More to see

I’m in the middle of loading another batch of pics to the melange but the sun’s out, rain is forecast for tomorrow so I’m taking one of the bikes our for a canter. Meanwhile, thanks again to Francois, you’ll find some smashing new illustrations at the end of the cartoons/humour page and at the end of the 1903 feature (accurately) titled ‘Dogs: shoot hang or poson?’. This is my favourite of all the yarns unearthed from the Blue ‘Un. It isn’t bylined but I’d bet a gallon of ethanol-free petrol that it’s by Ixion—if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favour and have a butchers.

This image dates from 1907 when, it seems, dog were still faster than bikes.
