Today in History: The Bikini
Two small pieces of fabric caused major turmoil at the beaches at the end of the 1940s. French fashion designer Louis Reard gave them a name: bikini. The first bikini was presented on July 5, 1946 at a Paris fashion show. The rest is history.

Today in History: Cunard founded in 1840

178 years ago today, Samuel Cunard founded the first transatlantic boat service, a company called the British and North American Royal Mail Steam Packet Company, which quickly became known as the Cunard Line. Samuel Cunard himself took part in the maiden voyage on the Britannia, leaving Liverpool on July 4th and arriving in Halifax, Canada, 12 days later. The vessel hosted 115 passengers and included a ladies-only saloon. The fare of 34 guineas covered provisions and wine.

Today in History: First Zeppelin Flight

Today in History: First Zeppelin Flight

On July 2, 1900, the first zeppelin flight took place over Germany’s Lake Constance (the Bodensee). Leading the flight was no other than Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, the designer and builder of the first rigid airship in the world, the LZ 1 (LZ stands for Luftschiff Zeppelin or Zeppelin Airship). Powered by two Daimler engines with 28 PS, the airship consisted of a 128-meter-long aluminum construction which was carried by hydrogen cells. While the zeppelin may be considered a spectacular aircraft, it was but only an episode in the conquest of the skies by humans. The size and especially the highly explosive gas mixture limited the use of the otherwise elegant aircraft. The catastrophic explosion of the “Hindenburg” on May 6, 1937 was the sad climax and the end of zeppelins.
