Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

Boxing is known as “the sweet science” — in the 19th century, to say that a person used their fists in a scientific fashion was generally meant to indicate that they had a knowledge of proper boxing technique.

they took the time to illustrate the story.

so sick of hipster stuff on my dash, i don’t cARE ABOUT PICTURES OF CHILDREN STARING AT NOTHING LIKE WHAT IS THE POINT OF A PHOTO OF A KID STARING AT NOTHING omfG

Oh look, you took a black and white photo of a little boy in the park you must be so broody and mysterious.

What’s the point of the random kid staring at the sky?

I reblogged this, but I can’t remember why

LOL R U GUYS SERIOUS THEres a oh no wait i just scrolled back up it really is just a kid staring at nothing now im confused.

I mean I wonder what he could be looking at?  a bird? a plane? SUPERMAN? It must be great though because he looks awfully interested in whatever is in the distance because obviously there’s nothing in front of him.

Don’t any if you guys see that he’s staring at a freakin’ alien??

You must be new here

Ken Russel’s Last of the Teddy Girls

"Russell scouts the streets of post-war London and takes both candid and posed shots of young girls dressed in the classic teddy girl uniform: blazers, trousers and ‘manly’ haircuts. It was one of the first of its kind as portraying the youth culture which, in the 1950s, was just getting underway." TRIBU Magazine Article

They look so intense, as if to say “don’t mess with me.”
