London, November 3, 1881. A young woman slips through the curtains of fog down Pendy Corner to the 26th house in the row. She vacillates at the gate. For, past that sullen door, she must seek the help of the distinctively eccentric and impatient young language expert named Basil Collingwood. The fate of Europe, and indeed, the free peoples of the world may depend upon getting him to understand her. The only trouble? She cannot speak a word. Brace yourself for a heart-pounding, romantic romp through Victorian London, rivaling the best of Doyle and Dickens - for, this is only the beginning of a series that will sweep you from the glittering pomp of Hampton Court, to the smoky slums of Shoreditch, up the stairs to 221B Baker Street, and to the murky waters of the River Thames, alongside brilliant, peculiar and outcast characters who find themselves at home within the walls of a sulking old brownstone wedged into a winding London lane: a house known by both Sherlock Holmes and the Queen of England simply as Pendywick Place. 1.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Velasco class of unprotected cruisers was a series of eight cruisers built during the 1880s for service with the Spanish Navy. They were named for famous Spaniards of the past.The Velasco class consisted of two slightly different subclasses. The first two ships, Velasco and Gravina, built by the Thames Ironworks & Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. Ltd. at Leamouth, London in the United Kingdom, had fewer but heavier guns and were slightly faster than the next six, which were built at various yards in Spain. The class took a long time to complete, with the two British-build ships being laid down in 1881 and the last Spanish built one not being completed until 1889. The ships had one rather tall funnel, an iron hull, and barque rigging. They were unarmored.

Frederick Joseph Ricketts (21 February 1881 15 May 1945) was a British composer of marches for band. Using the pen name Kenneth J. Alford, his marches are considered to be great examples of the art. His career as a Bandmaster in the British Army and latterly as a Director of Music in the Royal Marines is legendary, and conductors, musicians and the public, are one with conductor Sir Vivian Dunn in calling Ricketts "The British March King." Ricketts frequent use of the saxophone contributed to its permanent inclusion in military bands. Ricketts was born on 21 February 1881, the 4th child of Robert and Louisa (née Alford) Ricketts in the Thameside hamlet of Ratcliff, within the parish of Shadwell in London's East End. Born within the sound of Bow Bells (the Church of St. Mary-le-Bow in Cheapside), Ricketts has a true Cockney birthright. His London ancestry can be traced back to the early 18th century. His father was a coal merchant in Ratcliff on the north side of the Thames near Limehouse.
