Listorama: British press photography assignments

Via The Independent and then When Saturday Comes, explaining last month's archive photo of Newcastle supporters in 1932 by James Jarche ("a personality whose list of assignments read like a social history"). Assignments Jarche undertook included:

* the manufacture of penicillin
* developing the jet engine
* dancing the can-can
* digging for coal
* life in Hyde Park
* copperworks in Swansea
* beauty contests at the seaside
* chemical laboratories
* motor racing
* expanding the London Underground
* Roman pageants
* Kipper Girls in Scotland
* Amy Johnson's airplane
* King George V's coronation
* the launch of the QEII

and by all accounts there were more.
