There is a strong wind blowing The measurer and the fire cannot be stopped but spreads rapidly among the wooden houses and the wood stores in the narrow alleys. Strong wind provides good nourishment for the fire. A large area south of Kåkbrinken and west of Västerlånggatan is completely destroyed. The fire, which reaches all the way to the Västerlånggatan stone house, means that the German church is threatened for a while.

The fire destroys roughly 40% of the city and a total of more than 440,000 buildings, which is the majority of the destroyed buildings. The remaining 260,000 buildings are destroyed by the earthquake. Due to broken water lines, fire fighting was impaired and the fire can spread more violently.

The hot, dry and windy conditions prevailing in Tokyo contribute to the large fire.

Adidas is in modern times a German multinational company that manufactures clothing and shoes for a range of sports and everyday use. Adidas is one of the world's biggest brands in the sportswear industry and is found all over the world. However, Adidas had a small stealth start already in the 1920s when the brothers Adolf Dassler and Rudolf Dassler together start making shoes and quickly achieve success. In 1924, there are twelve employees and daily manufacture around 50 pairs of shoes. From 1925, Adolf Dassler manufactures his first football boots. In 1927, the number of employees has increased to 25 and 100 pairs of shoes are produced per day. The first factory is ready.

  • 1985 - The wreck of the luxury cruiser Titanic, which was wrecked on its maiden voyage 1912, is found for the first time. It is an American-French expedition led by Robert Ballard that succeeds in finding the wreck. It takes a full 73 years before the Titanic's wreck is finally found. It is not known exactly where the wreck is and is the reason why it takes so long to find the ship. The great depth of the sea is also a concern. Equipment that can withstand an ambient pressure of around 370 kg per square centimeter is required as the ship is assumed to be more than 3,700-3,800 meters below the surface of the water. Technology also plays a big role in the search, as you previously did not have access to advanced computer technology. After the expansion of modern technology with submarines and the possibility of taking sharp pictures far below the surface of the water, an American-French expedition led by Jean-Loius Michel and Robert Ballard on September 1, 1985 finally manages to locate the wreck at a depth of 3,810 meters. For the first time, after submarines with advanced camera technology searched the wreck site, it is understood that the ship has been broken into two parts and is lying on the bottom about 500 meters away. This changes the perception of how the sinking happened - as it was previously believed that the wreck sank as a whole ship. The discovery of the wreck of the Titanic causes a great stir and is soon front page news around the world.
