Samuel Coleridge Taylor - Classical Composer

Samuel Coleridge Taylor (1875-1912) - Classical Composer. Professor at the Crystal Palace School of Music and conducted the orchestra at the Croydon Conservatoire. After Coleridge-Taylor's death in 1912, musicians were concerned that he and his family had received no royalties from what was one of the most successful and popular works written in the previous 50 years. His case contributed to their formation of the Performing Rights Society, an effort to gain revenues for musicians through performance as well as publication and distribution of music Date: circa 1906

Skull and Crossbones - Inverted Featured Print

Skull and Crossbones - Inverted

The Jolly Roger is the name given to any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates. The flag most usually identified as the Jolly Roger today is the skull and crossbones, being a flag consisting of a skull above two long bones set in an x-mark arrangement. This design was used by four pirates, captains Edward England, John Taylor, Sam Bellamy and John Martel.Despite its appearance in popular culture, plain black flags were often employed by most pirates in the 17th-18th century. Historically, the flag was flown to frighten pirates victims into surrendering without a fight, since it conveyed the message that the attackers were outlaws who would not consider themselves bound by the usual rules of engagement and might, therefore, slaughter those they defeated

Clancarty at the Lyric Theatre, 1907 Featured Print

Clancarty at the Lyric Theatre, 1907

Tom Taylor's Clancarty was first produced as Lady Clancarty at the Olympic Theatre in 1874, with Henry Neville playing Lord Clancarty and Ada Cavendish playing Lady Clancarty. The later production in 1907, at the Lyric Theatre (shown here), was just called Clancarty with an entirely different cast. Lewis Waller as Lord Clancarty and Evelyn Millard as Lady Clancarty are shown in costumes of 1696, when the play is set. A remarkably late revival at the Lyric Theatre in London on 16th April 1907. Underneath the image (which is an illustration) it states that the photo is by Ellis and Walery, so presumably the image is based on a photograph. Ellis (1854 - 1930) specialised in theatrical photography and took a leading role in protecting the copyright of photographers, fighting several cases in the High Courts. He was one of the founders of the Copyright Union
