The Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig Featured Print

The Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig

"The Next Haig Convention" By the 23rd of October, Britain could almost taste victory and this picture by Arthur Ferrier, showing a cowed Kaiser handing over his sword to Douglas Haig, would be frighteningly accurate if it were not for the fact that the Allies demanded the Kaiser's abdication before they would discuss armistice terms. "Little Willie", the Kaier's eldest son, and the bulk of the Hindenburg complete a fairly dejected trio. Arthur Ferrier led a colourful life. Born in Scotland, he began his career as an analytical chemist, before becoming a cartoonist at the Daily Record in Glasgow. His move to London saw him contribute to Punch, London Opinion and tit-Bits as well as The Bystander and The Sketch in later years. He is best known for pioneering the glamorous cartoon strip girl, and illustrating 1940s and 50s theatreland. A great socialite and raconteur, his Times obituary referred to him as a "cartoonist, portrait painter, bon viveur and wit". Date: 1918

Princess Caraboo by Fortunino Matania

Mary Baker (n饠Willcocks) (1791-1864) a Devonshire cobbler's daughter and noted impostor. Posing as the fictional Princess Caraboo, Baker pretended to be from a far off island kingdom inveigling herself into society. Pictured here in the house of Mr Worrall, the County Magistrate, and his wife, after she had made herself a dress of her own design and managed to secure herself a bow and arrow which she was prone to use rather frequently, much to the distress of her hosts. Date: 1945
