The Bennie Railplane, 1930, (1933). Creator: Unknown

The Bennie Railplane, 1930, (1933). 'The George Bennie railplane is an astounding device by which existing railways could be speeded up for passenger traffic. Stream-lined cylindrical cars driven by air-screws fore and aft are suspended from a steel girder.' The Railplane was a high-level electrically powered suspended monorail system, brainchild of Scottish inventor George Bennie, and designed by engineer Hugh Fraser. A prototype was installed over an LNER siding to Burnbrae Dyeworks at Milngavie, near Glasgow, in 1930, however Bennie was never able to get sufficient financial backing to develop the idea further. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]

'Sledge Track Crossing An Adélie Penguin's Track', 8 December 1911, (1913)

'Sledge Track Crossing An Adélie Penguin's Track'', 8 December 1911, (1913). The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume II. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]
