Discussion: 5 July 1900

Thought that reference might get a few people wondering.
For what it's worth, two of the first ten links if you do a Google search for the date are relevant to what I was thinking about (in the context of a possible repetition this weekend, something which looks a more remote prospect now than it did yesterday morning).
I'm guessing snow storms rather than air ships. But I had to laugh at Neil's effort.
There's also the founding of West Ham United.
I found the massive snowfall straight away, but it was boring. I would have been proud of the founding of West Ham though. Was there ever an East Ham, and if so, why would it not be disunited, unless they actually merged with West Ham, in which case they really should be Ham United...
Or this one:
On 5 July 1900 the British Parliament passed the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act. Queen Victoria gave the Royal Assent on 9 July 1900. On 31 July 1900 Western Australia voted in favour of joining the Commonwealth.
West Ham is a real London suburb and so is East Ham, but I'm not sure if East Ham ever had a football team or, if it did, whether it was any good.
West Ham isnt that good either.
