In the suffragette campaigns in England, women would go on hunger strikes in prison for the right to vote. The Prisoner’s Temporary Discharge of Ill Health Act of 1913 let authorities release prisoners, then re-arrest them when they got better — it became known as the “Cat-and-Mouse Act.” Advocates started to use cats as a symbol in posters like this.

Thomas Johnstone Lipton (1848-1931), Scottish yachtsman. Lipton, famous for founding the Lipton tea brand, was a keen yachtsman. He competed five times in the America's Cup between 1899 and 1930. This photograph, sent by Lipton to a friend, carried an inscription dated 17 October 1902, referring to himself as skipper of his steam yacht the Erin (purchased 1898). Lipton made his fortune by investing in tea plantations to supply his chain of grocery stores, starting in Glasgow and then extending across the UK. He had been created Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) in 1901, and was made a baronet in 1902.
Vlad the Impaler (1431-1476), ruler of Wallachia, also known by his patronymic name Dracula. He ruled as Vlad III, succeeding his father as Voivode of Wallachia in what is now part of modern Romania. He was named 'the Impaler' after he gained a reputation for cruel executions, though he is revered as a folk hero in Romania. It is thought that Vlad III's patronymic inspired the name of the vampire in Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' (1897). Artwork from the title page of the 1491 Bamberg edition of the work known as 'Dracole Wayda'.

It was used to measure blood pressure; the cuff (brown) would be placed around the patient's arm whilst the physician placed their finger on the wrist to feel for the radial pulse. The cuff was inflated using the rubber bulb (black) until the pulse could no longer

The cuff was inflated using the rubber bulb (black) until the pulse could no longer be felt. The level of the mercury in the glass tube (centre) would indicate the pressure in the cuff. The pressure would be released from the cuff slowly and the point at which the radial pulse returned would be read from the level of the mercury and this

Woman with different facial expressions (left and right) involving coquetry (flirting) induced by electrical probes applied by French neurologist Guillaume Duchenne (1806-1875).

This work was subtitled 'The Electro-Physiological Analysis of the Expression of the Passions, Applicable to the Practice of the Plastic Arts'.
