It's popularity grew swiftly and the movement crossed the border into Scotland in 1868. The first lodge, the "Pride of Leven Lodge No1335" was founded in Dumbarton in 1868, in Glasgow in 1870 and in Edinburgh in 1876. In the 1990s, the society changed its name from the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds (Ashton Unity) to The Shepherds' Friendly Society and the society is still trading under this name.

J M Jacquard - Ne a Lyon le 7 Juillet 1752 Mort le 7 Aout 1834

Inventor of the Jacquard loom. Joseph Marie Jacquard (1752 - 1834). Lyons mechanic who developed the weaving loom which bears its name. It was first presented at the World Fair of Paris in 1801.

In 1801 he demonstrated an automatic loom incorporating revolutionary new technology; it was declared public property in 1806, and Jacquard was rewarded with a pension and a royalty on each machine. His loom utilized interchangeable punched cards that controlled the weaving of the cloth so that any desired pattern could be obtained automatically. The Jacquard loom's technology became the basis of the modern automatic loom and a precursor of the modern computer. His punched cards were adapted by Charles Babbage as an input/output medium for his proposed analytical engine and by Herman Hollerith to feed data to his census machine, and punched cards were used for inputting data into early digital computers.

E Pluribus Unum - General Grant, President - Unknown
E Pluribus Unum - General Grant, President - Unknown

The Ulysses S. Grant Homepage illuminates a figure profoundly misunderstood in history and in popular culture. Often portrayed as a slovenly drunkard, Grant was actually a modest and moral man, uncommonly devoted to his wife and children. Possessing a keen and understated sense of humor, his droll wit made him something of a raconteur with his friends.

Grant was an outstanding military figure and the savior of the Union during the Civil War, as well as the 18th President of the United States from 1869-77. He was an author of unusual ability and his Memoirs are widely regarded as one of the great books written in the English language. He was also a complex individual with uncommon virtues.

Comment from a viewer - Rowan:-
I believe the bookmark is much more likely to be referring to an Australian Patriotic Fund of the first world war, as the two flags are the Union Jack and the Australian Flag.

Cheers, Rowan
