The Grand National Trophy, 1906 (1908-1909).Artist: Elkington & Company

The Grand National trophy, 1906 (1908-1909). The Grand National is the most valuable National Hunt horse race in the United Kingdom. It is the biggest betting race in the United Kingdom, and is popular amongst many people who do not normally watch or bet on horse racing at other times of the year. It is also one of the most controversial, due to the number of injuries and fatalities suffered by the participating horses and has consequently been targeted by animal rights groups who have campaigned to have it banned. From Penrose's Pictorial Annual 1908-1909, An Illustrated Review of the Graphic Arts, volume 14, edited by William Gamble and published by AW Penrose (London, 1908-1909)

Hongi Maori salutations, 1908-1909.Artist: JL Martin

Hongi Maori salutations, 1908-1909. A Hongi is a traditional greeting in New Zealand. It is done by pressing one's nose to another person at an encounter. It is still used at traditional meetings among members of the Maori people and on major ceremonies. Through the exchange of this physical greeting, you are no longer considered manuhiri (visitor) but rather tangata whenua, one of the people of the land. For the remainder of your stay you are obliged to share in all the duties and responsibilities of the home people. In earlier times, this may have meant bearing arms in times of war, or tending crops of kumara (sweet potato). When Maori greet one another by pressing noses, the tradition of sharing the breath of life is considered to have come directly from the gods.

Ballymaclinton, Irish village, Franco-British Exhibition, London, 1908.Artist: R Welch

Ballymaclinton, Irish village, Franco-British Exhibition, London, 1908. The Franco-British Exhibition of 1908 celebrated the Entente Cordiale which had been signed by the United Kingdom and France in 1904. The fair was the largest exhibition of its kind in Britain, and the first international exhibition co-organised and sponsored by two countries. The most popular attractions at the exhibition were the two so-called colonial villages, an Irish village and a Senegalese village, which were designed to communicate the success of colonial imposition. The Irish village (Ballymaclinton) was inhabited by 150 colleens (Irish girls) who demonstrated various forms of domestic industry, as well as displays of manufacturing and even an art gallery.
