New room at the British Museum, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

New room at the British Museum, 1845. Creator: Unknown

New room at the British Museum, 1845. Visitors in the western wing of the British Museum in London, recently opened to the public: ...though the articles in the cases are scarcely yet arranged. In the centre of the apartment is placed the magnificent Chinese Bell, taken from a Buddhist Temple at Ningpo, and presented to the Museum by her Majesty [Queen Victoria]. On account of the present position of the Bell, the new apartment at the Museum has been called the "Chinese Room"; though, besides this spoil, there are but few curiosities of Celestial civilisation. Here will be found the specimens of South Sea manufacture which formerly filled the first of the old suite of the Museum Rooms...There are, likewise, several idols, happily becoming comparatively rare in the countries whence they were obtained.'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Bushman Children, Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, 1845. San children being exhibited as curiosities in London. Two Bushmen...Children have lately been brought from the interior of Africa...the female is thirty two inches high, and eight years old; and the male only forty four inches in height, though nearly full grown, and sixteen years of age. They wear the dress of their tribe (Hottentots); they throw a spear, dance, &c; the Bushman, as a Corporal of the Army, goes through the Manual and Platoon Exercises; and the Bush girl appears as a Soldier's Wife; and their several feats are very amusing. Their parents are stated to have been murdered by Kaffirs, who pursue and exterminate the Bushman Tribe with unrelenting ferocity: they were rescued by a Dutch Trader...We hope they may here receive many visitors...to the Ethnographers, in a scientific point of view, these specimens of a "pigmy race" maybe especially interesting'.

Sidi Mohammed's tent, captured by the French, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Sidi Mohammed's tent, captured by the French, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Sidi Mohammed's tent, captured by the French, 1844. One of the trophies taken by the French army from the Moors,...the Tent of the eldest son of the Emperor [Muhammad IV of Morocco]. It was displayed in Paris: It required no less than forty mules to convey it from place to place. Above the first tent rises a second, and much larger one, which serves to shade the first from the rays of the sun. Both are surmounted by a large ball of gilt copper, which can be seen from a considerable distance. At the entrance of the tent, and on one side of it, are a number of arches, or rather niches, which served as shelter for the guards of the gate. The tent was surrounded at some distance by a kind of wall, also of white linen, which prevented anyone seeing or hearing from the outside what passed in the royal presence'.
