Drawings, drawings, drawings

Happy Friday to you all, our blog this week is all about drawings. To kick off (excuse the pun, it seems appropriate!) do you know when engineering drawings first emerged?

Getting the right pace

Do you know the first speeding offence in the UK happened in 1896? Walter Arnold was caught breaking the then speed limit of just 2mph! His ‘horseless carriage’ was travelling at a dizzy 8mph – even this seems slow in today’s age. We don’t know how his speed was recorded Read more…

Making positive predictions

We’re starting this week’s Fun Friday Fact with a quote, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers”. These words are attributed to T.J Watson, President of IBM in 1943.
