed next to swans on a pond, while the inset photographs shows her in a more familiar environment, with th Hon. Max Aitken, son of Lord Beaverbrook at the Carlton, and with Eddie Tatham, sometime contributor to the Bystander, at the Cafe de Paris. It's a hard life. Date: 1932
