Major political events in 1907 would set up major events for the coming years. In a continuation of the civil unrest in the Russian Empire, there was a massive protest of over 40,000 people in front of the State Duma (a legislative body in the latter days of the Russian Empire) that had to be disbursed.
The unrest would culminate in a total revolution in Russian politics and society, with the Empire coming to an end with the abdication of Czar Nicholas II ten years later, in 1917.
In another major political event, Britain, France, and Russia formed the Triple Entente in 1907. This agreement between these powers formed the basis for what would eventually be called the Allied Powers of World War I. In the meantime, the Entente balanced out their rivals in the Triple Alliance, which consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy (although Italy would eventually join the Allies in 1915).
There were some notable developments in film and theatre in 1907 as well. In film, Louis B. Mayer opened his first movie theatre, and would go on to open a large chain of theatres. Mayer would become so successful that he eventually went into the production side of the movie business, developing the production company that would become known as Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Also, the film titled, “L’ Enfant prodigue,” Europe’s first feature-length film, premiered in Paris this year.
In the field of theatre, George Cohan’s Talk of the Town opened in New York City, and George Bernard Shaw’s Don Juan in Hell premiered in London.
In addition to these events, there were some significant cultural events that occurred this year. In Seattle, Washington, the famous Pike Place Market was dedicated. It would become a tremendous seafood market and the home of the immensely popular coffee company, Starbucks. 1907 would be significant for Western culture and the development of the science of psychology, as Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud metfor the first time this year in Vienna.
