The beginning of XX century – a time when mankind has made a leap in technology. Cities electrified, there were telephone, incandescent bulbs. The internal combustion engine is actively used in cars and motorcycles. Actively developing the photo, and with it the cinema. It has become possible to record and play sounds with the help of the phonograph and the gramophone. In medicine: vaccinations, X-rays and blood transfusion. Another significant event is, of course, the appearance of aviation. I visited the interesting exhibition “Aviation. Morning a new era” just about those first steps. I liked the models and photos of gyroplanes, but more on that in the next post.
