Building Blocks of History 18th October

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 18th  October in years gone by.

In 1910 E M  Howard’s End, one of my favourite Forster novels, was published.

In 1922 the British Broadcasting Company was founded.

In 1977 Hilary Bradshaw became the first woman to referee a rugby match.

In 1990 my mother, daughter and I visited Queen Eleanor’s Garden in Winchester.

Past and future meet

in the footsteps of a queen.

Mighty matriarchs.
