Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today

Salvador Dalí 1939.jpg

Salvador Dalí gave a lecture at the London International Surrealist Exhibition titled “Authentic Paranoiac Fantasies”. He brought two Russian wolfhounds on leashes and wore a deep-sea diving suit to symbolize descending to the depths of the subconscious, but found it impossible to breathe inside the diving helmet. Dalí nearly suffocated before his companions realized something was wrong and freed him, which the audience enjoyed immensely in the belief that it was all part of the act.

An amalgamation of Australian air carriers called Australian National Airways began operations.
