    Do you know what happened on this day ............?


    On this day we saw ........Coffee shops are nothing new, but did you know that in 1675 Parliament ordered all coffee houses to close because they thought they were centres of malicious gossip about the Government. We wonder what they would have made of social media. In 1860 HMS Warrior, was launched. It was Britain's first seagoing iron-clad warship. In 1918 The Sunday Express was published for the first time.1975 was the year that saw the introduction of new legislation giving women the right to equal pay and status in the workplace in the UK.In 1997 Hong Kong begins slaughtering all its chickens to prevent bird fluIn 2013, do you remember seeing on BBC's Antiques Roadshow a painting bought for £400 which was revealed to be a Van Dyck portrait worth about £400,000?
