The ubiquitous British Soyer Boiler, invented during the Crimean War by celebrity chef Alexis Soyer as an economical, hygienic, portable and straightforward method of large volume cooking. Soyer is arguably as important a figure as Florence Nightingale in improving the disgraceful conditions that lead to malnutrition, disease and needless suffering away from the battlefield.

Anyway, his boiler continued to be used for most of a century, apparently on issue in the first Gulf War to some units. There was also a substantial production for civil use during emergency situations.

The first picture (credit to Yorkshire's East Riding Archive) shows a member of a Civil Defence Welfare squad taking part in Exercise Exodus, a 1961 event based around Hull, that trained local groups in evacuating large amounts of people by coach and ferry.
 There were other similar exercises held across the UK, with the aim of simulating the clearance of areas that hadn't been hit by atomic explosions, but were at imminent risk of fall out contamination.

One such exercise, near me in West Sussex, was called Exercise Bluebell and used the newly formed Bluebell preservation railway as part of the transport logistics. I need to see if I can find more information on that event, it does sound really interesting. 
The second photo (credit to the Royal Voluntary Service archive) shows a typical setup of Soyers used by the redoubtable ladies of the WVS. One is labelled TEA and another for the washing up water.

The WVS were heavily involved in the Welfare side of UK civil defence, and they ran a remarkable programme early in the Cold War called "1 in 5". This aimed to educate 1 in 5 of the women in the UK about protection and survival before and after nuclear attack. Arguably 1 in 5 was more progressive and widespread (for the general public) than any of the central government information projects.

On this date, Dec. 15, 1939, in City of Champions history, Garfield’s Wally Tabaka injured his knee in a scrimmage against Lodi at Passaic Stadium and would end up missing the game in Miami. John Grembowitz watched from the stands with a staph infection as Benny Babula dazzled. #garfieldnj #lodinj #passaicnj #miami #highschoolfootball #football #americanhistory #worldwar2 #socialhistory #polishimmigrants #newjersey #italianimmigrants

Ever seen this book? Maybe you thought it was a bit of kitsch Australiana and quietly chuckled at the outlandish safari suit Don is wearing. Well, there’s a bit more to it than that. Dunstan a very progressive premier of South Australia and this first edition book is a lengthy essay that critiques and celebrates Australia. Don looks at issues around multiculturalism and frankly discusses Aboriginal Australia and racism. It’s certainly dated - this was published in 1978, forty years ago, but it’s still a remarkable text. It’s illustrated throughout with excellent photography by Julia Featherstone. It’s ultimately an odd, idiosyncratic book, that deserves to be noted as more than a kitsch throwaway. #book #australia #socialhistory #culturalhistory #photography #documentary

No doubt inspired by Harry Anslinger’s rants and raves about the “evil” marijuana, anti-dope books were very popular in the ’40s and ’50s. The covers, usually depicting big-breasted women hanging out in unsavory locales, were often more powerful than the stories inside. The plot lines were as inauthentic as the characters, which often featured gun-totting, marijuana-addicted losers. It Ain’t Hay was written well after The LaGuardia Report concluded that marijuana wasn’t any more harmful to society than alcohol — evidence that cultural attitudes, and not empirical studies, have often influenced cannabis prohibition. 
It Ain’t Hay
A Dell thriller by David Dodge, first published by Simon and Schuster in 1946.
Back cover line: “Where marijuana and murder make a thrilling story.” Hay, another nickname for marijuana, features in this book about dope smuggling. Favorite quote: “Marijuana doesn’t do anything to the inner man except undress him.” #highlightstrippyhistory #cannabis #marijuana #dope #weed #socialhistory #cannabisculture #cannabiscommunity #cannabiscures #cannabissociety #cannabis420 #cannabisdaily #420 #cannagrowers @cannagrowers #hashish #edibles #baked #hippies #stoner #sativa #indica #high #cbd #thc #canadianstoners #hightimes

During the early 19th century close to thirty British portrait miniature artists were lured to make the voyage to India in the hope of making a richer living. Amongst them was John Jukes, the artist of this small watercolour. Jukes settled in Bombay where one of his relatives was working. The sitter showing here is 33 year old George A W Trotter who was employed by the East India Company as a ‘scavenger’, a job that was every bit as glamorous as it sounds as his job description was to keep the streets clean!

Back to the 16thC today, and an amusing anecdote from an Elizabethan fair. Fairs were huge events in the Tudor period: encompassing sports, markets, food and drink, entertainment and gambling. Sometimes, they were also places to continue squabbles with your neighbours.
.
At Hedingham Fair in 1569, Edward Glassock, gentleman of Castle Hedingham, attacked Robert Cockerell, a husbandman of nearby Great Maplestead. It's unclear what exactly was the cause of this bad blood. The altercation had started weeks earlier; with Glassock lying in wait for Cockerell near his house, ready to spring a surprise attack. When he approached, Glassock struck Cockerell on the shoulder with his cudgel, shouting energetically, "Take thee that!" The violent scuffle continued until the men were separated - Cockerell lashing Glassock with his whip while Glassock retaliated with a long pike.
.
The fight started up again at Hedingham with the men having to be forcibly parted by onlookers. One such helpful local was George Stroud, who was then set upon by both Glassock AND Cockerell. He managed to defend himself for some time, before a constable turned up, arrested him, and put him in the stocks for his troubles. Stroud's later petition to the magistrates complained of his treatment at the hands of the policeman, which was "contrary to equity and justice." Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any records of what happened to the agitators Glassock or Cockerell. 🥊🥊

The RED HOUSE is the only house commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris, founder of the Arts & Crafts movement and so it is a building of extraordinary architectural and social significance.
Designed by Philip Webb and completed in 1860, it was described by Edward Burne-Jones as 'the beautifullest place on earth'. Acquired by the National Trust, the rooms at Red House give a unique view of William Morris’ earliest designs and decorative schemes. Its secrets are slowly being revealed, conservation work in 2013 uncovered an unknown Pre-Raphaelite wall painting and a very early Morris repeating floral pattern.

Enjoyed this evening’s fascinating talk at Southsea Library by local author @matt.wingett , which celebrates the launch of his latest book ‘Portsmouth, A Literary and Pictorial Tour’ 📚. #portsmouth #southsea #mattwingett #author #localauthor #localhistory #history #socialhistory #book #literary #literature
A personal social history, an assortment of documents shows how time and history has shaped our identity. I love 💗 these photos! 
No 1: My Dad’s first passport as a British citizen of the Crown Colony, Cyprus. In August 1956, aged 19 he travelled to the U.K. by boat, taking him 7 days. Britain annexed Cyprus from Ottoman rule in 1914. The British declared Cyprus as a Crown Colony in 1925 until August 1960. 
No 2: My Grandmother’s Cypriot ID card with her thumb print, as she could not read or write. A British Subject, referred to as a Turk and Muslim, no reference to being Turkish Cypriot, like today. 
3: My Grandfather’s passport, in the 1950’s conflict between the British and the Greek Cypriot organisation EOKA was taking hold, the organisation was fighting for independence from Britain and unification with Greece. On the 16th August 1960, Cyprus gained Independence and became The Republic of Cyprus. It was agreed by all parties Cyprus would remain independent. 
4: My Grandmother’s change of surname certificate, ‘official’ surnames were to be taken in 1974. Hence how I have two surnames. My Grandfather’s Passport a citizen of The Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. In 1983 the North of the Island declared itself as an independent state, after the war and division of the Island in 1974. #familyhistory #socialhistory #cyprus #kıbrıs #identity #personalhistory #ancestry #wheredoyoubelong #noborders #humanity #peace

“Indigo, the deep blue contains an abundance of sapphires shining their light through the density, awakening and stirring our consciousness.” ~ Jennifer Lynch

Magnificent and exceptional Austrian solid 18 carat gold, gemstone / jewelled walking stick / cane, made in Vienna, Austria, circa 1880. This is an absolutely stunnning and rare luxury walking stick / cane made in Vienna circa 1880 by the famous jewellers, Franz Heiss & Sohne. The cane has a removable handle which unscrews and indeed the handle has its own original fitted case. The handle has a round top set with fine cut sapphires above a superb cut single piece of tapering smoky quartz and a reeded gold band band. The shaft of the cane is of beautiful tapering snakewood and a yellow metal ferrule. The quality and craftsmanship exhibited in this cane is exceptional and it is an item of exquisite beauty and elegance. The jewelled handle - which would have been an extremely expensive jewel at the time - was made so that it unscrews and therefore could be used both on alternative walking stick / cane shafts as well as for parasols and umbrellas. The gold has clear 750 hallmark for 18 carat gold, A for Vienna. The original fitted case also has the maker's stamp for Franz Heiss & Sohne with their Vienna address. The walking stick is in absolutely pristine condition.

A portrait of Sarah Churchill, 1st Duchess of Marlborough (1660-1744) by Sir Godfrey Kneller, painted c.1700. Sarah was appointed Lady of the Bedchamber in 1683 to Princess Anne, and become a confidante, promoting Anne’s interests to James II’s successors, William and Mary, before eventually being crowned Queen Anne in 1702 after William’s death. Following Sarah’s husband’s victories in the War of the Spanish Succession, beginning with the Battle of Blenheim in 1704, they were duly awarded the Dukedom of Marlborough and the land and finances to construct a home befitting John’s elevated status as a national war hero, Blenheim Palace. Sarah continued to enjoy a very close relationship with Anne, which many perceive as being intimate in nature, until 1711 when the relationship soured and the Marlboroughs were banished from court. Kneller has been genius in painting this subtle portrayal of Sarah, prior to becoming Duchess of Marlborough, as she and John had married in secret, much to the dismay of both their families who disagreed with the match. Sarah’s hands are delicately position to emphasise the key, initialled ‘AR’, emphasising her ‘key position’ (no pun intended) in the court, under Anne. Kneller was one of the finest portrait painters, and appointed as court painter from Charles II go George I. This patronage only emphasises Sarah’s influence amongst the royal family, no matter how much she was derided by a William & Mary.

In homage to @myleslea I paid a visit to the National Portrait Gallery to reacquaint myself with artworks I have not enjoyed in a long time. This particular portrait of the Tyers family by Francis Hayman, painted in 1740, offers a fascinating insight into social history of the time. The family are credited with making Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens a fashionable resort for London gentry and they clearly profited from their venture. The family were not aristocratic by birth, which is somewhat reflected in the humbler surroundings of the room, but the subtle symbolism of their connections and amassed wealth are demonstrated through symbolic imagery. Tea was an expensive commodity in the 18th century, along with the accoutrements associated drinking it. Above the mantle is a bust of Frederick, Prince of Wales, the Tyer’s most high profile patron of the Pleasure Gardens. A subtle display of rich fabrics (possibly velvet and silk?) at the bottom right hand corner in the dress of one of the Tyer’s daughters is further evidence of their ability to afford such items along with a university education for their son, Thomas, seen here in gown and mortar board.

The Making of Middle Indonesia: Kelas Menengah di Kota Kupang, 1930-an - 1980-an

Penulis: Gerry van Klinken
Judul asli: The Making of Middle Indonesia: Middle Classes in Kupang Town, 1930s-1980 [Brill, 2014]
Penerjemah: Masri Maris
Desain sampul: Iksaka Banu
Penerbit: YOI & KITLV, 2015
Tebal: 373 halaman: 16x24cm

Apa yang menjadikan Indonesia tetap bersatu padu? "Pemimpin yang Kuat" adalah jawaban yang paling sering diberikan. Sebaliknya, buku ini melihat jawabannya pada tingkat menengah dalam masyarakat. Kelas menengah di kota-kota provinsi di seluruh Nusantara menjadi penghubung antara negara dan masyarakat dan turut membentuk kekuasaan negara. The Making of Middle Indonesia meneliti kebangkitan sebuah kelas menengah di sebuah kota provinsi yang letaknya jauh dari ibu kota. Mulai dari masa akhir kolonial hingga masa awal era Orde Baru, buku ini mengembangkan sebuah pemahaman asosiasi yang kurang lazim terhadap kekuasaan politik. Modalitas kekuasaan yang "lembut" mencakupi orang-orang nonelite di kota menengah dalam negara Indonesia yang sedang bangkit. Pada waktu bersamaan, kesenjangan meningkat dan menghasilkan ketegangan kelas yang akhirnya meletus berupa kekerasan pada tahun 1965-1966.

I keep forgetting to post. Fun times at the moment, with work and the gallery and family too, but may I bore you about my house? Silverwood (so it says on the pillar outside). .
.
It's not pretty. It's not really period. I suspect someone, a lovely man by all accounts, died in it. It has pre-war electrics, too dangerous to use. Lead water pipes, ditto. Windows, ditto. A bomb shelter. Layers of paint and dirt and probably more lead. But it's mine and already I love it, this place that will be our home.

Building work has started, so expect more boring posts (or unfollow now, yeah?), but I've also started a project about the house, the street and its history with my friend @notquitelight - and those posts will be significantly less boring. Stay tuned 👍

Stuart Maconie – Jarrow; Road to the Deep South (TUE 4 JUN)

In October 2016, writers and broadcaster Stuart Maconie walked 300 miles from Jarrow to London retracing the famous Jarrow Crusade 80 years on, through a divided, complex country that echoes 1936 in many ways. From choral evensong to curry house, from austerity to affluence, from Wearside to Westminster, join him on an entertaining, impassioned, enlightening journey through Britain then and now.

Stuart is a bestselling author of travel, culture and social history books as well as one of Britain’s best known radio presenters across many BBC networks

Detail shot from 'Sainsbury' the Meiji period child's garment which tells the love story of bloomsbury artist, Hester Sainsbury and Japanese playwright Torahiko Kori. 
The piece was inspired by their handwritten letters- their love was so fragmentary, strained and yet deep.  I deconstructed and reconstructed this little garment many times to understand it..which at times disintegrated in my hands.

Their exact words are stitched 'flowing' amidst the floating remnants of a paper wrapper collected on their travels.  It was physically hard to stitch...her English words jarring against the busy rigid Meiji print.  Perhaps my creative struggle was a metaphor for their love never meant to be.

There's so much more to say... If you're interested in this fascinating cross-cultural time in British history you can come and hear a little more... Link in bio.

Sugar ration card
.
.
Jordan Taylor-Bosanko is Learning Officer for the Museum and talks about what the ration cards can tell us: “You can see from the cards that Kate and Reginald Heddon and their young daughter, Doreen, lived at 13 Llantrisant Street. They had to purchase their sugar from Direct Trading Co. Ltd, 6 St. John Square. The cards date from January 1918 to August 1918. However food rationing continued long after the war ended in November 1918 as food was still scarce.”

Cardiau Dogni Siwgr

Jordan Taylor-Bosanko yw Swyddog Dysgu’r Amgueddfa. Yma mae’n sôn am yr hyn y gallwn ei ddysgu o’r cardiau dognau: “Gallwch weld o’r cardiau fod Kate a Reginald Heddon, a’u merch fach Doreen, yn byw yn 13 Llantrisant Street. Roedd yn rhaid iddynt brynu eu siwgr o Direct Trading Co. Ltf, 6 Sgwâr Sant Ioan. Mae’r cardiau’n dyddio o Ionawr 1918 i Awst 1918. Fodd bynnag, parhaodd y dogni am gyfnod hir ar ôl i'r rhyfel ddod i ben ym mis Tachwedd 1918 oherwydd roedd bwyd yn brin o hyd."

However food rationing continued long after the war ended in November 1918 as food was still scarce.” . . . Cardiau Dogni Siwgr . . Jordan Taylor-Bosanko yw Swyddog Dysgu’r Amgueddfa. Yma mae’n sôn am yr hyn y gallwn ei ddysgu o’r cardiau dognau: “Gallwch weld o’r cardiau fod Kate a Reginald Heddon, a’u merch fach Doreen, yn byw yn 13 Llantrisant Street. Roedd yn rhaid iddynt brynu eu siwgr o Direct Trading Co. Ltf, 6 Sgwâr Sant Ioan. Mae’r cardiau’n dyddio o Ionawr 1918 i Awst 1918. Fodd bynnag, parhaodd y dogni am gyfnod hir ar ôl i'r rhyfel ddod i ben ym mis Tachwedd 1918 oherwydd roedd bwyd yn brin o hyd." . . #cardiffstory  #cardiffstorymuseum  #igerscardiff  #museumlife  #museumobject  #sugarration  #igerscymru  #amgueddfastoricaerdydd  #socialhistory 
17th Century clay tobacco pipe in a style characteristic of the west of England, c. 1640-1660. Features the maker's mark of Jeffrey Hunt, recorded as working in Bristol. Found on the River Thames foreshore, London.

This pipe may well have been made during the English Civil War (1642-1651), a conflict between forces loyal to the King and those to Parliament. Bristol started the war as a neutral, was then occupied by Parliamentarian forces before being captured by the Royalists in 1643.
