Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

The classical name for the island of Greece in the north-eastern Aegean Sea.

The word lesbian is derived from the poems of Sappho, born in Lesbos, which contain powerful emotional content directed toward other women and have frequently been interpreted as expressing homosexual love. Because of this association, Lesbos and especially the town of Eresos, her birthplace, are visited frequently by lesbian tourists.
