1928 — Eric Gill’s pencil and ink drawings for Gill Sans, the fifth best-selling typeface of the twentieth century. Gill (1882-1940), a British sculptor, stonecarver, printmaker and typeface designer, designed Gill Sans in 1926–1928 for Monotype at the request of Stanley Morison, who was interested in a contemporary sans serif face with British character. by janell

Charles "Lucky" Luciano set up the Commission, where the bosses of the most powerful crime families would have equal say and vote on important matters and solve disputes between families. By mid-century, there were 26 official Commission-sanctioned Mafia crime families, each based in a different city (except for the Five Families which were all based in New York). by kay

Tapering, fluted legs lend it the airy expansiveness of the traditional library tables upon which the earliest partner's desks were based. by alisa

The Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara. Part of the Romanov family jewels, it was spirited out of Russia after the Revolution and purchased by Queen Mary in 1921. It originally had pearls in the circles, which were removed and replaced with emeralds. A copy was made without the emeralds. Camilla has been seen wearing the emerald version of this crown. by blanca

Fashion in the period 1650-1700 in Western European clothing is characterised by rapid change. Following the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Restoration of England's Charles II, military influences in men's clothing were replaced by a brief period of decorative exuberance which then sobered into the coat, waistcoat and breeches costume that would reign for the next century and a half. by adele

Vietnamese was formerly written using the Chinese writing system with indigenous pronunciation. Currently, the written language uses a Latin based alphabet, quốc ngữ. Originally a Romanization of Vietnamese, it was codified in the 17th century by a Jesuit missionary. Under French colonial rule, the script became official and required for all public documents in 1910 by issue of French decree. By the end of the first half of the 20th century virtually all writings were done in quốc ngữ. by kerry

Golf Balls Were Originally Made of Wood! Here’s a fun fact: some of the first golf balls were made entirely of hardwood, such as beech and box trees. These balls appeared during the 14th century and remained in use until the 17th century. Of course, a typical wooden golf ball would only last for a few games before it needed to be replaced. by brigitte

Kåldomar (stuffed cabbage rolls) are a great Swedish classic often served as a midweek meal, but also served as part of a Christmas buffet. They were first introduced into Sweden at the beginning of the 18th century after Karl XII invaded Turkey. His soldiers took stuffed vine leaves back to Sweden and replaced the vine leaves with cabbage leaves. by June Kelley Roper

The eighteenth century monied male was often a peacock, eager to display his taste and wealth, and fond of lavishly decorated or patterned fabrics, and bright striking colours. The usual outfit remained the three piece suit of coat, waistcoat and breeches until 1800, when trousers began to replace breeches. Fashionable suits were usually plain woollen facecloth for practical urban or rural wear; woven silks for more formal evening occasions; and highly trimmed and embroidered silk satins and velvets for court wear. Waistcoats were sleeved until the 1740s, then sleeveless as today, and they were often embroidered to match the coat. Looser banyans or gowns were worn for relaxing in the home, when the wig would be replaced by a comfortable "nightcap". Working men wore jackets and waistcoats of hard-wearing fustian (cotton and linen mix) or wool, with breeches of leather or later cheap cotton corduroy, "thicksett" or velveret. by leona

Sahary Djeli in "Salome" - a belly dancer by Studio Talbot, 1920's. Not much info can be found on Sahary Djeli, except that she was a Hungarian performer who created a whole persona based on her own imagination. She claimed to have belonged to a strange sect from the Orient and that the name Sahary Djeli meant The Sorceress of the Century. Other rumours were that she was actually born on a French farm. by nellie
