1967:
The Raffles Hotel, declared a National Monument by the Singapore government, was named for the founder of Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles.  Built in 1887, by 1904 it was reported to be "the most magnificent establishment of its kind East of Suez". Its reputation continues today as a five-star destination hotel.

1975:
Led Zeppelin's 18 month sabbatical was over, and on this day in 1975 they were in Minneapolis rehearsing for the next night's gig. They looked to be having a good time. Neal Preston was there taking photos - some of Led Zeppelin's most iconic images were from that rehearsal.
