Sometimes this researcher accidentally comes across an old British news article that’s really from another world.
Illustrated Police News – Saturday 31 October 1896 was reporting the dreadful scene on a London omnibus whereby a lady fell into shock at the sight of the knees of a collection of boys who had just been playing football. I’d love to know who the lady was as she was a member of The National Vigilance Association. My guess is that it could have been Millicent Garrett (1847-1929); Feminist and Suffragist. or one of her associates.
