If it's split up on YouTube it's best to make a playlist there first and then link to the first clip. Otherwise you eat up space here.

Note to self: Housekeeping long overdue here ...

That footage from 1897 is amazing Trike, and so different from what we have come to expect these days.

Apart from the, expected, silence the camera is stationary. I kept expecting it to follow the carriages. The horses and riders on parade were also a lot more casual than today, none of that stiffness and precision. With chatting between the riders and the horses weren't nearly so well trained or behaved either.

There were a few versions of it ID, I chose the sepia footage because it seemed clearer.

This might interest you as well, a compilation of very early photographs;

Triceratops,

watched the german newsreel and did some quick research about Operation Cerberus:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_Dash

But in the German news reel:

http://reshistorica.historyboard.net/t212-historical-youtubes

they spoke about a "regierungswechsel" (a change in cabinet?). Don't find it in the English wikipedia. Perhaps was it not true and only German propaganda?

I have no time to do further research.But if you want to discuss it further here or in a new thread I am your man.

Kind regards and with esteem,

Paul.

Hello Paul,

I think the cabinet reshuffle mentioned in the newsreel had more to do with the loss of Singapore rather than the Channel Dash. Churchill's position as PM was not as secure as is generally believed,especially in February 1942, and there were rivals in the shape of Anthony Eden and Stafford Cripps.

There is a bit more about it in this link;

Embarassed Triceratops,

forgot that perhaps only a few of the contributors understand French. Excuses again to all the readers of this message.

To compensate a little bit my error I post some photographs from the US Civil War:

ID,

In the bar you requested something on the Ottomans, try looking at these, as they probably would be more interesting than any of my prose.

1936 might have been right-wing, but this one was just right embarrassing;



I love the bit when everyone hides behind giant flags (including the Welsh one for some reason) and there isn't a sinner left in the stadium, the only discernible movement being the traffic on the freeway behind. Spooky stuff.

In contrast to the above this is not at all cheerful. Sorry. But it did rather come to mind while reading the "early balloons" thread and writing about poor Mme Blanchard.
