Mad Dog Coll, a former protege of Dutch Schultz, was planning to kidnap a Schultz underling. Things didn’t go as Coll planned, and a shootout ensued. Coll fired his machine gun repeatedly, missing his target but hitting Michael Vengalli in the stomach. He died instantly. Coll got his due in February 1932.

"Present at the discussion [on sexism and education] were 32 women & 5 men. …the tape revealed that the men talked over 50% of the time, and [also] that what the men wanted to talk about–and the way in which they wanted to talk–was given precedence. [...] There's no doubt that in this context at least it was the 5 males who were defining the parameters. ...Considerable pressure was applied by the males–and accepted [by the] females–to confine

Advocata Nostra, the oldest icon of Mary in Rome, at the Dominican Sisters Convent on Via Trionfale on Monte Mario. This icon can be traced back to its origin in Jerusalem, where tradition has it that it was painted by St Luke after the Resurrection, at the request of the apostles.

This image was really cool, I loved the clean cut layout of this image. How the shelves of the camera's are set so perfectly in the centre of the white wall, the desk/cupboard at the bottom adds an element to the image that makes it more interesting.

1775-1800 British Memorial locket at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - This piece stood out to me because the woman shown on it is Britannia. I have not seen her image on mourning jewellery many times before, but when I have, the implication is that the deceased died in service to the country.

His Queen, Berengaria of Navarre, never stepped foot in England. This is a 13th century image of Richard being anointed.
