William Rysdyk's Hambletonian 1865, Father of the Trotting Horse. His employer, Seeley

William Rysdyk's Hambletonian 1865, Father of the Trotting Horse. His employer, Seeley, acquired a Charles Kent Mare, which had been permanently injured and was used only for breeding. Sired by Bellfounder, she was of Norfolk Trotter ancestry, a breed noted for its smooth gait. Seeley bred his mare to Abdullah, who was a grandson of Messenger, but a mean and ugly horse. The offspring of the Charles Kent Mare and Abdullah was a bay colt who was to be a keystone in the future of harness racing.
Rysdyk persuaded his employer to sell him the colt and named him Hambletonian. In all, Hambletonian was bred to some 1, 900 mares resulting in 1, 331 foals. Forty of these foals trotted the mile in less than 2 minutes 30 seconds. Among Hambletonian's many distinguished heirs were Dexter, Happy Medium, George Wilkes, Dictator, and Electioneer. The blood of Hambletonian is in most of today's distinguished trotters and pacers. The History of Horse Racing by Roger Longrigg, page 236.

Shop inside the stock !. Building hidden by a thousand overcoats, brings chaos

Shop inside the stock !.
Building hidden by a thousand overcoats, brings chaos, but all were sold.
All records in high speed salesmanship were broken by Mr Christiian Troelstrup, a Copenhagen clothier who wanted to get rid of a large stock of overcoats, Mr Troelstrp draped his overcoats, more than a thousand of them, all over his building. The walls from roof to pavement became one vast expanse of overcoat, and soon the customers came. Hundreds of them. Extra police had to be called to deal with the crowds who came first to stare then to buy.
By the time the harrassed policemen had informed Troelstrup that his overcoats must come down, a buyer had been found for every one.
Photo shows, the building covered with overcoats.
8 April 1936
