    Default Curious historical events.

    Sorry, but I came upon this picture on facebook. But don't know if it is from a film or was it an historical event, I am really very curious.

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    This would appear to be from 1991.

    More than 10 thousand Albanians were on board the cargo ship "Flora", who had managed to escape a fire...
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Thanks for that lead Rebbonk.. I also found this link... https://rarehistoricalphotos.com/alb...es-italy-1991/
    and found out a bit more.. Something I had totally forgotten . Quite scary really as similar economic collapse can so easily happen these days.
