The Illustrated London News: The Great War One Hundred Years Ago

  I was recently contacted by a contributor who wanted to run a segment on Passed Time involving The Illustrated London News. Considering the Great War was ongoing 100 years ago today, his idea was to match the corresponding TILN with its modern date to illustrate global events.

  The folks here at Passed Time thought this was a great idea and nearly ran with it, thinking The Illustrated London News was out of copyright. Whoa. It is not. It ceased publication in 2003 (after beginning in 1842), but it is still owned by Illustrated London News, LTD. Furthermore, someone else already had this idea. 

   Although it is never the intent here at Passed Time to take other's ideas, we do want to recognize those who have the ideas. Furthermore, it seems many are not aware of the existence of The Illustrated London News. I showed the copy I had been sent to a group of computer operators and everyone thought it was an impressive piece of work. So check it out, at The Illustrated First World War

   The entire run of The Illustrated London News is available through subscription at Gale Digital Collections

Jim Kennard and Roger Pawlowski, both of the Rochester area, said the wreck of the Bay State is in water hundreds of feet deep, about seven miles off Fair Haven in central New York, 155 miles west of Albany....Read More

   It seems one "Jimmie" Wheelan had a real thing for Eleanor Menne. As I stated in part one, I prefer to remember them as kids, and kids in love, so have done no further research. However, if you can share any information, readers always enjoy hearing about it. Personally, I'd love to know if Jimmie got the girl. Enjoy, Pat Earnest, Delaware 16 October 2015.

Virginia Tech was not the worst school massacre in U.S. history. This was.

That spring morning in 1927 could not have been more beautiful, one of the students would later recall. The Bath Consolidated School just outside East Lansing, Mich., was holding final exams, but before the morning bell rang on May 18, 1927, children ran and played outside. Peals of laughter could be heard.
