The Arrival of the First Thor Ballistic Missile to RAF Bom

Photograph of the delivery of first Thor Ballistic Missile to an RAF Base in Norfolk, 19th September 1958. Sixty-five feet long, it was carried to the site from a nearby American base on a 90 foot long transporter. The Thor's nuclear war-head was retained by the Americans and any British decision to launch this missile would have been subject to American approval. RAF Regiment guards can be seen in the foreground, ready to deter any naughty ideas

The Sea Messenger, 1870

Engraving of the Sea Messenger, a lifeboat designed for ships letters and papers, invented by J.A.R. Vandenbergh. As many ships carried mail and state papers, there was always a chance that vitally important paperwork could be lost in a shipwreck.

Landing Oranges at Fresh Wharf, London Bridge, 1874 Featured 22 Jun 2004 Image

Landing Oranges at Fresh Wharf, London Bridge, 1874

Engraving showing the belly of a cargo ship, being unloaded of oranges at Fresh Wharf, London. The oranges, in rectangular crates, are being lifted out of the hold by winches then carried ashore by dockworkers. In this picture one can clearly see the large cushions the dockers wore over their head and shoulders, in order to protect them from the crates that they carried on their heads. The oranges were a special cargo brought to London, from warmer climes, just in time for Christmas
