Lecture on Stephen Gray's discoveries in electricity

A lecture at the Charterhouse, London on Stephen Gray's discoveries in electricity. In the early eighteenth century, Gray demonstrated that charges of electricity could be conducted by some materials for distances as great as 765 feet, while others did not conduct electricity at all. Eventually, he was able to send charges through 88 metres of wire suspended on silken threads to operate an electroscope - an instrument used to detect static electricity. By sending an electrical signal from one place to another, Gray established the basic principle of the electric telegraph.

Royal wedding 1893 - the wedding dress material

The pattern of the wedding dress was selected by the bride herself, Princess May of Teck(later the Duchess of York, then Queen Mary)(1867-1953). The pattern is composed of groups of shamrock, rose, thistle, lily of the valley and orange blossom, tied with ribbon. The design is produced by white silk tissue and silver metal threads intermixed with terry effects on rich white satin ground. The dress was woven at the East London Silk Mills at the factory of Warner and sons, 9 Newgate Street. The silk for the warp and weft was specially dyed by Thomas Wardle, of Leek. See picture 10503704 for the weaving of the fabric.
