Description

"What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you? Food is at once the stuff of life and a potent symbol; it binds us to the earth, to our families, and to our cultures. In this class, we explore many of the fascinating issues that surround food as both material fact and personal and cultural symbol. We read essays by Toni Morrison, Michael Pollan, Wendell Berry, and others on such topics as family meals, eating as an "agricultural act" (Berry), slow food, and food's ability to awaken us to "our own powers of enjoyment" (M. F. K. Fisher). We will also read Pollan's most recent book, In Defense of Food, and discuss the issues it raises as well as "What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you?

Wilhelmina Fletcher, arrested for stealing

Description

Name: Wilhelmina Fletcher Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 August 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-41-Wilhelmina Fletcher The Shields Daily News for 22 August 1906 reports: ?At North Shields Police Court today? Wilhelmina Fletcher (30), a married woman, was charged with having, between Aug.17 1905 and Aug. 14 1906, stolen a silver watch and gold albert, a silver brooch, three fancy quilts, half a dozen tea spoons, half a dozen pillow cases, three linen sheets, three blankets and other articles, valued at 6 10s, the property of Jane Robertson, a widow, living at 58 Stephenson Street. The prosecutrix said the accused and her husband had a furnished room taken from her. She missed some bedclothes and taxed the accused with having taken them and she admitted having done so. Sergt. Hall said the accused went to the police station and gave herself up. From what she said witness went to 58 Stephenson Street and ascertained from the prosecutrix that the accused statements were true. Witness recovered the property which had been pledged for 1 19s 3d. The accused said she had been short of money but she intended to redeem the goods. The Deputy Clerk (Mr A. E. Kidd) said that this was a plea of not guilty and the court would have no alternative to committing the prisoner for trial. Subsequently she pleaded guilty in order that she might be dealt with summarily and expressed her sorrow. The husband came forward and said he was somewhat irregularly employed but he had invariably been in a position to give his wife sufficient for domestic requirements. There were no children. The Chairman: ?Does your wife drink?? The husband: ?Occasionally.? The Chairman, addressing the accused, said the Bench would credit her with the fact that she had given herself up to the police and would deal leniently with her. They would commit her to prison for one month in the second division. Applications by the pawnbrokers for the refunding of the money advanced on the goods were granted in this case.? These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1).

James White, seaman, arrested for thefts from the Tyne Sailors' Home

Description

Name: James White Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 13 March 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-258-James White The Shields Daily News for 19 March 1915 reports: ?THEFTS FROM TYNE SAILORS? HOME. James White (21), a seaman, of Bishop Auckland, was charged at North Shields today with having stolen between March 5th and 6th, from a cubicle at the Tyne Sailors? Home, a quantity of clothing, provisions and other goods, valued at 30s, the property of Albert Smith, a boarder at the home, and further with having stolen on the 11th inst., from another cubicle, a macintosh coat and other goods, valued at 1 8s, the property of Robert Jensen, a clerk at the home. Chief Constable Huish said that defendant had been convicted at Bishop Auckland for larceny and false pretences. Defendant said he had been in the Wellesley Training Ship for six years and left three years ago. He pleaded guilty to each charge and had nothing further to say. The Bench committed him to prison for one month on each charge?. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

Description

Name: Isabella McQue alias Hubbart Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 18 February 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-250-Isabella McQue AKA Hubbart The Shields Daily News for 24 February 1915 reports: ?THEFT OF A SEALSKIN COAT. Today at North Shields, Isabella McQue or Hubbard (40) was charged with stealing an imitation sealskin coat, value 1 10s, the property of Cissie Diaz, 18 Mill Street, on January 14th. The prosecutrix stated that on the date mentioned she met the prisoner in Duke Street, who told her that she had just come from Edinburgh. Witness took her into her own house and sent her on an errand. Witness then went into a neighbour?s house and looking out of the window saw the prisoner going along the street wearing the imitation sealskin coat. She gave information to the police. Emma Bell, second-hand dealer, said that a woman came to her shop a month ago with the coat produced and said she had been singing in the streets and a lady had given her the coat, but it was too showy and she asked witness to exchange it for another one. Witness did so, feeling sorry for the woman. Detective Mason stated that he saw the accused at 40 Church Way and told her he was making enquiries about the stolen coat. She at first denied that she knew anything about it but afterwards said she stole it and left it at a second-hand shop on the road to Newcastle. Accused made her 31st appearance. Since 1911, however, she had been in a situation at Edinburgh. She was committed for one month?.
