Flying for the Summer Week-end by C.E. Turner

Illustration from 1928 by C.E. Turner reflecting the growing rise of civilian flying in the 1920s. The caption reads,'...only last month there was a house-party at which the ten guests (all owners of planes) arrived from London and Canterbury in five Moths and a Widgeon. The landings were made in the host's grounds, and the little flying-machines were housed in the ordinary car garages. On the Sunday, the host adn hostess, accompanying their guests, the whole party flew from Cirencester to Lambourne Down, in Berkshire, for a picnic. Our drawing does not illustrate a particular event, at which Mr and Mrs. Fitzgerald, or Marsden Manor, Cirencester, were the hosts but it is typical

Titanic - How Ice Blink reveals the presence of bergs Featured Print

Titanic - How Ice Blink reveals the presence of bergs

Diagram in The Sphere during the inquiry into the Titanic disaster showing how ice blink reveals the presence of bergs underneath the water. The term ice blink, in common use with polar explorers describes the reflecting capacity of granulated portions of berg in contradistinction to the darkness of clear ice. Under favourable conditions, icebergs appear to glow with this blink, an effect which can be detected when the berg is on the far-distant horizon. Under unfortunate conditions, the berg may give forth no blink and in the case of the Titanic there was also the absence of a phosphorescent line round the berg which would have helped to indicate the nearness of ice. The depth below water is calculated on the assumption that six-sevenths of the berg are below the water-line. Date: 1912
