Tame animals of Mr Wingfield Ampthill child beside a saddled pig, Agence Rol. Agence photographique, 1914, Bibliothèque Nationale de France , Public Domain Mark

A child riding a hog, doctors trying to locate a bullet using a telephone probe, David Bowie performing with a pirate eye patch, and before and after pictures of nose jobs from the early 20th century. Not strange enough? What about professional rat-catchers from Liverpool at work or people painting the Eiffel Tower by hand?

This exhibition takes you on a journey to the past; the past like you’ve never seen it before.
