The Ice Hole Clam Spearer by Heath Robinson Featured Print

The Ice Hole Clam Spearer by Heath Robinson

An ingenious, though perhaps rather complicated device to catch clams through ice in the frozen north, part of a series of drawings in the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News entitled, Very Patent Aides to Sport. A piece of toast tempts an underwater clam, who, the moment it attempts to take a bite will have triggered a string, which sounds a bell which in turn alerts the hunter to cut another string and send a spear diving down to kill its prey. Date: 1928

William Heath Robinson with a character created by him

Photograph of William Heath Robinson (1872-1944), from a piece in the Bystander of 1924 which also included some of his illustrative contemporaries, such as H. M. Bateman and A. K. Macdonald. Each artist had drawn a character suggestive of their style and Heath Robinson is seen here wiht a jovial old lady complete with apple basket and umbrella jumping from his hat. Robinson was a regular contributor to the Sketch, the Bystander and other ILN titles throughout his lifetime. His ingenious contraptions were immensely popular and made him a household name.
1924
