Moscow Uprising - Damage to buildings Featured 18 Apr 2011 Image

Moscow Uprising - Damage to buildings

Between 5th and 7th December, there was a general strike by Russian workers. The government sent in troops on 7th December, and a bitter street-by-street fight began in Moscow. A week later the Semenovskii Regiment was deployed, using artillery to break-up demonstrations and to shell workers districts. On 18th December, with around a thousand people dead and parts of the city in ruins, the workers surrendered. After a final spasm in Moscow, the uprisings ended in December 1905. This postcard shows damage to the Presnia District during the uprising. Date: 1905

Standard Bread Campaign Featured 18 Apr 2011 Image

Standard Bread Campaign

The story of the Standard Bread Campaign began in 1880 when Mary Anne Yates Corkling (using the name May Yates) formed the Bread Reform League. The wind and water powered mills of Great Britain were being displaced by industrial roller mills. Bread was being produced from fine white flour (just the starch content of the wheat) rather than the robust wheat meal produced by the traditional millers. Yates was concerned that the poor were being denied the nutritional benefit of traditional bread. The Bread Reform League had support from the medical profession and Yates campaigned on this and related food reform subjects for more than 30 years. Date: 1911

Where Richard Montgomery fell, Quebec

A sign showing the location where Richard Montgomery, a brigadier-general in the Continental Army (during the American Revolutionary War) fell whilst leading the failed 1775 invasion of Canada. The invasion was the first major military initiative by the newly-formed Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. The objective of the campaign was to gain military control of the British Province of Quebec, and convince the French-speaking Canadians to join the revolution on the side of the Thirteen Colonies. General Guy Carleton opposed Montgomery at Quebec and his success is marked by the lower sign. Date: circa 1910s
