The Tender Grace of a Day that is Dead, late 19th century, (c1930). Creator: Walter Langley

The Tender Grace of a Day that is Dead, late 19th century, (c1930). A woman looks wistfully out of the window as her son whittles a piece of wood, possibly for the toy boat in the window-seat. On her lap is fabric she has been mending, with thread and a sewing box on the table next to her. Painting, also known as The tender grace of a day that is dead will never come back to me, in the Gallery Oldham, Greater Manchester. From "Modern Masterpieces of British Art". [The Amalgamated Press Ltd., London, c1930]

Chaplin Court Treatt, British motoring pioneer, mending his veldtschoen (shoes), c1924-c1926 (1927). The notion of a Pan-African Highway crossing the continent from north to south was a British imperial dream that first emerged in the 1890s. In 1918, when Tanganyika passed from Germany to Britain after the First World War, it became theoretically possible to make the journey exclusively on British territories. Chaplin Court Treatt (1888-1954), a British former Major in the Royal Flying Corps, led the first expedition to successfully drive from Cape Town to Cairo. Leaving Cape Town on 23 September 1924, the expedition, in two Crossley light trucks, arrived in Cairo on 24 January 1926. Treatt and his wife Stella made a film of the expedition and she also wrote a book about the journey, Cape to Cairo, published in 1927. The highway did not come to fruition however. A print from Cape to Cairo, by Stella Court Treatt, George G Harrap & Company Ltd, 1927
