Uses of umbrellas

Who invented the umbrella? People have different opinions. Some people say that the Egyptians were the first to use umbrellas. As early as 1200 BC, Egyptian nobles often asked slaves to hold umbrellas for them when they travelled. In fact, China is the hometown of umbrellas. Umbrellas appeared as early as 4000 years ago. According to the "Historical Records", the earliest umbrella was called "Gai", such as "Qin Ye, the prime minister of the five doctors, does not sit and ride in the heat, and he does not cover it in the summer." Another example: "Confucius will go, rain without cover." The cover mentioned here is an umbrella.

After the invention of paper, paper umbrellas appeared, and they were called green-oiled paper umbrellas in Song Dynasty. Later, it was used not only to keep out the rain, but also to shade.

Lifting it is like lifting dumbbells. Therefore, only some nobles have it in their homes, and they are only held by servants for the master to shuttle between the gate and the castle short-circuit in order to wait for the carriage. It was not until the 17th century that a bold gentleman and famous traveler Jonas Hanway brought the umbrella back to Europe. When Londoners first saw Jonas Hanway strolling casually on the streets of London with a weird thing, they regarded him as a lunatic, people hit him with rocks, ladies screamed to avoid, and coachmen. Chasing him freely, thinking that he has blasphemed the will of the gods. But Jonas boldly faced people's ridicule. Soon, more and more people on the streets of London were holding a stick with something like a tarp over it. If it had not had the courage of Jonas Hanway at the time, the foggy Britain would not have the reputation of the Umbrella Kingdom today.
