Lunch – Feb 1st

Double header this week. For Thursday

1884 – The first volume of the Oxford English Dictionary (A – Ant), 23 years in the making. The story is oddly reminiscent of Apple. They started in a shed with a bunch of pigeon holes to place bits of paper when they decided existing dictionaries were inadequate. Really in an interesting read.

Come wish Chris well as he continues his career.

1937 – The Lincoln Tunnel opens to traffic in New York City, connecting 38th St., Manhattan, with Weehawken, N.J.

From the Port Authority:

…The work of the sandhogs—as workers who dig tunnels are still colloquially known—was dangerous, claustrophobic and tedious. Just entering and exiting the tunnel was time-consuming. Crews entered air locks, one at a time, after which the doors at each end were sealed.

The workers were then able to safely open the connecting door and crowd into the next section, where the entire ordeal would be repeated.
