This is former 1st Assistant Ramon Pinder and his adopted daughter Jessie. #onthisday in 1909 it was his first day at the #hillsborolighthouse. Ramon was brothers-in-law with former Assistant Samuel Curry. Pinder’s grandson, Dr Raymond McAllister, wrote about Jessie who was born and then living in the Bahamas, “Her mother died when she was 4 or 5 years old and her father remarried. The (censored) he married did not want a child she had not borne so she apparently made life miserable... One day she left the child on a sandbar... When a fishing boat went by, Jessie was tippy-toeing to keep her nose above water...” Her uncle Ramon adopted her shortly thereafter. Also on this day in 1928 the deadly Okeechobee Hurricane blew past registering 130 mph winds. Then in 1947 the Bennett family sought refuge inside the lighthouse as hurricane George ravaged the station.

Today, Mayflower Day marks the day the ship set sail from Plymouth, England in 1620, with the first English pilgrims arriving at the new world (what is now Cape Cod), 66 days later. The Wampanoag native people helped the arrivals set up their colony, as half of them had not survived the journey. #onthisday
#onthisday (give or take) 30 years ago this would've arrived in the post. My first ever #rte #contract. I remember laughing as I signed it knowing I'd have done it for nothing; but three months later when its successor came saying in disbelief, "Is that all?" #notions#head2toe#television#presenter#archive
16 სექტემბერი/September 16th #დღევანდელდღეს 1988 წელს ფილ ქოლინზი იღებს მის პირველ წამყვან როლს, უაღრესად წარმატებულ მხატვრულ ფილმში, Buster, რომელშიც ის ანსახიერებს ნამდვილ მძარცველს, ბასტერ ედვარდსს. სანუნდტრეკიდან მხოლოდ ორი ტრეკი: "A Groovy Kind Of Love" და "Two Hearts" აღწევენ #1 პოზიციას ჩარტებში, ისე რომ მუსიკალურად ფილმი დიდად წარმატებული არ გამოდგა. #onthisday 1988: @officialphilcollins lands his first leading role in a film, playing real-life criminal Buster Edwards in the box-office bomb Buster. Musically, the movie isn't a bust, with two #1 hits on the soundtrack: "A Groovy Kind Of Love" and "Two Hearts."
