Ice yachting is the sport of sailing and racing iceboats

Ice yachting is the sport of sailing and racing iceboats, also called ice yachts
In 1911 modern ice yachts were made of a single-piece backbone the entire length of the boat, and a runner-plank upon which it rests at right angles, the two forming a kite-shaped frame. The best woods for these pieces are basswood, butternut, and pine. They are cut from the log in such a way that the heart of the timber expands, giving the planks a permanent curve, which, in the finished boat, is turned upward.

Preparing the watercress harvest. Watercress beds throughout the country

Preparing the watercress harvest. Watercress beds throughout the country, more so in the North, have suffered this year owing to the continued drought, which has a great effect on the growing of the is summer-dainty, it needing a "bath" for a "bed", in which to grow. One of the lucky series of beds to escape the ravages of the drought are those at Watford. The beds at Cassio Bridge, and this year's harvest is in no way affected. Our picture shows, well loaded gatherers on their way to the packing sheds to transport the cress to the London markets. Cassio Bridge, Watford, Hertfordshire, March 1934

17 inch Howitzer model at the Imperial War Museum. The King figures in a wonderful war

17 inch Howitzer model at the Imperial War Museum. The King figures in a wonderful war model. One of the most remarkable war models in the world is being placed on view by the Imperial War Museum, a notable feature of the model being a small portrait figure of the King at the Front (seen on the left). The model shows a 12 inch Mark V Howitzer on a railway mounting with the gun crew in action after firing a round. The King and the Prince of Wales are seen watching the crew at work. The perfectly reproduced Howitzer and mounting were made by Sir W C Armstrong Whitworth & Co. Ltd. and were purchased from them by the Imperial War Museum. The setting and figures were modelled by H H Cawood (late Lance-Corporal, Machine Gun Corps) under the direction of the Imperial War Museum staff. The figures are actually 4 inches high. The Queen has been pleased to accept a replica of the figure of the King. Pictured, a general view of the model. The figure of the King is seen on the left. December 1921
