The end of the 19th and the beginning of 20th centuries marked a change in era, and not just for those who mark time based on the birth of Christ. There were, of course, many other calendar systems in use 1900 after the birth of Christ, all reflecting what was still at the time a tremendous richness of language and cultures around the planet. For examples the Ethiopians marked 1900 AD/CE as the years 1892-1893, the Buddhist said it was the years 2443 and 2444, and the Chinese calendar started the 77th Year of the Rat on 31 January 1900.
