The first half of the 20th century: The Yellow Kid, set in a large single scene, not a narrative strip, was the first continuous comic character in the United States. Outcault established earthy, strictly urban farce as the keynote of the early American strip, which thereafter grew in sophistication and sentimentality. The Yellow Kid also standardized the speech balloon, which had largely fallen into disuse since the 17th century and its occasional appearance in the English caricatural strip about In Rudolph Dirks , at the instigation of Hearst, who as a child had enjoyed the work of Busch, worked up a strip based on Max and Moritz, called the Katzenjammer Kids, which proved an instant success. It survived in syndication into the 21st century, under its sixth author. The market-driven tendency to continue strips in their formula if not their spirit after the death of the original author s has given extraordinary longevity to many strips that should have died a natural death; most decline into prolonged senility before being finally scrapped.

Clark — See all books below and on Amazon here: New April 28, Lessons From The Gibson Girl traces the Gibson Girl as she captured the admiration of both men and women with seductive yet thought-provoking humor in the early 20th century. Even though a century has passed since the provocative, yet comedic art touched millions of readers, many of the problems she tackled are still visible on today’s stage. Lessons also provides a interesting look at the fashions of the early 20th century, ones you may find in old family pictures.

That is actually how the book became an idea, as I was researching 20th century fashions. More than illustrations are historically accurate of the time period, all published in popular magazines and journals of the time.

The Hall is a vestige of the main room in castles and other great medieval buildings such as Westminster Hall. All traditional Oxford and Cambridge Colleges have them – the colleges have retained the tradition of everyone eating together, as have the Inns of Court and many public ie private schools.

Such halls are often now called Great Halls or Dining Halls since the idea of a hall has changed to no more than an entrance or vestibule. Until recently, before Health and Safety moved in, it was normal practice for undergraduates to walk over the tables to get to their benches on the other side of the table.

Mathematician Alan Turing’s theory for a ‘universal machine’, which forms the basis for all modern computing, has been voted the greatest British innovation of the 20th Century Mathematician Alan Turing’s theoretical basis for all modern computers known as the ‘universal machine’ has been voted the greatest British innovation of the past century in a new poll.

The famous computer scientist came up with the theory, on which all modern computing is based, in a paper ‘on computable numbers’ in He described a device that would read symbols on a tape and proposed that the tape could be used to program the machine. The ‘universal machine’ came top of a poll to find the greatest British innovation of the past years. More than 50, votes were entered with Turing’s theory securing 18 per cent – just one per cent ahead of the BMC Mini. Changing the course of history: After the war, Alan Turing created the first practical designs for a stored-program computer called the Automatic Computing Engine ACE , pictured The ‘universal machine’ theory laid the foundations for the first ever practical design for a stored-program computer which is still used today Following the war, Turing moved to the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington.

Printed mount notations such as photographer’s identification and title are fairly reliable, but can still provide false information. Dating by mount type and style provides a rough indicator for identifying images. The caveat is that many photographers, particularly in more remote areas, failed to keep up to photographic fashion and used old mounts until their stocks were exhausted.

Also, photographers reprinted historically or commercially important images long after they were originally taken. Also negatives were often sold or copied and the mount information may not accurately reflect the history of the images. Flanders views of Prescott taken in the Spring of appear on Williscraft mounts in the late s and Continent mounts into the mid s Notations on the mounts can occasionally provide additional information about the image, but should always be verified by other sources before being relied on.

Ecological impact of the dingo after its arrival in Mainland Australia The thylacine is likely to have become near-extinct in mainland Australia about 2, years ago, and possibly earlier in New Guinea. Doubts exist over the impact of the dingo since the two species would not have been in direct competition with one another as the dingo hunts primarily during the day , whereas it is thought that the thylacine hunted mostly at night.

In addition, the thylacine had a more powerful build, which would have given it an advantage in one-on-one encounters. The thylacine was also much less versatile in diet than the omnivorous dingo. The adoption of the dingo as a hunting companion by the indigenous peoples would have put the thylacine under increased pressure.
