Registering the finish of a horse race by photograph
A photograph of how the finish of a horse race is photographed. In order to terminate any dispute about the winner in a race, the first horse breaks a tight wire operating the apparatus. Automatically the photographic plate is then impressed. This picture was taken at a French race course where the equipment was being tested.

Peary and Cook dispute over the North Pole
Robert Peary and Frederick Cook dispute over who reached the North Pole first -- but the real question is whether either of them got there at all. Another question is, what are penguins doing in the Arctic?
