The Mat de Cocagne, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Mat de Cocagne, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Mat de Cocagne, 1845. Bastille Day celebrations in Paris. ...the struggle for prizes is carried on by means of a high pole fixed in the Champs Elysees, and the prizes, which generally consist of a watch and some articles of jewellery, are placed at the top of the pole. The pole is well soaped or greased, particularly near the top, so that it is a very difficult matter to attain the summit. Some of the cunning competitors fill their pockets with sand to neutralise the effects of the grease. Sometimes one man mounts on another's shoulders, and they thus render each other mutual assistance to gain the summit; but the moment a slip takes place, it is impossible to maintain a hold of the pole, and down comes the competitor amidst the jeers of the multitude'. It is only by dint of perseverance...that the greasy substance wears off, and the summit is gained'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Captain Scott's Last Birthday Dinner, 6 Jun 1911, (1913). Celebrating expedition leader Robert F Scott's 43rd birthday, left to right: Atkinson, Meares, Cherry-Garrard, Oates (standing), Taylor, Nelson, Evans, Scott, Wilson, Simpson, Bowers, Gran (standing), Wright, Debenham, Day. The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume I. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]

William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston

William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston, c1860, (1938). In February, 1858, Emerson wrote in his Journal, It is impossible to be a gentleman and not be an Abolitionist. But conservative Northern opinion frowned severely on the activities of Abolitionist agitators. When William Lloyd Garrison tried to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston, he and his cohorts were thrown out bodily by the citizens, who subsequently held a meeting whch resolved that Bown's was a nefarious enterprise, and humbly asked their Virginia brothers to help preserve a Union so important to the interest of commerce, manufactures, and agriculture. From Adventures of America 1857-1900, by John A. Kouwenhoven [Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York and London, 1938]
