H L Oakley

Each year, between 1920 and 1958, holidaymakers walking along the pier at Llandudno on the coast of North Wales, could have stopped at a booth to have their silhouette portrait cut by Mr H. L. Oakley, otherwise known as the man with the magic scissors. He served as a Captain in the 8th Yorkshire Regiment during the First World War and after the war, he returned full-time to silhouette art dividing his time between portraiture, magazine and commercial work.

The On Call in Africa Collection

A unique set of images from the fascinating collection of Dr N.P. Jewell, documenting his time as a young doctor in the Seychelles (1910-14), as a Medical Officer in the army in East Africa during the First World War, and in Kenya working in the Colonial Medical Service (1920-32). The photographs are featured in a recently-published book On Call in Africa, in War and Peace, 1910-1932, a remarkable account based on Dr Jewell's official medical diaries and personal memoirs, and include some terrific scenes of life in wartime Kenya and Tanzania. There's more about the book and Norman Jewell himself at www.oncallinafrica.com
