The premiere of what in my opinion is the best of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, The Yeomen Of The Guard. Sadly the works of G&S are largely forgotten these days...I spent years of my life memorising and rehearsing them.

Also mustn't forget the 'Match Girls Strike', and Annie Besant, the campaigning journalist who first brought to public notice the conditions in match factories. She should have been sainted IMHO.

The Eastman-Kodak camera patented.

Birth of aircraft pioneers and designers Thomas Sopwith and Ernst Heinkel. Those names would echo loudly in later years.

The first photograph of the Horsehead Nebula in Orion was taken in 1888, by a Scottish astronomer named Williamina Fleming, a remarkable woman in many ways.

In case you're wondering, the 1888 photo is on the left, with a modern colour image alongside for comparison.

The 1888 "photo" was actually taken by William Henry Pickering.

In Braunau am Inn, Austria, Alois and Klara were getting jiggy with it and they conceived a child.




The Bishop of Rome was Pope Leo XIII who had been in post for 10 years, he would hold it another 15 years until his death at 93 in 1903.







The Blue Riband for the fastest ship was held by RMS Etruria, the record set was 19.56 knots on a 6-day, 2-hour run from Queenstown to Sandy Hook arriving on the 2nd June 1888.







Heavyweight Champ by popular acclaim was the American John L. Sullivan the "Boston Strong Boy". On the 5th of January Sullivan fought his one and only fight in the UK winning by TKO3 against William Samuells at the Philharmonic Hall, Cardiff.

So it was. Turns out that Williamina Fleming was the one who discovered the Horsehead Nebula in 1888 by examining the photographic plate he'd made.

Thanks, Dave.
