    In the 1920s and 1930s, sheep were routinely introduced into London parks to keep the grass under control and reduce mowing costs.
    Shepherds competed for the privilege of grazing their flocks on Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Clapham Common and other pastures around the city.


    George Donald once brought his flock all the way down from Aberdeen, Scotland. Considering the difficulty involved in transporting hundreds of sheep over 500 miles, this caused a bit of consternation in Parliament. Sir Harry Brittain asked, "Were not any English sheep available?"


    Though these woolly lawnmowers were eventually barred from grazing in the city in the late 1950s, they have recently experienced a resurgence. In 2010, sheep were introduced to Hampstead Heath as an eco-friendly alternative to machine mowing.

    Nurses in bomb trenches between hospital wards, France 1918. I presume the reasoning behind the trench design would be to reduce loss of life?

    Should a trench get hit with artillery the blast wave and shrapnel cant travel very far down the trench before getting to a corner

    The Margherita hut is a mountain hut on Monte Rosa in the Italian Alps. It's the highest building in Europe sitting at 14,941 feet above sea level. I think I'll sleep outside
