Engineering survey using divers - The Trans-Baikal Railway

The Trans-Baikal Railway - a subsidiary of the Russian Railways headquartered in Chita and serving Zabaykalsky Krai and Amur Oblast. The mainline was built between 1895 and 1905 as part of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Here, divers are being used to survey the riverbed prior to the construction of a railway bridge. Hazards faced for the tens of thousands of workers employed in the construction of the railway included the complex terrain, crossed by ridges, rivers and swamps, permafrost, low winter temperatures, and natural disasters. Date: 1907

M.C.C. Cricket tour in Australia

Fingleton batting for New South Wales, hit by a rising ball from Voce. Bradman supports him; the Nawab of Pataudi is picking up his bat, while Ames and Jardine are walking across. During that tour, D.R. Jardine, the MCC Captain, used the pace of Larwood to employ 'leg theory' (also known as 'bodyline' bowling). Although successful on the cricket field, the tactic was deemed unsportsmanlike by many Australians and soured Anglo-Australian relations. Date: 1933

Roscoff, Finistere, Brittany, France - Ancient Fig Tree

Brittany, France - Ancient Fig Tree in a convent garden at Roscoff, Finistere, dating back to 1610. The expanse of branches is supported by rowsof grante props. Its extremely numerous figs were sold in all the neighbouring markets. Tragically, the tree was cut down in 1987 during a modernisation spree - a horticultural tragedy in my book, especially as it was removed for the construction of a (non-defunct) car park. Date: circa 1910
