Jumbo's Hide, Elvis's Ride, and the Tooth of the Buddha
More Marvelous Tales of Historical ArtifactsBook - 2000
Imagine King John of England in 1215, affixing his seal to the Magna Carta with no idea of how it would change the course of history. Or imagine chairmaker John Folwell in colonial Philadelphia -- could he have foreseen that the chair he made would be used by George Washington in the Constitutional Convention, or that it would survive to be displayed in the place that came to be known as Independence Hall? Could Marilyn Monroe have known how popular the white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch would become -- or that later it would be involved in a massive New York police manhunt?
