Great Boon to Our Household Guards, 1870. Artist: Joseph Swain Featured Print

Great Boon to Our Household Guards, 1870. Artist: Joseph Swain

Great Boon to Our Household Guards, 1870. This cartoon refers specifically to the Metropolitan force, set up originally in 1829. John Bull, the representative of the British people, is depicted opening his purse to give Policeman A1 an extra shilling per week in wages. The country's police service by now numbered 26, 000 officers, from 15, 000 in 1856. The force had a significant effect on the reduction of crime and its status had risen as it became more efficient. However, it was now believed that further improvements in the force's performance would follow the recruitment of officers with better education and administration skills. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 25, 1870

National Amusement - The Bus Kitchen 1918

If the ministry of food carries out its latest scheme, there should be plenty of excitement in getting one's dinner from the travelling food kichens, especially since the ministry naively remarks that there is no reson why gramophones and electric pianos should not be utilised to make the time of waiting for your potatoes less wearisome.

Camera and steam power, 1871 Featured Print

Camera and steam power, 1871

Camera and steam power. 19th-century artwork of a crowd of people queuing to be photographed by a large camera, with a steam engine (steam visible) behind it. Prints were developed in the adjoining hut and handed to customers as they descended the steps at left. The photographic method most commonly in use at the time was the collodion wet plate process, where the film was coated, exposed and developed within a period of around 15 minutes. Steam engine technology advanced rapidly in the 19th century. This lithograph was drawn by H. G. Webber and published in 1871 by Gibson and Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
