1858 - Florence Nightingale. Photo not discovered until 2006. Florence Nightingale is one of nursing’s most important figures. She gained worldwide attention for her work as a nurse during the Crimean War. She was dubbed “The Lady with the Lamp” after her habit of making rounds at night to tend to injured soldiers. Early photographs of Florence Nightingale are very rare because she was extremely reluctant to be photographed, partly for religious reasons

The Octavius was discovered West of Greenland by a whaler on October 11th, 1775. Crew members of the Whaler Herald boarded the vessel, discovering the entire crew dead, frozen, apparently at the moment of their death. The Captain was found in his cabin frozen at his desk with his pen in hand, still writing in his log. He was accompanied by a dead woman, a child covered in a blanket and a sailor holding a tinderbox. The ship's log showed that the frozen ship had been afloat for over 13 years.
