First World War helmet eye screen

First World War helmet eye screen. First World War soldier wearing a helmet with a chain mail screen designed to protect his eyes from shrapnel and rock fragments during shelling. The First World War (1914-1918) saw a large number of head wounds due to shrapnel from the immense number of artillery shells used by each side to try and break the deadlock of trench warfare on the Western Front. The modern steel helmet was developed in response to this, though most did not have screens like the one seen here. This helmet and screen was manufactured by the E. J. Codd Company of Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The USA entered the war on 6 April 1917, playing a crucial role in helping Britain and France to defeat Germany and its allies. Photographed in 1918

Plague doctor, France, 18th century Featured Print

Plague doctor, France, 18th century

Plague doctor. Artwork of the clothing used by doctors during plague outbreaks. This design, though in use much earlier, is from The Great Plague of Marseilles, France, in 1720. The plague (or Black Death) affected Europe from the 1340s to the 1700s. It is thought to have been bubonic plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, and spread by fleas on rats. This outbreak, one of the largest in Europe in the early 18th century, killed over 100, 000 people. The costume's beaked bronze mask contained aromatic herbs. This reduced the smell for the doctor and the limited airflow through holes in the beak reduced exposure to "bad air". Gloves and a heavily oiled undergarment and cloak were also designed to reduce exposure. 19th century artwork by Daumier, published in Devils, Drugs and Doctors (London, 1929)

Plague in London, 1625 Featured Print

Plague in London, 1625

Plague in London. Title artwork from a 17th century pamphlet on the effects of the plague on London. This pamphlet, A Rod for Run-awayes, by Thomas Dekker, was published in 1625, one of the years in which a plague epidemic broke out. The plague (or Black Death) affected Europe from the 1340s to the 1700s. It is thought to have been bubonic plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, and spread by fleas on rats. During a typical outbreak, tens of thousands died in London alone. This artwork shows people dying (left) and people fleeing and being repelled by armed men in the surrounding areas (right). Death (here shown as a skeleton) is standing on a group of coffins, casting arrows at the fleeing people and saying he will follow them. The lightning represents God's wrath, and London is seen in the background
