Channel tunnel Featured 17 Jun 2004 Print

Channel tunnel

Channel tunnel. Historical artwork of a tunnel beneath the English Channel through which Napoleon's troops are moving to invade England. The possibility of a tunnel under the Channel was first put to Napoleon in 1802. This cartoon was drawn in 1804, after the resumption of war between England and France in 1803. The French are also attacking by sea and by hot air balloon (the Channel was first crossed by hot air balloon in 1785). The English defence includes ships and men flying from kites with rifles. A semaphore system is operating from telegraph towers on the French side. From La Telegraphie Historique by Alexis Belloc (1888)

Guillaume Amontons, French physicist Featured 17 Jun 2004 Print

Guillaume Amontons, French physicist

Guillaume Amontons (1663-1705). Historical artwork of the French physicist and inventor Guillaume Amontons demonstrating his optical telegraphy system to the Dauphin of France. This demonstration is thought to have taken place sometime between 1688 and 1695. The system used a series of signalling stations with a wooden arm that could be moved into different positions to represent letters of the alphabet. The signals would be replicated in successive stations to pass a message by signalmen using telescopes to view the station before them in line. Amontons system was never put into practice. From La Telegraphie Historique by Alexis Belloc (1888)
