Canberra PR9 Featured August Print

Canberra PR9

Pictured during a routine sortie, aircraft WJ874 was painted to represent the first prototype Canberra, VN799, when it flew for the first time on 13 May 1949 at Warton airfield, where it had been built. A total of 1347 Canberra's were produced and of the 925 built in the UK 773 were delivered to the RAF.
The Canberra PR9 will be formally retired from RAF service in 2006. The aircraft's illustrious and extensive career with the RAF will end when the last four Canberra PR9s of 39 (part of 1 Photographic Reconnaissance Unit (PRU)) land at RAF Marham for the final time.
When the PR9 lands for the last time, Canberra's will have been in continuous front-line service with the RAF for a staggering 55 years, or nearly two-thirds of the RAF's entire existence

Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849 Featured August Print

Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849

Water! Water! Everywhere; and not a Drop to Drink, 1849. Comment on the London water supply during the reappearance of cholera in 1848 and 1849. Cholera first appeared in Britain in 1831, and its relationship with poor public hygiene and contaminated water supply was not understood until this was established by John Snow (1813-1858). Snow's work led to legislation paving the way for dramatic improvements in all aspects of public health provision. Cartoon from Punch, London, 1849, with a mis-quote from Coleridge's Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner

The Conservative Programme, 1872. Artist: Joseph Swain Featured August Print

The Conservative Programme, 1872. Artist: Joseph Swain

The Conservative Programme, 1872. This cartoon shows Benjamin Disraeli, the Conservative Leader of the Conservative Party. He is being questioned by Lord Abercorn about the Conservative policy. The caption gives in reply a snippet of one of Disraeli's recent speeches given at Crystal Palace, in which he said that the Conservatives proposed relying on the sublime instinct of an ancient people, rather than formulating a hard and fast programme of policies. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 6, 1872
