Cottingley Fairies - “Elsie with a winged gnome.” August, 1917.  A photograph of Elsie Wright (1901-1988) taken by Frances Griffiths (1907-1986) using Elsie's father Arthur's Midg quarter-plate camera, in September 1917. This photograph is the second in the 'Cottingley Fairies' series.  Elsie sits in the garden as a gnome dances towards her. At the time, this photograph provoked a bizarre public discussion.  If studied closely, the point of a hat pin in the gnome's stomach - used to keep the cut-out standing - can be seen. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), after examining the print, concluded that this pin point was a navel - sparking a discussion on methods of birth in the fairy kingdom.  The story of the Cottingley Fairies began as a practical joke in Cottingley, near Bradford, West Yorkshire in 1917. The photographs of the 'Beck Fairies', as the girls called them, went on to become one of the most famous examples of image falsification in the history of photography. Alice was the name given to Frances and Iris was a name for Elsie by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) in an attempt to conceal the identity of the girls he published the photographs.
