Funeral of Queen Victoria - 1901 When Great Britain's Queen Victoria died at age 81 in 1901, it marked the end of a record reign lasting more than 63 years. Some historians claim the end of the Victorian Era also was the end of the heyday of the British Empire. Here is British Pathe's newsreel footage of Victoria's funeral cortege. Look at the enormous crowds lining the route.

Ampersand - The 27th Letter of the Alphabet There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, right? That's only the modern count. For many years the ampersand was considered the 27th. Nineteenth-century text books almost always had the ampersand listed as an additional letter. According to scholars, the ampersand was created by combining the letters E and T, which forms the French word for "and": "et". Today is it considered bad form to write an ampersand in place of the word "and" in any scholarly work. It survives mostly in business names such as Barnes & Noble. The word ampersand comes from a corruption of the phrase "and per se and" that concluded the recitation of the alphabet in the 19th century.

Nine European Monarchs in One Photo The funeral of Great Britain's King Edward VII in 1910 drew an impressive array of European nobility. The cream of the imperial crop were the nine European monarchs who attended the rites. They were photographed at Windsor Castle on May 20, 1910. Standing, from left to right: King Haakon VII of Norway, Tsar Ferdinand of the Bulgarians, King Manuel II of Portugal and the Algarve, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and Prussia, King George I of the Hellenes and King Albert I of the Belgians. Seated, from left to right: King Alfonso XIII of Spain, King George V of the United Kingdom and King Frederick VIII of Denmark. The First World War, revolutions, and other political changes would change the face of Europe in the years to come. Monarchies, for the most part, were doomed to outright extinction or relegated to mere ceremonial posts.

Pin Boys Before bowling alleys became automated, tedious manual labor was required to reset the pins after each frame. This photo of 'pin boys' was taken circa 1914.

Laurel and Hardy Hide a Goat The last silent movie made by Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy was Angora Love (1929). A goat follows Stan and Ollie home from a pet shop, so they decide to keep it and hide it from their ill-tempered landlord (Edgar Kennedy). In this clip, the boys realize the goat has an unpleasant odor, so they decide to give it a bath.

Harold Lloyd Bomb Mishap - 1919 On August 24, 1919, ascending silent movie comedian Harold Lloyd arrived at Pathe Studios to begin a publicity campaign to celebrate his new contract. He was posing for some publicity stills--unaware that such a seemingly benign activity was about to dramatically change his life. In one posed shot Lloyd was supposed to light a prop bomb with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. (The image supposedly played up Lloyd's typical devil-may-care attitude in his films.) Unbeknownst to anyone in the studio, some actual bombs from another film--which had been rejected for being too dangerous--had been placed in a box among some dummy bombs. The photographer innocently handed Lloyd one of the live bombs. When the fuse was lit, Lloyd sensed something was mildly wrong because it produced excessive smoke that would surely ruin any photographs. Just as Lloyd discarded the bomb on a nearby table, it exploded. Miraculously Lloyd was not killed as the blast ripped open a a 16-foot swath in the room. Nevertheless, Lloyd suffered numerous facial injuries and temporarily lost his eyesight. Only when extreme pain set in did Lloyd become aware that his right thumb and forefinger had been severed. He spent six weeks in a hospital recovering. He was overwhelmed by the number of fan letters which he said helped him overcome his depression about the accident. In all his subsequent films Lloyd wore a special prosthetic device concealed within a white glove to make it look like his right hand was absolutely normal. Lloyd did not want to dwell on his injury as he did not want moviegoers to watch his films due to pity. Lloyd continued to engage in very active physical comedy routines despite the handicap. His famous building-climbing scene in Safety Last occurred after the bomb accident--making it all the more incredible. Some years ago I posted Lloyd's 1953 mystery guest appearance on What's My Line. His deformed hand can clearly be seen when he shakes hands with the WML panelists as he departs.
