America, 1908: The Dawn of Flight, the Race to the Pole, the Invention of the Model T, and the Making of a Modern Nation



A captivating look at a bygone era through the lens of a single, surprisingly momentous American year one century ago. 1908 was the year Henry Ford launched the Model T, the Wright Brothers proved to the world that they had mastered the art of flight, Teddy Roosevelt decided to send American naval warships around the globe, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series (a feat they have never yet repeated), and six automobiles set out on an incredible 20,000 mile race from New York City to Paris via the frozen Bering Strait.
A charming and knowledgeable guide, Rasenberger takes readers back to a time of almost limitless optimism, even in the face of enormous inequality, an era when the majority of Americans believed that the future was bound to be better than the past, that the world’s worst problems would eventually be solved, and that nothing at all was impossible. As Thomas Edison succinctly said that year, “Anything, everything is possible.”

Sir Donald George Bradman, AC (27 August 1908 – 25 February 2001), often referred to as The Don, was an Australian cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time.[1] Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been claimed to be statistically the greatest achievement in any major sport.[2]

The story that the young Bradman practised alone with a cricket stump and a golf ball is part of Australian folklore.[3] Bradman's meteoric rise from bush cricket to the Australian Test team took just over two years. Before his 22nd birthday, he had set many records for high scoring, some of which still stand, and became Australia's sporting idol at the height of the Great Depression.

During a 20-year playing career, Bradman consistently scored at a level that made him, in the words of former Australia captain Bill Woodfull, "worth three batsmen to Australia".[4] A controversial set of tactics, known as Bodyline, was specifically devised by the England team to curb his scoring. As a captain and administrator Bradman was committed to attacking, entertaining cricket; he drew spectators in record numbers. He hated the constant adulation, however, and it affected how he dealt with others. The focus of attention on his individual performances strained relationships with some team-mates, administrators and journalists, who thought him aloof and wary.[5] Following an enforced hiatus, due to the Second World War, he made a dramatic comeback, captaining an Australian team known as "The Invincibles" on a record-breaking unbeaten tour of England.

A complex, highly driven man, not given to close personal relationships,[6] Bradman retained a pre-eminent position in the game by acting as an administrator, selector and writer for three decades following his retirement. Even after he became reclusive in his declining years his opinion was highly sought, and his status as a national icon was still recognised—more than 50 years after his retirement as a Test player, in 2001, the Australian Prime Minister John Howard called him the "greatest living Australian".[7] Bradman's image has appeared on postage stamps and coins, and he was the first living Australian to have a museum dedicated to his life. On the centenary of his birth, 27 August 2008, the Royal Australian Mint issued a $5 commemorative gold coin with his image.[8]

On 19 November 2009, Sir Don Bradman was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.[9]

Australia Stamp.
Centenary of Scouting in Australia - Datestamped First Day Cover with Stamp Set
?? (??): 33.00


This set of three stamps mark the Centenary of Scouting in Australia from 1908 to 2008.

The centenary of the Scouting movement was celebrated worldwide in 2007 marking the first experimental camp for 20 boys at Brownsea Island, England in August 1907. The founder of Scouting, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, used the opportunity to test his ideas for an outdoor education program that "developed pluck, intelligence, initiative, and a spirit of adventure". The success of this initiative led to two publications: Scouting for Boys and Scout both appearing in instalments in 1908. Scouting quickly spread around the world and the arrival of these pamphlets in Australia led to the rapid development of scouting in this country.

The 50 cent stamp depicts Joeys, Cubs and Scouts in an action shot that highlights the resourcefulness and teamwork sentiment so strong within the Scouting culture. The international stamps feature a more global image that depicts the goodwill of Scouts from around the world including an Australian Scout in an orange shirt, and a commemorative profile of international founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell.

America, 1908






The 2005 Ashes series was the most eagerly anticipated for decades. Not since 1989 had the famous urn left the hands of the all-conquering Australians, and with England in the ascendant after a string of Test successes, hopes were high that the balance of power in world cricket would at last shift.
The series did not disappoint. From the rip-roaring first day at Lord's, with seventeen wickets falling, it was clear we were in for something special. Although the visitors went onto win that match England bounced back with a spectacular win at Edgbaston, and further nailbiting finishes followed at Old Trafford, Trent Bridge and The Oval. In this sparkling account of an amazing summer, England's coach Duncan Fletcher reveals the strategies, the stresses and successes of one of the greatest series in the history of the game.
