my-little-time-machine: Lillie Langtry, 1882 by Napoleon Sarony // Have been fascinated by Lillie since watching the BBC serial. This gown! That hat! (I admit I was also arrested by the title; not sure why it's called "my little time machine" but since "Into the Lair" is a time travel novel set in Victorian England, I couldn't *not* pin it.)
Le véritable sucre à la crème Laura Secord! ** conversion des mesures : 1 lb de beurre = 2 tasses (la grosse brique), 1 kg de cassonade = 5 tasses, 1 kg de sucre à glacer = 6 2/3 tasses, 1 boîte de lait = 370 ml (la grosse)**
CANADA. The grave of Laura Secord at Drummond Hill Cemetery, Niagara Falls, Ontario, completed 1891. // During the War of 1812, Laura Secord walked twenty miles through American territory to warn British forces of an impending American attack. This allowed the British to repel the Americans at the Battle of Beaver Dams. Her story became widely known during the women's suffrage movement in the 1880s, and she is now widely considered a hero in Canada.
