This Week in History: July 23rd - July 29th

One News Page Staff Monday, 23 July 2018
This Week in History: July 23rd - July 29thby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

It’s that time again – no pun intended – as we take to our time machine to take a closer look at all of the most notable and interesting titbits that history has to offer us this week. What happened this week ten years ago – ten centuries ago – and beyond? It’s time to find out!

July 23rd, 1904 – The Ice Cream Cone is Born
If your birthday’s today, you share it with modern ice cream – it’s hard to believe the humble, edible cone is only just over a hundred years old, having debuted at the St Louis World Fair – it’s become a true staple!
Famous Birthday: Daniel Radcliffe (Actor), 28

July 24th, 1567 – Mary Queen of Scots’ Reign Ends
One of the most famous Queens during an age where Scotland and England weren’t exactly the best of friends – Queen Mary was forced to abdicate on this day, leaving her son, the infant James VI, in charge. Her story is set to be told in a forthcoming movie starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie.
Famous Birthday: Amelia Earhart (Pilot), 1897 - 1939

July 25th, 1997 – Successful Stem Cell Research Begins
Even as recent as this past week, stem cell research remains a hot topic – a pressing one when it comes to ethics, too – and 21 years ago this week, scientists were first able to create such human cells in laboratory conditions.
Famous Birthday: Matt LeBlanc (Actor / TV Host), 50

July 26th, 2017 – The UK’s Electric Future
In a move increasingly in line with industry trends, the UK announced this time last year that they would be moving to ban cars using diesel and gasoline by the year 2040. A brave statement – but perhaps a necessary one.
Famous Birthday: Mick Jagger (Rolling Stone), 74

July 27th, 2012 – The London Olympics Open
Sticking with the UK – perhaps one of the most memorable opening ceremonies for an Olympic Games took place an unbelievable six years ago this week. Where else could you get James Bond, Mr Bean, The Queen and Danny Boyle all in one place? Spectacular stuff!
Famous Birthday: Jordan Spieth (Golfer), 24

July 28th, 1586 – Potatoes Come to Europe!
On a return trip home to England, Sir Thomas Harriot brought back one of our absolute staples – potatoes – for the very first time. Just think – without his first spud, you’d not have fish and chips or jacket spuds – it hardly bears thinking about!
Famous Birthday: Beatrix Potter (Author), 1866 - 1943

July 29th, 1921 – Hitler Gains Leadership
Ending this week’s trip on a fairly downbeat note – Adolf Hitler became the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party – the Nazis – on this day in 1921. Thankfully, the world would end his reign of terror – but not after many casualties on and off the battlefield.
Famous Birthday: Fernando Alonso (F1 Driver), 37
