Ships trapped in Suez Canal, Six-Day War

Fifteen ships trapped in the Suez Canal as a result of the Six-Day War (5-10 June 1967) between Israel and Egypt. Although the war was short, the Canal was blocked at both ends and the ships were trapped in the Great Bitter Lake section between 1967 and 1975. The ships were nicknamed the Yellow Fleet because of the desert sand which covered them as time went on. Crew members of different nationalities got together to provide mutual support, organising social events, sporting competitions, film screenings, church services, etc. Seen here are crew members playing a game the deck of a ship, with other ships visible in the distance. . Date: 1970s

Invention of the Cube Car

Invention of the Cube Car. This box-like car, designed by French-Vietnamese designer and engineer Quasar Kahn (seen here driving), was produced in limited numbers between 1967 and 1968 by Universal Power Drives of Perivale, Middlesex, who also made the Unipower sports car. The car had a unique cube-like appearance, with sliding glass doors. It is probably unique amongst car designs in being wider than it is long. The seats were plastic and inflatable. The engine was a four cylinder 1100 cc BMC model with automatic transmission. Modified Mini subframes carried the suspension components and 10-inch Mini wheels were used. Date: 1967
