The Week in History: January 8th - January 14thby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

We’re well into 2018 now, though it’s always worth taking a look back at the years gone by to see exactly how all those other new year hopes turned out. This year is already shaping up to be an interesting one on a variety of fronts, but let’s take a break from the chaos of today’s headlines to take a closer look back at what happened this week in the decades and centuries we’ve traipsed through to get here. Buckle in for a time trip!

January 8th, 1963: Mona Lisa Makes Her US Debut
Leonardo Da Vinci’s timeless and still-mystifying portrait of a young woman made its way to US shores for the first time 55 years ago this week – where it found its place at the National Gallery of Art.

January 9th, 2007: The Birth of The iPhone
Inarguably one of the landmark events in technological history, the smartphone that would redefine the competition debuted only 11 years ago this week. Now in its 8th and 9th iterations, it’s still selling well despite concerns over just how far the product will continue to evolve.

January 10th, 1920: The Treaty of Versailles Takes Effect
It’s the treaty that effectively ended the Great War – and it celebrates its 98th year of having been made effective this week.

January 11th, 1922: Diabetes Treated With Insulin For The First Time
Just two years and one day later, a huge medical breakthrough took place – as the treatment of diabetes in a human patient was first attempted with counter-acting insulin.

January 12th, 2010: Haiti Earthquake Wreaks Devastation
Eight years ago this week, around 160,000 people lost their lives in a devastating earthquake in Haiti, wreaking mass destruction of the nation’s capital.

January 13th, 1968: Johnny Cash Performs at Folsom Prison
In what may be the most iconic performance in the entirety of the Man in Black’s career, the legendary Johnny Cash took his undeniable vocals to Folsom State Prison fifty years ago this week.

January 14th, 1973: Elvis Breaks TV History
Elsewhere in US music history, Elvis Presley’s Aloha concert – broadcast from Hawaii – became the most-watched single-performer broadcast in TV history. The live event would become one of the King’s trademark performances – though he would sadly pass away only four years later.

Stick with us for more time travelling next week – same place, but not the same dates!
