Fancy Meeting You by George Ranstead Featured 26 Aug 2011 Print

Fancy Meeting You by George Ranstead

Humorous illustration by George Ranstead, an amateur artist of the Great War who served in the Army Pay Corps, depicting a rascally little boy wriggling through a fence after stealing apples, only to find the gap guided by a large police officer. Ranstead was one of many soldiers of WWI who took up drawing as a hobby. His subjects range from wartime humour to pictures of pretty girls and are clearly influenced by images in the illustrated magazines of the period.
circa 1916

Djibouti, Two women water carriers

A very odd photographic postcard from Djibouti, East Africa, featuring two women of starkly differing physical stature. On the left is a small woman smoking a large cigarette and on the right is a huge woman of considerable stature, supporting a large water jug on her hip. They are standing in front of a wall made out of packing case slats. Date: circa 1910s

Revolution of Theriso - The insurgents at Malaxa Featured 26 Aug 2011 Print

Revolution of Theriso - The insurgents at Malaxa

In 1898, the Great Powers declared Crete as an independent Cretan State, under the rule of the Sultan. Yet, the administration of commander Prince George irritated the Cretans, who in March 1905 revolted - the famous Revolution of Theriso (the participants of which are depicted here), thus forcing Prince George to resign and appoint commandeer, Alexandros Zaimis. The leader of this revolt was Eleftherios Venizelos (1864 - 1936). This card shows the insurgents at Malaxa, a village in the Chania Prefecture on Crete. Date: 1905
