katejm For @londonhistorian: this beautiful banner made by Dora Meeson Coates, was carried in the London suffragette marches of 1908 and 1911. It's one of my very favourite works in the collection of Parliament House. 5d

katejm One history post today - and I do have a few more fabulous things to share (and need to praise @lucy_cooks for busting a history myth) - but this page was the CRY/LAUGH moment! The volume is "Records of the family of John Ainsworth Horrocks, pioneer and founder of the ruined village of Penwortham and its church on the river Hut, Stanley county, South Australia." 1890. Only three copies in Australia, none digitised. And apart from the title page, here's the FIRST mention of Horrocks the explorer: on the LAST page. And see what the AUTHOR has written on the bottom of the page? I laughed out loud and was shushed by the Rare Books Room users. 3w

  •   katejm I promise to do that soon @pidgeonfeather ! 3w

  •   katejm @angustrumble this is for ST Gill conference - you can guess for whom I'm fact checking! So wish I could be there. May I ask on what subject you will be speaking? 3w
  •   katejm @gaga_sue I'm loving it - lucky to have access to so much! And digitisation has made it so much quicker (not always easier, or better, but definitely quicker). 3w
  •   angustrumble @katejm Funny you should ask, cramming for it this weekend: Trying to track parallel paths trodden by Gill and Thomas Woolner (the Pre-Raph sculptor) at Mt Alexander diggings, though there is no clue that they never met 3w

katejm Some camel background: Harry the camel is infamous. He shot JA Horrocks, the explorer and Harry's owner. This (badly cropped) image is called The Invalid's Tent, by ST Gill who was on the expedition. Horrocks is inside, in excruciating pain, the shot having taken off a finger, before going through his lower jaw. Truly horrid. There's Harry grazing without any remorse. We know: Harry arrives from Teneriffe in 1840, and that he goes with Horrocks' party in 1846 to north-western South Australia. SO - what about the years in between? 3w
  •   sazzamatazz @gwjones85 you really must follow my dear friend and fine purveyor of wisdom and good humour, @katejm . You have a mutual fascination with history and intriguing stories! X 3w
