From the Illustrated Police News, 12 November 1931, telling the story of an ape that escaped from a theatre to startle a woman in her bedroom.
In The Big Chill and Ripper, books three and four in the Sam Smith Mystery Series, Sam has a bodyguard, Mac. Mac drives a stylish Bugatti, Type 57, much like this one.
From my Victorian research, a penny farthing made for two, c1890
While researching the Victorian era for a novel set in 1888, during the murders committed by Jack the Ripper, I came across this picture. The picture shows Lottie Collins, a popular music hall entertainer of the era. It’s a very evocative image, I hope you agree.
