What they are saying about The Story of the Tour de France: After forty years of study on the subject, I can with some confidence say Bill and Carol McGann's The Story of the Tour de France is the finest such work ever produced in the English language, and perhaps in any. Most of my preferred references are in French, one runs to over 800 pages, yet the McGanns' opus revealed information new to me in almost every paragraph. Their research has been not only impeccable, but insightful. -Owen Mulholland, author of Uphill Battle and Cycling's Golden Age The Story of the Tour de France: How a Newspaper Promotion Became the Greatest Sporting Event in the World by Bill and Carol McGann is a must read. -Road Bike Action Magazine For any historian of the sport the McGanns'Tour de France history...

188/365v2 Le Tour (of Suffolk)
188/365v2 Le Tour (of Suffolk)

So the Tour De France travelled through Essex today, passing through Finchingfield, just a few miles down the road from where we live. I was going to go along with my camera, but saw some of the coverage of the race itself (as it went through Yorkshire) which very clearly passed by in the blink of an eye and decided I really didn't want to spend a day fighting through crowds of people for just a few seconds of opportunity seeing the actual racers...so we went on our own tour into Suffolk. We started off in Dunwich Forest, which surprisingly boasts Dartmoor Ponies as one of its residents, along with Red Deer. We didn't see either, but saw thousands of butterflies and plenty of dragonflies wizzing around. We had fish and chips at Southwold...hence today's shot of Southwold taken from the pier - a lovely seaside town...but extremely busy. We finished the day out at Leiston Abbey, a mainly 14c ruined Abbey which we had seen in passing on a number of times but had just driven past -...

That Was the Year That Was - 1967

1967 the continued presence of American troops increased further and a total of 475,000 were serving in Vietnam and the peace rallies were multiplying as the number of protesters against the war increased. www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpWEv9Q0XQ4 The Boxer Muhammad Ali was stripped of his boxing world championship for refusing to be inducted into the US Army. In the middle east Israel also went to war with Syria, Egypt and Jordan in the six day war and when it was over Israel controlled and occupied a lot more territory than before the war. Once again in the summer cities throughout America exploded in rioting and looting the worst being in Detroit on July 23rd where 7000 national Guard were bought in to restore law and order on the streets. In England a new type of model became a fashion sensation by the name of Twiggy and mini skirts continued to get shorter and even more popular with a short lived fashion being paper clothing. www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB5eIfHXkWQ Also...

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay": Boeing's B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons. On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions. Transferred from the United States Air Force. Manufacturer: Boeing Aircraft...
