SS 'Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse', 1900

Photograph of the stern of the North German Lloyd Liner 'Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse' at sea, 1900. This liner was built by the Vulcan Shipyards at Stettin with the aim of winning the Blue Riband. Launched in 1897, by the Kaiser himself, she made the Transatlantic run in 5 days and 20 hours in the same year to claim the title. She served on the TransAtlantic run until 1914, when she was taken over by the German Navy as an auxiliary cruiser. In August of the same year, she was sunk after being attacked by HMS 'Highflyer'.

Synchronised Swimming Wedding causes quite a stir

August 1962, Kinson, Bournemouth. The wedding of Eileen Hart, 22 of New Milton and David King of Coombe Gardens, Bournemouth caused quite a stir (and claims of a publicity stunt) in the local press (and rather a lot of 'tutting' it seems) when seven of Hart's teammates from the Bournemouth Aqua Theatre's 'Big Splash' summer show posed for the wedding photographs outside the church in their swimsuits. The General Manager of the Pier Approach Baths apologised to the Vicar of St. Andrew's Church (the Rev. Alfred Loughlin) on behalf of the Baths Committee. The whole incident was closed amicably - "They are just high-spirited girls" was the verdict. Date: 1962

Map showing Dr. Frederick Cook's route to the North Pole, 19

Map showing the route taken by Dr. Frederick A. Cook and his Inuit companions, Ah-welsh and Etukishook, to the North Pole, in 1907 - 1908. The chart has been signed by the doctor, at top left. A debate has long raged over whether it was Cook or Peary who first reached the North Pole, but it seems that Dr. Cook had a good claim to be first.
