Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn

Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn (22nd September 1853 -21st May 1928) was a touring magician and inventor from Austria. After first being an assistant to Bellachini, he made extensive tours of Europe, America and the Orient. He was assisted by his wife Julia. His act 'An Hour in Dreamland' introduced a number of his creations. Among his innovations was the cremation illusion in which his assistant vanished in flames as she stood within an asbestos curtain. Another was "Noah's Ark" in which a model of the Ark, first shown empty, produced various animals, climaxing in the production of Noah's wife. The image shows a black and white photograph of Thorn asleep in a chair surrounded by an illustrative dreamlike scene. This features a woman floating behind him with a flowing dress and a white dove flying beside her. Date: 1800s, 1900s

Caricature of Prince Leopold in Parliament

Caricature of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany (1853-1884), youngest son of Queen Victoria -- The Royal Hat-Trick. A comment on a parliamentary debate about granting more money to Prince Leopold (and to his bride) on the event of their marriage. The Prince was not present in person, but some MPs, including the radical Liberal MP John Bright (right), showed disrespect by not removing their hats while a royal person was the subject of debate. There was some opposition to granting the Prince more money, but the vote was easily carried in his favour.
1882
