Cartoon impression of the Russo-Japanese War 3 of 5

Card 3 of 5 - 'The Wrestlers'. A cartoon interpretation of the Russo-Japanese war, acted out by the principal ruling individuals from the International Community. The Russo-Japanese War was a conflict that grew out of the rival imperialist ambitions of the Russian Empire and the Empire of Japan over Manchuria and Korea. The major theatres of operations were Southern Manchuria, specifically the area around the Liaodong Peninsula and Mukden, and the seas around Korea, Japan, and the Yellow Sea. Japan inflicted a series of stunning defeats on the Russian Navy, principally at Tsushima in May 1905. In this third card, Tsar Nicholas II and the Japanese Emperor wrestle with each other whilst the International community watches on, forming up behind the side they are supporting.

Suffragettes capture The Monument, London

Crowds gathered to witness the capture of the Monument by two suffragettes, Miss Ethel Spark and Mrs Gertrude Shaw - 18th April, 1913. The two Suffragettes managed to slip unnoticed into the Monument, trap the attendants in their office and climb the 311 steps to the top of the column, whereupon they unfurled a purple, white and green flag of the Womens Social and Political Union and tied a banner reading Death or Victory to the railings. They then released hundreds of propaganda flyers onto the street below. Examination of the individuals making up the crowd show them to be primarily working men including a number of Billingsgate Market fish porters (identified by their tarred leather hats). Date: 1913
