[Broadside]: Souvenir In Loving Memory of the Men, Women and Children Killed in The London Air Raid on Wednesday, June 13th, 1917
London: S. Burgess, 1917. Near Fine. Souvenir broadside or napkin. Approximately 14" x 13.5" Printed in black, pink and blue on thin Japanese paper or tissue. Contemporarily mounted on salmon-colored cardstock. Very small tears and very faint bleed through from glue used in mounting, very near fine. A commemoration, "With the Compliment of J. H. O. Toole, 'The Golden Lion' Rayleigh," of the first daylight air raid of London, and the most effective German air raid of the War, with among other targets, landed three direct hits on Liverpool Street Station. According to this broadside 104 were killed, and 527 injured in total, but in reality the numbers were greater. This broadside lists the names and ages of a score of small children who were killed in the raid. Souvenir napkins survive to some degree, but seldom in nice condition, because of the thin material and because they were usually stored folded. We acquired a few napkins where the owner had the forethought to mount them, probably almost immediately. (Inventory #: 413913)
