This exhibition of photographs from The National Archives was produced in 2000 as part of a larger exhibition put together by partners in the Safeguarding European Photographic Images for Access (SEPIA) project. Institutions from across Europe provided images from their own holdings showing transport of all kinds across the Continent. The collection shows the technical development; the marvels of design and construction that improvements in transport spawned. Transport has fundamentally altered the world in which we live and these images cover everything from horsepower to airpower.

Mary Pickford was the most famous performer from the early days of Hollywood. She was the first true movie star. Before her name became known, theaters enticed her fans into buying tickets posting signs letting people know that their film starred “the girl with the curls,” “the Biograph girl” or “Blondilocks.” Mary was born in Toronto, Canada, on April 8, 1892. She was of English and Irish descent. She began in the theater at age seven. In 1907, she adopted a family name Pickford and joined the David Belasco troupe. In 1909, she appeared in 40 movies for D.W. Griffith's American Biograph company. In 1913 she joined the Famous Players Film Company of Adolph Zukor. She then joined First National Exhibitor's Circuit in 1918. Since 1919, when she helped to establish United Artists, she worked as a producer and co-founder, with Charlie Chaplin, and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., who would become her second husband. Pickford retired from the screen in 1933 but continued to produce. She died in 1979.
