A woman setting a post mill alight, c1340, (1947). Creator: Unknown

A woman setting a post mill alight, c1340, (1947). In the Middle Ages, grain could be brought to mills for grinding. Here, in the second in a pair of images, a woman is shown setting the mill alight, presumably as revenge against an unscrupulous miller. Marginal illustration from the Smithfield Decretals (Royal MS 10 E IV, f. 71r). Manuscript in the British Library, London. Published in "British Windmills and Watermills', by C. P. Skilton. [Collins, London, 1947]

Bath time, c1881. Creator: Randolph Caldecott

Bath time, c1881. 'When I was a farmer, a Farmer's Boy, I used to keep my master's children'. The Farmer's Boy, wearing a bonnet and apron, baths his employer's children. A small girl squirts him with a sponge as he dries her sibling on his lap. A third child sits in a bath of water on the floor. Cured hams, onions and dried herbs hang from the ceiling, and a wooden press can be seen behind the settle. From "The Farmer's Boy" written and illustrated by Randolph Caldecott.

John Gilpin on his bolting horse being chased by passers-by, 1878, (c1918). Creator

John Gilpin on his bolting horse being chased by passers-by, 1878, (c1918). Riders shout 'Stop thief! Stop thief! A Highwayman!', and set off in pursuit, wrongly assuming that as Gilpin is being chased by the postboy, he must be a criminal. A signpost points to Ware in Hertfordshire. John Gilpin was the subject of a comic ballad of 1782 by William Cowper entitled "The Diverting History of John Gilpin". The ballad, based on real-life character, describes how, on a journey to Edmonton (north in London), Gilpin, a draper, became separated from his wife and children after losing control of his horse, and ended up in the town of Ware, ten miles away from his intended destination. From "The Diverting History of John Gilpin", by William Cowper. [Frederick Warne and Co., London & New York, c1918]
