David Lloyd George leaving Downing Street

Lloyd George pictured leaving Downing Street after his resignation with his wife and daughter Megan. His resignation announcement featured in the Court circular of 19th October. Lloyd George was the president of the Board of Trade between 1905-1908 and became the Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1908. His most popular move was to pass the Old Age Pensions Act and the National Insurance Act. He superseded H. H Asquith as coalition Prime Minister, 1916-1922, successfully handling peace negotiations after the war. In 1921 he came upon his most controversial agreement with Sinn Fein for the independence of Southern Ireland. His popularity faded and his party was undecided about their support. In 1922 Lloyd George handed in his resignation

Dr Slade the spirit medium

The trial of Henry Slade, the medium who was said to communicate with spirits by a slate board. Top sketch shows Mr G. Leis, counsel for the Prosecution and bottom image shows Professor E. Ray Lankester, giving evidence. Slade first practised his spirit communication in America before travelling to England. He gave seances from his lodgings in Russell Square, London. Word spread quickly of his talents and stirred the attention of two professionals, Mr Lankester and Dr Donkin. After two seances Professor Lankester seized the slate and discovered that the slate already had writing on it before it had left the table. Lankester used this as evidence that Slade was a fraud. Henry Slade's trial took place at Bow Street court in October 1876

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve

Ethel Le Neve, Dr Crippen's mistress. Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship, the Montrose, on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name
