The Great Fire, which destroyed much of London in 1666.

 

On the plus side, it burned away most of the plague, which had been ravaging the city.

THE CHEMICAL REVOLUTION
Tuesday, 31 October 1916
Following the introduction of machinery and the consequent assemblage of craftsmen in factories, the closing years of the eighteenth century witnessed a transformation in the methods of production and distribution which has come to be known as the Industrial Revolution. Future historians will trace back to the year 1915 a Chemical Revolution which, although not yet established in the imagination of the British people, is nevertheless destined to transfigure the material surroundings and the mental outlook of their descendants.

^ Buildings looked better in 1910. Shame a little thing called World War 2 had to happen.

PSA Flight 182

 

Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA) Flight 182 was a Boeing 727-214 commercial airliner, registration N533PS, that collided with a private Cessna 172 light aircraft, registration N7711G, over San Diego, California, at 9:01 a.m. on Monday, September 25, 1978. It was Pacific Southwest Airlines' first fatal accident.

Both aircraft crashed into North Park, a San Diego neighborhood. Flight 182 impacted just north of the intersection of Dwight and Nile, killing all 135 people aboard the aircraft and seven people on the ground in houses, including two children. The Cessna impacted on Polk Ave. between 32nd St. and Iowa St., killing the two on board. Nine others on the ground were injured and 22 homes were destroyed or damaged by the impact and debris.
