How to Use a Colonial Era Printing Press
 
01:30
At the 2012 California Antiquarian Book Fair we met up with the International Printing Museum and they demonstrated how an old style printing press works. Books printed before the industry was digitized would have been printed using this method. This miniature colonial style printing press, similar to what Benjamin Franklin would have used, was made in 1976. To make a print in the 1700's and 1800's you'd take these ink bulbs and dip them in the ink, and then patted them on the type. To make it easier, today we use a brayer, and roll a layer of ink across the type. The type is all set one letter at a time, composed with spacers, locked in with blocks called furniture and held together by a metal frame called a chase. If the type isn't held together tightly enough the letters will fall out as soon as pressure is applied to the press. Next you place the paper in the appropriate spot, close the press, and roll it into place. This would have been a labor intensive job with some of the big presses during the colonial days. Next you pull the devils tail, applying pressure to the type and printing your page.

Hong Kong - Metropolis in the sea
 
44:16
Hong Kong translated means "fragrant harbour". The days of the spicy smoking ceremonies have passed, but MareTV has discovered many delightful contrasts between the metropolis and Mother Nature. In for-mer times, the rare eagle wood tree grew here. Its wood put the spice into the Taoist smoking ceremonies. The fragrant harbour: what sounds so charming is today a huge metropolis in the sea. No other tiny piece of land is more densely populated. Star Ferries have been commuting between the Kowloon Peninsula and central Hong Kong for the past 125 years. The British colonial masters are long gone, but on the ancient ferries, virtually nothing has changed. Most of the ships are still clad in British Racing Green and the crew still wears the old, decorative uniforms.

The title, French and Indian War, is used in the US specifically for the warfare of 1754--1763, the colonial counterpart to the Seven Years' War in Europe. The French and Indian Wars were preceded by the Beaver Wars. In Quebec, Canada, a former French colony, the wars are generally referred to as the Intercolonial Wars. While some conflicts involved Spanish and Dutch forces, all pitted the Kingdom of Great Britain, its colonies and American Indian allies on one side against France, its colonies and Indian allies on the other. The expanding French and British colonies were contending for control of the western, or interior, territories of North America. Whenever the European countries went to war, military conflict also occurred in North America in their colonies, although the dates of the conflicts did not necessarily exactly coincide with those of the larger conflicts... The naming of conflicts after the British monarch of the day is a convention in United States history related to its early European settlement as majority-English colonies. Canadian convention uses the name of the larger European conflict (e.g. the "War of the Grand Alliance" rather than "King William's War") or refers to the wars as the Intercolonial Wars. As the wars proceeded, the military advantage moved toward the British side. This was chiefly the result of the greater population and productive capacity of the British colonies, compared with those of France. In addition, the British had the greater ability to resupply their colonies and project military power by sea. In the first three conflicts, the French were able to offset these factors largely by more effective mobilization of Native American allies, but they were finally overwhelmed in the fourth and last war. The overwhelming victory of the British played a role in eventual loss of their thirteen American colonies. Without the threat of French invasion, the American colonies saw little need for British military protection. In addition, the people resented British efforts to limit their colonization of the new French territories to the west of the Appalachian Mountains, as stated in the Proclamation of 1763, in an effort to relieve encroachment on Native American territory. These pressures contributed to the American Revolutionary War. The first three of the French and Indian Wars followed the same basic pattern: they all started in Europe and then moved to North America. Once the conflict broke out in North America, it was mostly fought by colonial militias. The final conflict broke this pattern by beginning in North America. In addition, the British used more regular troops alongside colonial militia. They returned almost none of the French territory seized during the war. France was forced to cede its extensive territory in present-day Canada and Louisiane. The British victory in the French and Indian Wars reduced France's New World empire to St. Pierre and Miquelon, two islands off Newfoundland; a few West Indian islands; and French Guiana.

Imperialism: Crash Course World History #35
 
13:46
In which John Green teaches you about European Imperialism in the 19th century. European powers started to create colonial empires way back in the 16th century, but businesses really took off in the 19th century, especially in Asia and Africa. During the 1800s, European powers carved out spheres of influence in China, India, and pretty much all of Africa. While all of the major (and some minor) powers in Europe participated in this new imperialism, England was by far the most dominant, once able to claim that the "sun never set on the British Empire." Also, they went to war for the right to continue to sell opium to the people of China. Twice. John will teach you how these empires managed to leverage the advances of the Industrial Revolution to build vast, wealth-generating empires. As it turns out, improved medicine, steam engines, and better guns were crucial in the 19th century conquests. Also, the willingness to exploit and abuse the people and resources of so-called "primitive" nations was very helpful in the whole enterprise.

The green sugar cane grass sways in the wind as if it were waves in the ocean. Spacious tea plantations alternate with beautiful parks. Usually prosperous guests spend their vacation here. But Mauritius is more than just a dream island for the rich and famous. The colonial times are over. However, the colourful culture is still marked by the former slaves and Indian immigrants. Dances like the "Sega" or the various Creole cuisine make a visit on this amazing island an unforgettable experience. The many species of animals also contribute to it.

The Quakers, the Dutch, and the Ladies: Crash Course US History #4
 
11:38
In which John Green teaches you about some of the colonies that were not in Virginia or Massachussetts. Old New York was once New Amsterdam. Why they changed it, I can say; ENGLISH people just liked it better that way, and when the English took New Amsterdam in 1643, that's just what they did. Before the English got there though, the colony was full of Dutch people who treated women pretty fairly, and allowed free black people to hold jobs. John also discusses Penn's Woods, also known as Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania was (briefly) a haven of religious freedom, and William Penn dealt relatively fairly with the natives his colony displaced. Of course, as soon as Penn died, the colonist started abusing the natives immediately. We venture as far south as the Carolina colonies, where the slave labor economy was taking shape. John also takes on the idea of the classless society in America, and the beginning of the idea of the American dream. It turns out that in spite of the lofty dream that everyone had an equal shot in the new world, there were elites in the colonies. And these elites tended to be in charge. And then their kids tended to take over when they died. So yeah, not quite an egalitarian paradise. In addition to all this, we get into the Salem Witch Trials, the treatment of women in the colonies, and colonial economics. Oh yeah, one more thing, before you comment about how he says we're talking about the American Revolution next week, but the end screen says Seven Years War, consider that perhaps the Seven Years War laid the groundwork for the revolution to happen.

John C. Reilly: Fathom the Bowl
 
03:45
From: Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys, ANTI- 2006. Buy CD: http://www.amazon.com/Rogues-Gallery-Pirate-Ballads-Chanteys/dp/B000GGSMD0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1223919205&sr=8-1/webmasterwolf Explanatory liner notes by record label ANTI-: A classic drinking song from Colonial times. To "fathom" here means to test the depth. "Punch" was once synonymous with the modern "mixed drink". Sailors used to view it as an absolute daily entitlement. The grog ration in Nelson's time contained nearly 12 ounces of rum by modern measure, daily. Wikipedia about the song: "Fathom the Bowl" is an English Drinking song, probably dating from the nineteenth century. The ingredients of punch include expensive spirits, too expensive for ordinary people. This has led to the suggestion that the song would be sung by smugglers. This might place it in the late eighteenth century or early nineteenth century. It might also explain the dead man at the bottom of the sea. On the other hand it might a song sung by wealthy middle-class young gentlemen or military officers, which gradually made its way down the social ladder. The use of the word "fathom" is the lesser used verb form, to measure the depth of something. This would rarely be used by non-sailors, which may also be taken to imply something about the lyricist. The fact that the early versions are almost identical to current versions implies that it has been valued for the simplicity of the words. It is also very compact in geographical spread. Almost all collected version are from the south of England, and none were collected outside England. The song implies a camaraderie with all those who hear the song and is ideal for singing in a chorus. Appropriately, there is a beer made by the brewery called "West Berkshire" called "Fathom the Bowl". The earliest printed broadside are Such (London, between 1863 and 1885), Fortey (London, between 1858 and 1885), Hedges (London) and Pitts (London). The song was published in 1891 in a songbook, "English Folk Songs" by William Alexander Barrett. It was collected by Baring-Gould, Cecil Sharp (1907) and George Gardiner (Hampshire 1906). There is almost no variation in the text. It is also known as "The Punch Ladle" or "Bowl Bowl".

PHILIPPINES: The Hidden History of Ancient Kingdoms and Empires
 
43:03
-This video is not an Anti-Hispanic culture documentary and doesn't aim to abolished Hispanic/American culture in Philippines, I think it's important to remember that we need to appreciate every collective culture that history has throwned to the islands of the Philippines, for it would be a monument of the richness of the country, to remind every Filipinos that many great nations with different cultures of the world have fought for it's richness but in the end it was taken back by the Filipino people, and the Filipino people alone. That way they can feel a sense of uniqueness among the other Asian cultures! i don't want this video to be misunderstood plus it could make Spain and America get away with everything they did while colonizing The Philippines, if Filipinos just erase the culture as if that part of history never happened. I personally saw it happening today. Some Spanish or even Mexican and Americans people today are rejecting the fact that they did colonized Philippines at all.

Colonial history is the only part of history that has a direct contact with the pre-colonial era as it is the sequel of the story,... if the rejection of colonial evidence(demolishing many heritage cities instead of rebuilding a replicating it) still continues, even history of colonization might even be rejected as a myth and this is very possible.

15 SHORTEST Flights In The World!
 
11:20
Astoundingly short trips you can take by plane! From hopping between exotic islands to avoiding dangerous borders here are the shortest commercial flights you could find yourself on! 15. “Toronto to Niagara Falls”- From the sparkling Canadian city of Toronto to the natural wonder that is Niagara falls is 90 miles, which by air takes only 12 minutes. Sure you can drive along the coast of Lake Ontario to get there but the near 3 hours it usually takes to go only 90 miles can be taxing. The road from Toronto to Niagara is notorious for being gridlocked or perpetually under construction. Because of this, Greater Toronto Airways began offering daily flights in eight-seater planes in September of 2016. It is pricier than the hour and a half train ride but it’s much quicker and you don’t need to bring a passport. 14. “Kinshasa to Brazzaville”- If you plan on traveling between Kinshasa, Republic of Congo and Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of the Congo you are sure to face strict border restrictions, especially if you are traveling by car. These two towns are cultural brothers but have been at odds with each other since colonial times and are separated by the raging Congo River. Most of the locals take ferries or speedboats across but this can be extremely dangerous for tourists, so the best way to travel is by air. The flight takes about 17 minutes to go the 80 miles between the airports and though it’s far more expensive you can avoid being hassled by the border patrols or thieves. What makes the relationship between the two even crazier is that they are both capitals of their respective countries, if you combine their populations it reaches over 15 million. 13. “Tangier to Gibraltar”-The Moroccan port city of Tangier and the densely populated British Territory of Gibraltar sit on each side of the mouth of the Mediterranean sea. To travel the 43 mile distance you would take a 78 seat twin-engine turboprop ATR-72 aircraft. This jaunt has a flight time of about 25 minutes and total trip time of 50 minutes. Tangier has been an African stronghold for empires throughout history who wanted to control the Mediterranean. For the same reasons, Gibraltar has been contested over on the European side. In Gibraltar, you can visit the famous Rock of Gibraltar which is a giant chunk of limestone located at the tip of the tiny peninsula. The rock has been a landmark to sailors for thousands of years warning them that they are about to hit the open ocean. The Rock itself is full of tiny tunnels and remnants of the various fortresses that were built there it is also home to a protected colony of macaques who are the only group of non-human primates in Europe that don’t live in captivity.

On the night of December 16, 1773, "The Sons of Liberty" dumped all the chests into the ocean. This defining historical event, known as the Boston Tea Party, sparked the American Revolution. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is currently overhauling and constructing two period replica ships- The Beaver and Eleanor. Dartmouth, the third ship, will be built from the bottom up.

The Atlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course World History #24
 
11:08
In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance.

The Columbian Exchange: Crash Course World History #23
 
12:09
In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate.

The Spanish once passed through Cuenca while travelling along the ancient Inca route from Cuzco to Quito. This old town is still one of the most beautiful in South America. It possesses the atmosphere and architecture of late Colonial times and is located two thousand five hundred metres above sea level. The Catedral Nueva is the finest religious building in the whole of South America and contains elements of Romantic, Gothic and Baroque architecture that dominate this huge building, both without and within.

When is Thanksgiving? Colonizing America: Crash Course US History #2
 
12:26
In which John Green teaches you about the (English) colonies in what is now the United States. He covers the first permanent English colony at Jamestown, Virginia, the various theocracies in Massachusetts, the feudal kingdom in Maryland, and even a bit about the spooky lost colony at Roanoke Island. What were the English doing in America, anyway? Lots of stuff. In Virginia, the colonists were largely there to make money. In Maryland, the idea was to create a a colony for Catholics who wanted to be serfs of the Lords Baltimore. In Massachusetts, the Pilgrims and Puritans came to America to find a place where they could freely persecute those who didn't share their beliefs. But there was a healthy profit motive in Massachusetts as well. Profits were thin at first, and so were the colonists. Trouble growing food and trouble with the natives kept the early colonies from success. Before long though, the colonists started cultivating tobacco, which was a win for everyone involved if you ignore the lung cancer angle. So kick back, light up a smoke, and learn how America became profitable. DON'T SMOKE, THOUGH! THAT WAS A JOKE! Tun on the captions, you'll like them! Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode.

Arabia Felix Vacation Travel Video Guide
 
52:14
The Republic Of Yemen: there is almost no other country on Earth that possesses as many secrets and ancient legends as the Arabia Felix and the Bab Al Yemen, the gateway to the Yemen, is the entrance to the historic district of Sanaa, the Yemen’s capital city that it is believed to date back to the third century A.D. Women are rarely to be seen in Yemen’s marketplaces and, when they are, they are hidden from male glances by a protective veil. Islam still plays an important role in the daily cultural life of the people, including the traditional market places that are almost exclusively a male domain. The Republic Of Yemen covers a large part of the southwest of the Arabian Peninsula and contains several fascinating historical sites. East of Sanaa on the ancient Frankincense route, is the town of Marib that was once the residence of the legendary Queen Of Saba and in the extreme north is the town of Sadah, a region known for its powerful tribes. In the centre of the Djebel Harraz is the picturesque mountain village of Manakhah. Due to its location it was once a strategic point on the ancient trading route between the sea and the highlands. The breathtaking architecture of its buildings still testifies to the former prosperity of a village that today is well known for its popular market. Al Hudaydah was once the most important Turkish harbour on the Red Sea. The city was a commercial rival of the British occupied city of Aden to the south which, during colonial times, was of great importance in securing a sea route to India. In addition to the recent modernisation of the harbour the fishing industry still plays an important role and the fertile coastal waters of the Red Sea still ensure a good catch. To the south of Al Hudaydah is the legendary old harbour of Al Mokha, the former centre of the country’s coffee trade from which the world renowned Mocha coffee derived its name. Despite their present poverty the people here are a proud race and the ancient name of the Yemen, Arabia Felix, or “Arabia The Content”, is still a thing of the present. -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

Follow the famous Maestro covered with his long white beard who will present The Life, The Man, The Discoverers, Explorers, Space, Americas and Our Earth ... Ever since he started walking, man has been inventing new means of transport. Rafts, canoes and paddles have been with us since the dawn of humanity, and the sail since the Neolithic age. Is it not more pleasant to drift on water, carried by currents, rather than to trod along tiring and often dangerous foot-paths ? The mediterranean region, ferment of civilisations, will long remain dominated by three great naval powers : the Cretans, Phoenetians and Mycenaeans.In 600 BC, the Egyptian Pharaoh Nechao II commissions a phoenician sailor to follow the Red Sea down to Pount, on the east coast of Africa, and circumnavigate the continent to return via the Mediterranean. A three-year long "first" of 25 000 km ! Another phoenician, Hanno of Carthage is going to travel beyond the Pillars of Hercules (the straits of Gibraltar) despite his crew's fears. For most are convinced that the Straits mark the end of the world, and that anyone venturing beyond will fall into a chasm filled of hydras and other sea-monsters... But Hanno's courage and skill take him to Senegal, and further still, to Cameroon, where the local pygmies become so attached to him that they won't let him leave ! Following in the wake of their hero Ulysses, the Greeks too have their hour of glory. It is Pytheas the astronomer, who takes off in search of the mysterious land of Thule, in the far North, where the sun never sets. He will reach Greenland, meet Lapps, witness a whale-hunt and finally understand that that the earth is not as flat as it seems... With these first steps of maritime exploration, we dive into the history of as-of-yet uncharted seas and lands, with our intrepid heros whose main objective is adventure. They are also, however, setting the foundations for all the exchanges, commerce and conquests to come. Enjoy!

First Course: Amazonia Seared Heart of Palm. Local Greens. Pickled Radish. Passion Fruit Vinaigrette. Foraged Flowers. This dish represents pre-colonial Brazil, which is represented by the use of native Brazilian ingredients, such as heart of palm and passion fruit, as well as the sea-marinade, which represents the need of pre-colonial Brazil to exploit animals for food. The greens and flowers represent the forests that were the home of early Brazilians. Amazonia is the Brazilian name for the Amazon. Second Course: Pátria Cultured Almond Ricotta. Fresh Ravioli. Cachaça-Flambeed Morels. Romanesco. Brazil Nut Cream. This dish represents what it's like to be Brazilian. Displaying modern Brazilians institutions as ravioli, the dish shows the population (morels) moving away from our pre-colonial times (romanesco) into modern society. The red ricotta filling represents the internal feelings of being Brazilian: a visceral passion and pain for a country that has so much beauty and still so much suffering. Pátria means "homeland" and is the root for "patriotism", a concept that is really complicated for most Brazilians. Third Course: Alvorada Dark Chocolate. Passion Fruit Mousse. Orange Blossom Ladyfingers. Ginger Caramel Sauce. Candied Almonds. This dish represents the hope for a better country, without suffering and injustice, and the reason why we, as Brazilians, fight. Alvorada is the sunshine, and that is represented in the dish by the hot caramel melting the chocolate in the pyramisu and displaying the passion fruit mousse, a metaphor for the sunshine.

Christopher Columbus: What Really Happened

Subscribe for more videos: http://goo.gl/Z8E50 An educational animation which recounts the four voyages of Columbus. Hope you enjoy! Bibliography at bottom of description AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded when Columbus and his crew made contact with the people of the Caribbean. Of course, I was not able to fit everything into the video; I had to omit details, such as the fact that the Taino were not the only people that Columbus encountered (there were also the Ciguayo tribe and Carib cannibals). A second particular is that not all fault should lie directly on Columbus' shoulders. His crew of 1,200 for the second journey consisted partly of convicts and landless nobles, the worst type of people with which to build a settlement. Another fact is that Columbus grew up in societies (Genoa, then Portugal) that kept domestic slaves. I have no political agenda for making this video. I am a student of history and I have tried to give an account of Columbus' journeys that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth. I will I admit that I am not a fan of Columbus. I think he was cruel, even for his time. We cannot judge a 15th-century human from a 21st-century perspective; but even for the 15th century, he was an awful arbiter. Sources: Bergreen, Laurence.

Scenes give a complete account of the building of one of the boats, a 70-foot trawler, the St. Rosalie. Traditional singing and dancing accompany the various stages of the work." NEW VERSION in one piece instead of multiple parts, and with improved video & sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YhdBZ-yXjE Public domain film from the National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvUH_YPjjKQ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essex,_Massachusetts Essex is a town in Essex County, Massachusetts, 26 miles (42 km) north of Boston. The population was 3,504 at the 2010 census. History Essex was incorporated as a town in 1819. It was previously a part of the town of Ipswich and was then called Chebacco Parish. The first European settlers arrived in 1634. At that time, the land formed part of an area inhabited by Native Americans of the Agawam tribe. The name Chebacco is Agawam in origin and refers to a large lake whose waters extend into neighboring Hamilton. Conomo Point, the eastern-most part of the town, is named for the Sagamore or Chief of the Agawams, Masconomo, the leader of the tribe in the late 17th century. Early on, Chebacco Parish lobbied for status as an independent town, asking for permission to build a meeting house. In colonial times, the existence of a meeting house in a settlement conferred de facto autonomy, so Chebacco Parish was denied permission to build such a structure. Popular history tells that one written dictate was issued stating that "no man shall raise a meeting house", so the residents of the settlement interpreted it as to mean that women would be allowed to do so. It is reported that a local woman, Madam Varney, assembled the town's women and construction of a meeting house was carried out by them while the men looked on... Essex borders Hamilton to the west, Manchester-by-the-Sea to the south, Gloucester to the east, and Ipswich to the north. Essex is located 11 miles (18 km) northeast of Salem and 33 miles (53 km) northeast of Boston. Though not accessible directly by a major highway, Route 128 clips the corner of town, with exits located in neighboring Manchester-by-the-Sea and Gloucester. Route 133 passes from northwest to southeast through town, and the eastern end of Route 22 is at Route 133 in the center of town. The Ipswich Essex Explorer bus provides weekend service during the summer connecting with the MBTA Commuter Rail at Ipswich along the Newburyport/Rockport Line, as well as providing service to Crane Beach and other nearby attractions. The Rockport portion of the commuter rail line passes through neighboring Manchester-by-the-Sea and Gloucester... Former shipbuilding center The town of Essex was once home to a prosperous shipbuilding trade. This industry accounted for most of the revenue of the town from the days of its settlement as Chebacco Parish until the early part of the 20th century. Once a leading supplier of schooners for Gloucester and other Atlantic fishing communities, Essex did not adapt to the transition from sail powered wooden ships to engine powered metal vessels and this activity disappeared around World War II. There have been recent attempts to return to shipbuilding on a small scale as a tourist attraction and they have met with some success. The Essex Shipbuilding Museum stands as a living testament to the wooden shipbuilding industry and the neighboring boat yard owned by generations of the Story Family still constructs and launches classic wooden ships built in the Essex tradition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shipbuilding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boat_building

Decolonization and Nationalism Triumphant: Crash Course World History #40

READ THIS: THERE ARE TWO MORE VIDEOS IN THE WORLD HISTORY SERIES. You should also turn on the captions. You'll like them. In which John Green teaches you about the post-World War II breakup of most of the European empires. As you'll remember from previous installments of Crash Course, Europeans spent several centuries sailing around the world creating empires, despite the fact that most of the places they conquered were perfectly happy to carry on alone. After World War II, most of these empires collapsed. This is the story of those collapses. In most places, the end of empire was not orderly, and violence often ensued. While India was a (sort of) shining example of non-violent change, in places like The Congo, Egypt, Rwanda, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, things didn't go smoothly at all. John brings you all this, plus pictures of Sea Monkeys. Sadly, they don't look anything like those awesome commercials in the comic books.

THEN AND NOW   PROGRESS OF TRANSPORTATION:  STEAM TRAINS, PLANES AND CARS   31040 HD
 
09:44
This documentary THEN AND NOW was a Warner Brothers and Vitaphone production. It was probably made between the years of 1926-1931 because Vitaphone was a sound system used during that period. The commentator was Knox Manning, an American film actor. This documentary is about the changing methods of transportation through history. The film begins showing a person walking to get from one place to another (0.21-.34). The commentator discusses how humans search for the shortest and fastest way to get around. The Pony Express, started by the Leavenworth & Pike’s Peak Express co. in 1859 (0.35-0.45), is shown. During this period, settlers were moving west, using the Conestoga or covered wagon or riding horses (0.46-0.57). Prairie Schooners were called that because they looked like sailing ships. The Overland Stage on the Overland Trail was most heavily used by paying customers in the 1860’s and was owned by Ben Holladay (1.08-1.11). Back east, horses were everywhere. More influential people used the Coach-and-four (1.12-1.23) as well as a Cabbie/Cabby (1.24-1.27). A cabbie was first used in New York in the early 1900’s by the Electric Vehicle Company. The 1890’s produced the Junk Wagon (1.28-1.32). These days also produced the Organ Grinder and his monkeys (1.33-1.41). The Horse Drawn Fire Engine was seen in the cities starting the mid 1800’s ((1.42-1.48). The Sight Seeing Bus of the early 1900’s, started by the Gray Lines (1.49-1.59). In winter, people took leisurely Sleigh rides (2.00-2.14). From the 1820’s to 1880’s horse drawn Streetcars or Horsecars were used (2.15-2.30). Early Limousines or Limoges would drop wealthy patrons off on Broadway in New York (2.31-2.43). For those who were not wealthy, they used the Open-air Streetcar (2.44-2.53). City streets were becoming very crowded. To avoid cluttering the streets, Elevated Streetcars, or El Rails, were developed using electricity instead of horses (2.54-3.14). From running above the ground, humans began moving below. The Manhattan/New York subway was opened in 1904 (3.15-3.28). In the 1830’s, steam began to be used. The Steam car was developed and tested by the B&O railroad in 1828 (3.29-3.37). Early train locomotives were developed (3.38-3.44). Freight trains were developed (4.03-4.19). As the railroad progressed, new, intricate and powerful mechanisms were developed (4.20-4.31). Scenes are shown of the power of the engines puffing their steam and black smoke over bridges and through tunnels (4.32-4.55). The Streamliner was developed to have less air resistance (4.56-5.20).The horse was disappearing and automobiles were taking their place. The gasoline engine was developed for the Horseless carriage. Often, cranks were used to start these Gasoline Buggies (5.22-5.38). Runabouts were developed (5.39-5.45), Automobiles tires went from metal rings, to solid rubber, to inflatable tires. With inflatable tires, also came flat tires (5.57-6.01). On a Sunday afternoon in the city, there could be a maze of traffic with the air full of smog (6.48-7.02), but three decades later, the street is full of cars every day, not just Sundays (7.03-7.20).Not only the streets were getting crowded, so were the skies. In 1903, Wilbur & Orville Wright flew the first “kite with a motor”. The plane had two stacked wings and it was named the Wright Flyer or Flyer I (7.20-7.52). On September 13, 1939, the first practical air machine, running by lift and thrust supplied by rotors, was developed. The developer was Igor Sikorsky and the helicopter was the VS300 (7.53-8.00). The next to be developed was the Monoplane, a fixed wing design with one main wing. It was the plane of choice for Amelia Earhart who flew one in 1928, and Wiley Post who flew one in 1933 (8.01-8.14). Prior to World War II, the tri-motored Mail Plane was used. The first Airmail contract was signed in 1911 (8.15-8.25). The first twinjet ever flown was in 1941 (8.26-8.36). The Clipper ship or Sea Plane was developed to carry troops for World War II. It could travel along the ocean, carrying passengers in a convenient mode of transportation (8.37-9.04). Scenes of a plane flying over a bridge and the land (9.05-9.26). The question must be asked, What next will man discover? (9.28-9.34) This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA.

Basket Making Weaving - Fortress Louisbourg
 
03:38
A demonstration of 18th century traditional Acadian basket making done by historical interpreter craftswomen at Fortress Louisbourg in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. The weaving technique was adapted from Brittany France. http://www.mycompass.ca video: Stephen Smith The French came to Louisbourg in 1713, after ceding Acadia and Newfoundland to the British by the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht, which ended the War of the Spanish Succession. France's only remaining possessions in what is now Atlantic Canada were the islands of Cape Breton and Prince Edward, which were then called Isle Royale and Isle Saint-Jean. The French used these islands as a base to continue the lucrative cod fishery off the Grand Banks. In 1719 they began to construct at Louisbourg a fortified town which was only completed on the eve of the first siege in 1745. The town and settlement along the harbour shore soon became a thriving community. The cod fishery accounted for most of Isle Royale's prosperity. Dried before export, the fish was salted and laid on stages which lined the beaches of Louisbourg and its outports. Louisbourg became a hub of commerce, trading in manufactured goods and various materials imported from France, Quebec, the West Indies and New England. One might think that the fortress would be prepared for any onslaught. Yet, while the harbour was well defended, the main landward defences were commanded by a series of low hills, some dangerously close to the fortifications. All provided excellent locations for siege batteries. The first attack came in 1745 following a declaration of war between Britain and France. Charged with the fervour of a religious crusade, and informed that the fortress was in disrepair with its poorly supplied troops on the verge of mutiny, the New Englanders mounted an assault on Louisbourg. Within 46 days of the invasion the fortress was captured. To the chagrin of the New Englanders, only three years later the town was restored to the French by the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle . In 1758 Louisbourg was besieged a second time. Without a strong navy to patrol the sea beyond its walls, Louisbourg was impossible to defend. Attacking with 13,100 troops supported by a 14,000 crew on board 150 ships, a British army captured the fortress in seven weeks. Determined that Louisbourg would never again become a fortified French base, the British demolished the fortress walls.
