    The Olympic [along with sister ship the Brittanic] rarely gets mentioned but oddly enough it was shown on tv yesterday!
    cant remember which programme may even of been the news but the presenter showed what she looks like now and interviewed the current owner who bought it from the british goverment.

    Spooky. I never actually saw that. I also forgot to add a curious little snippet I read a while ago about the alternative story behind the Titanic and the Olympic. Interesting reading.

    Correct. Along with many others. Between 1903 and 1908 Ford produced the Models A, B, C, F, K, N, R, and S, in very small numbers (compared with today) before introducing the 'mass produced' Model T in 1908.

    It certainly is. And Jesse Bowers has some detailed info and lots more pictures about it here.

    A daguerreotype of Robert Schumann taken in 1850.



    The only known photo of Frederic Chopin, taken in 1849.



    Johannes Brahms in 1853.



    And him with Johann Strauss II some time in the 1890s.

    Inaugural German Grand Prix - Nurburgring July 17, 1927 (the first Grand Prix at the ‘Ring)

    Of the three Mercedes shown here, car #1, which won the race being driven by Otto Merz, is the only surviving car of the 8 S-Type Sportwagens.
