Phonograph: How would you listen to music if there was no such thing as Spotify or iTunes? Well in the 19th and 20th century you would be turning on a phonograph. In the early 1900s Thomas Edison was out to create a better way to play your music. The result his work is the phonograph like the one pictured above; these new cylinders were created with a chemical mixture that allowed for a better sound and a more durable use. The sound was so impressive that people often referred to these as “recreations” of sound not just a recording. His new phonograph also became more available to people living at home, which is why you would find it in the general store museum today!

The transgender community in India was not always criminalized and pushed to the edges. What, then, caused the society to view them with such disgust and the law to deny them their basic civil rights?

This is Archie. He lives in an 1850's style Ballarat. Stoked.

• The Anglo-Zanzibar War
In 1896 the shortest war ever took place between Britain and Zanzibar. It lasted 38 minutes. The palace of the Sultan was bombarded and he swiftly escaped and left leaving the British to take over.
Although a short war, over 500 Zanzibar men were wounded or killed 💀. #history #britishhistory #colonialhistory #africanhistory #zanzibar #modernhistory #britain #england #africa #britishinafrica #britishempire

Tooth Powder: So what is tooth powder? This 19th century toothpaste is similar to what we use today, only in powder form. However, the ingredients in those would be different from what we use today. The main ingredients in tooth powder then included: chalk, magnesium carbonate, cuttlefish bone, antiseptics, detergents, bayberry leaves, myrrh, cloves, or peppermint. Recognize any of these ingredients in your toothpaste at home?

Fr. Simon Gregory Perera, famously known as Fr. S G Perera of the Society of Jesus was a prominent Historian in the 20th century who translated many colonial documents to English including the voluminous Temporal and Spiritual Conquest of Ceylon by Fr. Queyroz of 17th century.

He was born in June 1882 in Kalutara and educated at Holy Cross College Kalutara and Wesley College. He was ordained in 1917 and was the first Sinhalese to join the order. He pursued an Academic career and passed away on 19th February 1950 and is buried at Dadalla cemetery in Galle. More details can be found on www.archaeology.lk

His vast library can be found at Thulana Research Centre at Kelaniya.

I once said being in Mexico City was like meeting step brothers and sisters for the first time then -boom- instant connection. Then of course, being in Madrid was like meeting a great grandfather for the first time. His greatness l heard all about throughout my whole life was true... but where’s the love? #colonialhistory #spain #madrid

Hildreth’s General Store
Caption: Recognize the name on this store? You’ve probably seen the Hildreth General store still today on Main Street in Southampton. This building is from 1893 and is a recreation of the original Hildreth’s General Store. Keep an eye out for posts that talk about what you would have maybe found in the Hildreth’s General store years before.

Afro-Peruvians are Peruvians who are descended from Africans who were enslaved and brought to the Western hemisphere by the conquistadors towards the end of the slave trade. Peru is considered to have the seventh largest Black African population in the western hemisphere, following Brazil, Haiti, the United States, Canada, Colombia and Ecuador.The first Africans arrived with the conquistadors in 1521, mostly as slaves, and some returned with colonists to settle in 1525. Between 1529 and 1537, when Francisco Pizarro was granted permits to import 363 slaves to colonial Peru, a large group of Africans were imported to do labor for public construction, building bridges and road systems. They were also forced to fight alongside the conquistadors as mercenaries and worked as personal servants and bodyguards. In 1533 Afro-Peruvian slaves accompanied Spaniards in the conquest of Cuzco. Some Afro Peruvians are “mulattos”, descendants of Spanish Europeans and black African women. Some are also “zambos”, mixture of Black African and Native American/Amerindian.

This day last month was a day of churches and bridges, from Savannah GA through Beaufort SC and ending in Charleston.
At St Helena’s Episcopal Church in Beaufort, dating back to 1724, two British officers from the Revolutionary War are buried. Rather moving to see their little stone. #revolutionarywar #sthelenasbeaufort #beaufortsc #oldchurchesofamerica #colonialhistory #visitbeaufortsc
