December 31 Events in History

No survivors were found on board the Ourang Medan in June, 1947, but what was most disturbing was the nature of the bodies, all frozen in place looking up towards the sun, their arms outstretched, mouths gaping, and a look of immense horror on all their faces. A trip to the communications room revealed the author of the SOS messages, also dead, his hand still on the Morse sending key, eyes wide open and teeth bared. Strangely, there was no sign of wounds or injuries on any of the bodies.

Probably the most famous photo of the legendary racehorse Seabiscuit, beating "the fastest horse in the world" War Admiral at Pimlico, November 1st, 1938. Both horse and jockey George Woolf gaze right into the camera while all else is a blur. I love this photo.

VICTORIAN LEVIATHAN: The Great Eastern was a marvel of her age: a steam and sail vessel with two sidewheels, 6 sailing masts & 4 boilers. At 207 (l) x 25 (w) meters in dimension, she could easily transport either 4000 passengers or 10000 troops around the world without stopping along the way. Sadly she was expensive to run and passed thru different owners until she was eventually being scrapped. It took 2 years to dismantle her & a body was found in the double walled hull during dismantling

The Boston Molasses Disaster, also known as the Great Molasses Flood and the Great Boston Molasses Tragedy, occurred on January 15, 1919, in the North End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts in the United States. A large molasses storage tank burst, and a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 mph (56 km/h), killing 21 and injuring 150. The event has entered local folklore, and residents claim that on hot summer days, the area still smells of molasses.
