3. Battery, Baghdad, 250 BCE
The Baghdad Battery is believed to be about 2000 years old (from the Parthian period, roughly 250 BCE to CE 250). The jar was found in Khujut Rabu just outside Baghdad and is composed of a clay jar with a stopper made of asphalt. Sticking through the asphalt is an iron rod surrounded by a copper cylinder. When filled with vinegar – or any other electrolytic solution – the jar produces about 1.1 volts.
4. Titanic’s Sunken Sister Ship
HMHS Britannic was the third and largest Olympic-class ocean liner of the White Star Line. She was the sister ship of RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic. She was launched just before the start of the First World War and was laid up at her builders in Belfast for many months before being put to use as a hospital ship in 1915. She was shaken by an explosion, caused by an underwater mine, in the Kea Channel off the Greekisland of Kea on the morning of 21 November 1916, and sank 55 minutes later, killing 30 people.
There were 1,066 people on board, with 1,036 survivors taken from the water and lifeboats; roughly an hour later, at 9:07 AM, the ship sank. There have been talks of the wreck becoming an underwater museum but nothing has materialised.

9. Pellegrini’s Bar
This is just my kinda place: Opened in 1954, by the two Pelligrini brothers, it was the first genuine Italian-style coffee house in Melbourne. On their retirement in 1974, the Pellegrini brothers sold it to the current owners, Nino and Sisto.
