USA - Montana Cowboys have a little disagreement over cards

USA - Montana Cowboys have a little disagreement over cards. The Actors are playing it 'straight' with Poker faces, although the cowboy on the 'draw' is looking a little bit flush-ed'. Oddly the bottle of booze remains un-opened, possibly hinting this was not quite the real 'deal'. Date: circa 1910s

On Closer Inspection - Kaiser and King George

The Kaiser: "Why, I always thought your Lion was showing his teeth; I see, now, it's been intended for a genial smile!" King George V: "Well, to tell you the truth, I thought your Bird was making very unpleasant play with his talons, but I realise, now, he's been wanting to shake hands, bless him!!!" The union of Princess VIKTORIA LUISE of Prussia, only daughter of Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Prince Ernst of Cumberland, was the last great gathering of European royalty before the First World War. Here the father of the bride makes friendly overtures to his cousin King George V of Britain. Date: May 1913

A Member of H.M. Stanley's expedition threatening a baggage

Engraving showing a member of Sir Henry Morton Stanley's expedition to find Dr. David Livingstone threatening a baggage porter, Central Africa, 1871. The original caption to this image read: 'Look out! You drop that box - I'll shoot you.' The figure with the gun is most likely Stanley himself, although it may be one of his deputies, Shaw or Farquhar. In October 1869, Stanley (1841-1904) was sent by James Gordon Bennett (owner of the New York Herald) to find Dr. David Livingstone, who had been exploring central Africa for several years without passing any communication to Europe. In 1871 Stanley found Livingstone at Ujiji, Tanganika, and with it also, fame and some fortune. Stanley led several further expeditions to Africa, the last of these in 1886 to find and relieve Emin Pasha. In 1892 he took British citizenship and was Unionist MP for Lambeth between 1895 and 1900.
