'Telescopic Philanthropy', 1865. Artist: John Tenniel Featured Print

'Telescopic Philanthropy', 1865. Artist: John Tenniel

'Telescopic Philanthropy', 1865. 'Little London Arab. Please 'M, Ain't We Black Enough to be Cared For? (With Mr. Punch's Compliments to Lord Stanley.)' In his novel, Bleak House, Dickens had highlighted and satirised the growing numbers of the middle classes who expended much time, effort and money on raising funds to 'civilise' (particularly black) foreign peoples, rather than concentrating on the problems of the poor at home. This 'telescopic philanthropy' was epitomised by Mrs Jellyby in Bleak House, but here is represented by Britannia who has her eyes fixed so firmly on the distant horizon that she fails entirely to see the three children at her feet who, like Dickens' Jo, represent the estimated 30, 000 homeless children living on the streets of London. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 4, 1865.

Swallow's Nest - Cape of Ai-Todor, Crimea, Ukraine

The 'Swallow's Nest' - perched up on the Aurora cliff overlooking the Cape of Ai-Todor on the Black Sea coast between Yalta and Alupka, in Crimea, Ukraine. The first building on the Aurora Cliff (a wooden cottage romantically named the "Castle of Love") was constructed for a Russian general circa 1895 (the structure pictured here), with ownership passing to A. K. Tobin, a court doctor to the Russian Tsar. In 1911, Baron von Steingel (a Baltic German noble) who had made a fortune extracting oil in Baku, acquired the timber cottage (pictured) and within a year had it replaced with the current building called Schwalbennest ('Swallow's Nest') Date: circa 1908
