The Golliwogg's Bicycle Club - Surrounded by Cannibals

Surrounded by Cannibals! The book charts Golliwogg's adventures with his dutch peg doll friends Peggy, Weg, Meg, Sarah Jane and the dinky little Midget. This is the 2nd title in a 13-book series of Golliwogg books written by mother Bertha and illustrated by daughter Florence. The tale revolved around their travels around the globe on homemade bicycles (and the disasters that befall them!). These books gave the origination of the term golliwogg, now seen as highly un-PC and socially-unacceptable for reasons of supposed racial stereotyping and changing political attitudes, despite the innocent intent of the original creation, set in a time of wildly different social 'norms'. Date: 1896

Yamagata Aritomo - inspection tour to Mukden, Manchuria

Two admirals and six generals surrounding Duke Yamagata Aritomo (1838-1922) ( also known as Yamagata Kyosuke, a Japanese field marshal, twice-elected Prime Minister of Japan, and one of the leaders of the Meiji oligarchy) on his inspection tour to Mukden, Manchuria (from left to right: Kuroki Tamemoto, Commander of 1st Army, Nozu Michitsura, Commander of 4th Army, Yamagata Aritomo, General Chief of Staff, Oyama Iwao, Oku Yasukata, Commander of 2nd Army, Nogi Maresuke, Commander of 3rd Army, Kodama Gentaro, Manchurian Army General Chief of Staff, Kawamura Kageaki, Yalu River Army Commander) - photograph taken on 26 July 1905. Japanese economic presence and political interest in Manchuria (as evident here) had been growing ever since the end of the Russo-Japanese War (19041905). Following this event (pictured) The Treaty of Portsmouth that ended the war granted Japan the lease of the South Manchuria Railway branch (from Changchun to Lushun) of the China Far East Railway. Date: 1905
