The Kinecar by William Heath Robinson Featured Print

The Kinecar by William Heath Robinson

Double page illustration by William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) showing a well-equipped omnibus transporting passengers while they watch a film. The caption reads,'a luxurious vehicle fitted with many devices for the comfort of passengers returning home on a winter's evening', an interesting (and true) forecast for the future of travel. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles during his lifetime. His weekly drawings featuring mind-boggling contraptions and designs were immensely popular.

A Winter's Tale at the Prince's Theatre, Manchester 1869

A scene from A Winter's Tale at the Prince's Theatre, Oxford Street, Manchester 1869.

The frieze over the proscenium is a fine oil painting by Mr. H.S Marks, and depicts Shakespeare enthroned, flanked by allegories of Tragedy and Comedy. Date: 1869

Firefighters and winter snows, WW2 Featured Print

Firefighters and winter snows, WW2

The early winters of the Second World War were snowy with numerous falls of one or two feet and occasional falls (such as in 1940-1941) in which snow depths of up to 16 feet (drifts) were recorded. The south was quite badly affected, although more particularly the south west and Wales. The winter of 1939-1940 saw the supposed 'blizzard of the decade' in Scotland and England when in late January snow fell widely. As seen here, wartime firemen were kept busy keeping their station yards free of snow.
