"Commemorating a Legacy: Celebrating the Centenary of Horrockses Crewdson & Co" In this captivating illustration, Railway Ribaldry by W Heath Robinson, we are transported back to a time when steam engines ruled the tracks. As we delve deeper into history, another significant event comes to light - the ANZAC Preview Australian Light Horse. This poignant moment reminds us of the bravery and sacrifice made by our soldiers. Shifting gears, let's explore The Centenary of the Smithfield Club Cattle Show, 1798-1897 (litho). This lithograph captures the grandeur and significance of an event that spanned almost a century. It serves as a testament to our agricultural heritage and showcases how far we have come in livestock exhibitions. As we sail through time on H. M. S. Victory flying the famous signal on 21 October 1905, it is impossible not to feel awe-struck by its historical importance. This iconic ship symbolizes triumph and resilience throughout centuries. The beauty of remembrance continues with 5000 Poppies - a heartfelt tribute honoring those who served their countries during times of war. Each poppy represents a life lost or forever changed; it is an emotional reminder that sacrifices should never be forgotten. Moving closer to home, GLC-LFB Centenary Royal Review at Lambeth HQ takes center stage. This celebration pays homage to London's firefighters who have risked their lives for over one hundred years in service to their community – true heroes indeed. Across continents lies The Centennial International Exhibition of 1876 in Philadelphia – an extraordinary gathering showcasing innovation from around the world. It was here that ideas were exchanged and progress flourished; truly marking an era where human ingenuity knew no bounds. Aa Parmentier / P Journal brings us back down memory lane with King George VI at his desk in naval uniform, 1942.
