How do you research an old painting?

There is no simple answer. If the painting is signed and if you can work out the name, first try to find out more by using websearches. (Note that many paintings are signed on the back). Also try to work out the genre and period; at the risk of pointing out the obvious, if the painting is signed 'James A. Smith' for example there may be several artists with the this name ... If the painting is unsigned you will need to get advice from someone with a good knowledge of art history. It may be possible for an art auction house to identify the artist on the basis of a really good photo, or at least make an informed guess. If there is an art museum near you, they may be able to help you. (Sometimes it is necessary, in the interests of preservation, to have an additional canvas stuck to the back of the original canvas, especially if the original has buckled. If there is a signature on the back, always take a good photograph of it before having it covered up. If you have to have a painting restored get advice on restorers as their competence varies enormously. Find out which restorers are used by an art museum and/or auction houses).

What date did Alice Springs get its name?

Alice Springs was initially the name given to the telegraph repeater station which operated from 1872 to 1932 in central Australia. The actual town, originally surveyed in 1888, was 3km south of the telegraph station. Until the early 1930s, the official name of the town was Stuart. However, this created confusion for administrators in Adelaide, so on 31 August 1933 the township of Stuart was officially gazetted Alice Springs.

The springs after which the town was named were discovered on 11 March 1871 by the team building the Overland Telegraph Line. They lie to the north-east of the town and were named after the wife of Charles Todd, the man instrumental in securing the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line for South Australia. Surveyors William Whitfield Mills and John Ross both claim credit for the discovery of the springs.

Why isn't the Australian Capital Territory a State?

Because originally the two most influential states NSW and Victoria could not agree on what state would house the Capital, so the only way to settle it was to create a non state to house the capital in the middle of no where. (political thinking) Makes one wonder why the whole world is still at war.

Charles Darwin
Northern Territory

What did Charles Darwin do?

He laid the ground work for the theory of evolution, and created Darwinism (Survival of the fittest.) (or Natural Selection)

He traveled to the Galapagos Islands, and on each island discovered new types of Finch birds. He then studied the environment they survived in, and theorized that they must have evolved form a similar bird, and evolved different traits to match the environment they were in.

Charles Darwin DID NOT state that man evolved from the ape, or even the Chimp. He stated, in so many words, that the chimp and man (or hominids, which they are referred to) diverged into two separate and distinct species. If, for example, man evolved from the ape or the chimp, there would be no more chimps left! There is absolutely nothing within "On the Origin of the Species" that states that man evolved from the ape or the chimp. This is a farce that has evolved through time since the time Darwin released his works.

Charles Darwin studied medicine at Edinburgh and for the ministry at Cambridge.

Overseas territory tied to parent country?

Some of the French "outre mer" is part of France, much like Hawaii is a part of the US. None of the British Overseas Territories are - they are possessions. Holland and Denmark are the other EU states that have OTs, and the relationships vary, so there is no one answer to this question.

Some of the OTs have reciprocal residence rights, some do not.

I don't know what "tied" means. If it means they're related in some way, yes, they're all related in some way. But that isn't very informative, is it?

How many people died in the Darwin bombings by the Japanese?

It is unknown how many people were killed in the Darwin bombings, but according to the original records, 243 civilians and military personnel were killed. This number was later revised to "about 250", and later again, revised upwards still.

The real toll is believed to have been much higher, as these figures did not include the many Indigenous Australians who lived in the area. Also, not all of the crews of some of the merchant ships were fully known.

There was one report in the 1990s which suggested the figure was 1,024, but there is no substance to this claim.

It is interesting to note that, at the time, the government announced that 17 people had been killed, in an effort to preserve morale.
