Advert for the Ministry of Food 1945

'Something new in salad'. Salad making gives full scope to your powers of invention. For almost all vegetables are at home in the salad bowl, and you can try them in almost endless combinations. A crisp salad, as appetising to look at as it is to taste, is a very important item in the day's meals. Raw green vegetables are one of the riches sources of vitamin c. You'll remember that this is the vitamin that helps so much to give clear skin, bright eyes and that feeling of vigour which makes life enjoyable.

The 'Rotor' Ship 'Buckau', 1924

Photograph of the experimental 'Rotor' ship 'Buckau', on sea trials, 1924. Anton Flettner equipped the 680 ton schooner, 'Buckau', with two rotating cylindrical towers to test his Flettner 'rudder'. With the wind in the right place and the cylinders rotating, Flettner believed he could create a 'sail' that was 15 times more efficient than a canvas sail of the same size. Trials showed he was right, but the technology was not reliable enough to encourage commercial use.
