happy birthday, history

Toronto, 2013.10.26

Happy 301st birthday, steam engine.

Happy 201st birthday, war of 1812, when the Americans invaded British North America and burned down our parliament, and when the BNA side burned the white house badly enough for a re-paint (white).

And happy 101st birthday, Girl Guides.
