In the year 1882, history witnessed a myriad of remarkable events and influential figures that left an indelible mark on society. Four of the Eddystone Lighthouses stood tall, guiding ships through treacherous waters with their unwavering beacons. Meanwhile, Virginia Woolf penned her thoughts and unleashed her literary prowess upon the world in 1930. Charles Darwin, renowned for his groundbreaking theory of evolution, continued to challenge conventional wisdom in 1882. His relentless pursuit of knowledge led him to explore the depths of nature's mysteries alongside a lookalike ape by his side. A thought-provoking American cartoon from this era depicted John Bull as an octopus of imperialism, symbolizing England's insatiable hunger for land across continents. This powerful image served as a stark reminder of unchecked power and its consequences. Queen Victoria sat at her desk during this time, ruling over an empire that spanned vast territories around the globe. Her reign was characterized by both progress and challenges faced by a rapidly changing world. Bolton Priory nestled peacefully in Wharfedale, North Yorkshire—a testament to centuries-old architectural marvels that continue to captivate visitors even today. Anthony Trollope's Century captured the essence of this era through his timeless literature. Oscar Wilde graced New York City with his presence in 1882—an Irish poet whose wit and dramatic flair enchanted audiences worldwide. Photographed by Napoleon Sarony, he epitomized artistic brilliance amidst a bustling metropolis. The Pepper's Ghost Illusion mesmerized audiences with its ethereal spectacles—a visual trickery that blurred reality and fiction seamlessly on stage during this period. Notably, F. D Roosevelt embarked on his political journey while Ilz documented it all through their lens in 1932—ushering in new hope amid challenging times for America.
