New painting of the white Conway tower at Greve de Lecq. It's painted white as a navigational aid for ships ⛵the tower was started in 1780 so it's one of the oldest of this type in Jersey.

One more from my walk this morning along a section of the River Wandle. In training for a half marathon walk I’m doing next weekend. This is Merton Abbey Mills previously owned by William Morris. #mertonabbeymills #riverwandle #williammorris #localhistory #beautiful #light #walk #walklondon #londonlife #travel #travellondon #southlondon #history #local #love #justwalk #discovery #justgoshoot
Hey! Do you ever make something, fully intending to sell it..... and then end up completely unable to resist keeping it yourself?
I made this rough moonstone and sterling silver pendant inspired by the half-demolished old Stokes’ warehouse on Mint Lane.
This tangible local heritage feels precious to me like any precious stone - and held precariously by scaffolding it seems all the more fleeting & fragile.
I was also shocked and disheartened to hear that the old radar dishes at Stenigot have been dismantled for scrap over these past few days.
It makes it all the more evident that we really must do all we can to capture our heritage, grab it with both hands, before the wrong hands let it crumble. This is just my little way of carrying it with me.

Remember the mock apple pie from our first post? We gave it a go. Critics are calling it, “Not the worst thing I’ve ever tasted,” and “Kind of like sweet papier maché glue”.

Very proud to have helped Wells harbour master Robert Smith MBE with his beautiful book, "Crossing the Bar - Tales of Wells Harbour.” His first book signing will be on Sunday 28th October at the Wells Maltings, 11am-1pm. Snap it up for Christmas presents while you can! All proceeds to go to local charities.

The stories he tells capture the soul of #wellsnextthesea Some have been passed down through the generations of his own family – resident in Wells since at least the early 1800s - some are from the harbour archive, and some from the memories of local people. Many have never been told in print before. 
The book is packed with rare historical photos, beautiful illustrations and specially commissioned full colour photographs.

Dorfkirche Biestow: Mauerbäumchen. (3/3, Oktober 2018)
.
Die Linde bei der Dorfkirche ist etwas besonderes. Wie viele Jahrhunderte sie dort schon steht, kann man nicht mit Sicherheit sagen. Mich faszinierte, dass der Stamm gemauert (!) wurde - der Rest ist mit mehreren Stützen vor dem Umfallen gesichert. Ich hab mich gefragt, was Menschen dazu bringt, diesen Aufwand zu betreiben, wenn ein Baum doch nur ein Baum ist? Offensichtlich ist er mehr als das - und das völlig zu Recht. . 
Interesse an mehr Geschichte und Natur aus Mecklenburg-Vorpommern? @shores_in_flames folgen 😊

Did you know there were once tennis courts right on the shore of Nita Lake? This image is part of a postcard used to advertise Whistler Inn, an "ultra-modern yet rustic lodge". 100 Years of Tennis is only open for one more week so if you haven't been by to learn about the history of the sport in Whistler be sure to stop in!

History of Saltburn Part 2

The Roman’s officially ruled “Britannia” from 43 AD - c.410. The remains of a Roman signal station have been found on top of Huntcliff.  Interestingly, the archaeological site was dated as being built in approximately 360 AD, towards the end of Roman rule.  This would perhaps explain why the remains of several, probably murdered, bodies - ranging from a 2 to a 70 year old - were found at the bottom of a well that remained intact enough for it to be excavated during 1911 and 1912. The image shows excavations in progress. The deep pit in the foreground is the well; in the background are the remains of the rampart of the signal station.  What was left of the signal station succumbed to coastal erosion in 1979. #saltburnbythesea #coastalerosion #localhistory #genealogist #theromans #romansignalstation #uniquegifts4all #familyhistory #familyhistoryresearch #ancestry #familytrees #familytree #familymystery

Happened to catch this pic, of what looks like petroglyphs, climbing around the Table Rock Wilderness area. The main trailhead for Table Rock is the same path used by Native Americans, that was actually part of the larger cross-Cascades trail system. Gotta love a little local history 🌲❤🌲

Exploring local history, inspired by @inoshibby
I used to pass by this spot every single day and for the longest time I thought it was a statue of Amelia Earhart... Well it is in fact a young Belgian flight lieutenant who in 1943 disobeyed orders and attacked a Gestapo building located at the very place where his statue now stands. In a wonderful act of Belgian-ness, he was both demoted and awarded a medal for his action. #brussels #brussel #bruxelles #localhistory

#forsalesunday This stunning stone, 1894 house with the giant wooden crown isn't exactly for sale as it just recently sold.  It's split into apartments.  Anyone ever been inside?  There weren't too many interior pics on the listing, but I'm curious if there are any remaining original features.  It sure is unique on the outside. (642 W 8th for the listing). .

10/21/1835 — The Mob 🤬
.
It’s a bummer, but it’s true —
.
Abolitionism faced major opposition in Boston. Why? Well, as an industrial center of the North ⬆️, Boston and its textile businesses relied heavily on cheap cotton from Southern slave labor ⬇️. To many, turning a profit 💸 was more important than, you know, other people’s freedom 🔓.
.
All that sunk to a new low today in 1835 👎🏻
.
‘Twas an uncharacteristically hot fall day ☀️🍂 as William Lloyd Garrison, editor of the abolitionist newspaper “The Liberator”, ventured downtown to address the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society. Garrison had offered to host the women in Stacy Hall, a humble classroom that was connected to “The Liberator” office at ‪46 Washington Street‬ 🏘
.
Infuriated by the prospect of WOMEN pontificating on SLAVERY, a pack of pissed off, well-to-do “gentlemen” had started to gather outside the Hall 🎩🎩. The meeting started, and as Garrison would later recall, “the howlings of the riotous throng” outside became a threatening distraction 🗣🗯🔥
.
Enter popular Boston Mayor Theodore Lyman, who sided with the boys outside but wanted to avoid bloodshed because God forbid a politician should have to answer for the violence he tacitly endorses 🙃. Despite their frustration, the Society saw the danger closing in and agreed to Lyman’s evacuation plan 🚪
.
The women marched out of Stacy Hall two by two, white and black women together. They remained scolded, but unharmed.
.
Garrison met a different fate. The mob tied a rope around his waist, ripped off most of his clothes, and started dragging him towards Boston Common. Some shouted to tar and feather Garrison; others called to lynch him then and there. They very well might have done both if Mayor Lyman hadn’t intervened and whisked Garrison away to City Hall.
.
Don’t make a hero out of Lyman, though. He still had Garrison arrested for – wait for it – disturbing the peace ⛓✌🏻
.
Over the next 30 years, Boston’s abolitionists would meet many other mobs out to threaten, vilify, and assault them. Their courage to continue with moral clarity on their side remains the example to follow.

Management at the Wethered Brewery, Marlow (doing their best to dispel the Mr Monopoly stereotype) posing with staff at an unknown date in the 19th century. The final brew on the site was in January 1988, the site is now flats.

Roker Park has become a little bit Jurassic with this years illuminations. But it’s not the first time dinosaurs have invaded the Park.  Back in 1936, it was felt that the illuminations would grow and eventually become a popular tourist attraction.
Initially the lights were confined to Roker Park with a small charge being made for entry.  In addition a number of the Corporation trams which travelled along the seafront were decorated and lit up for the duration.
The venture proved successful and it was agreed that the illuminations would become an annual event. #locallandmark #rokerpark #roker #rokerseaburn #illuminations #sunderland #localhistory #walks #history #dinosaurs #england #love #lights

The venture proved successful and it was agreed that the illuminations would become an annual event. #locallandmark  #rokerpark  #roker  #rokerseaburn  #illuminations  #sunderland  #localhistory  #walks  #history  #dinosaurs  #england  #love  #lights

An apple a day keeps the doctor away? George Middlemiss, a doctor of medicine, appears in quite a few deeds in our collection dating between 1884 and 1913. We wonder what he thought about apples! #AppleDay

When you walk around the pub, you'll notice some stunning heritage artwork and artifacts adorning the walls.

Thanks again to The Royston & District Museum for allowing us to display such a rich history.

⁣Over the next few days I’m working with @valredhouse (posting @ruins_and_reveals) to retrace some of the eight motoring trips W.G. Hoskins designed in his 1948 publication Touring Leicestershire, illustrated by F.L. Attenborough’s photographs. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We start our journey from the former student halls of residence for the University of Leicester. This 1960s and now listed building has been converted to a hotel. 8.5 stars on booking.com, and rightly so. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Brick and concrete, generous windows, log fires in the communal spaces and a pond outside the former women’s quarters, where we are staying. In the pond beneath our windows, a huge stone, carried and thrown in the water by male students wanting to demonstrate their masculinity. The rock has also been conferred listed status.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
The intellectual community in Leicester and the Midlands post -WW2 was vigorous - Hoskins and Richard Hoggart at Leicester University and Stuart Hall at Birmingham. The growth of socially-driven theatre and arts was also striking. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣We made our first trip following in the footsteps of Hoskins and Attenborough yesterday. We were anticipating huge change in the surroundings that Hoskins travelled through, but there seem to be remarkably few. We found a church that Hoskins described as ‘amusing’ and it is. More about what we saw and did along Route One tomorrow - including a very strange find. ⁣⁣ ⁣

Riding the vintage bus to unveil two revamped bus stops on the doorstep of Anzac Cottage.

The bus stops are now memorials to Nui Dat, Australian Taskforce base during the Vietnam War, and the Gallipoli landing during WWI.

The Friends of Anzac Cottage worked with artist Drew Straker, the Australian and New Zealand Defence Forces, Mount Hawthorn Primary School and numerous community sponsors to make this longtime vision a reality.

Community is at the heart of all that the Friends of Anzac Cottage do and the City of Vincent is a proud major sponsor of this heartfelt project. A huge thank you to Pete Ramsey and Anne Chappel for making this happen!

Standing stone at Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre, Perthshire. Once believed to mark the grave of one of the heroes who fell at the battle of Mons Graupius, it is known by some as the Roman stone, but is more likely to be far older than that. The rock has a few cup marks on its surface. -

Look at these old cigarette packets that one of my friends has. He is in the process of converting an old chapel into his home. He has found loads of hidden treasure in the chapel and under the floor boards! How COOL!!!

The oldest part of the the Blue Boar was built in the 14th century and became an inn in Tudor times. All Saints Church opposite has the only triangular tower in England. In 1652 Lawrence Washington, great great grandfather of George Washington, the first President of the United States was buried here! 🇺🇸 || #ThisIsMaldon

It's not just big houses we spend our time visiting. Yesterday we stopped off at Shepherd's Wheel on our way to Forge Dam cafe. A nod to the seemingly hidden history of steel along the river. Always worth a visit if you are in Sheffield.

“And there, westward and heavenward, to the high ridge of Whiteface, northward to the northern limit of the mountains, southward to their highest peaks, was spread the full half-circle panorama of the Adirondacks. It was as if we had never seen the mountains before.” (from This Is My Own, Rockwell Kent.) #localtreasure #localhistory #workingfarm and #dairy #rockwellkent #legacy #laboroflove #thankyoudavidandrhonda

If you didn’t make it out to the Historic Colombian Cemetery for the harvest festival.  This pic was of the mock green burial we all got to experience and be a part of.  During these burials friend and family help carry the casket to the site and help fill in the hole. According to the cemetery owner/undertaker participation can help with the grieving process, that makes a lot of sense to me. It was a great day.  Keep an eye out for this event next year. If you are in the area in the future check out this place, it has a really good vibr and some art installations will be going in at some point too.  #greenburial #greenburials #naturopathicdoc #greenspace #harvestfestival #celebratelife #localhistory

A monument with plaque dedicated in 1913 commemorating an 1878 “massacre” of three local white boys by Native Americans in Colorado Springs. No mention of the 150 Cheyenne and Arapaho woman, children, and babies slaughtered by U.S. Calvary at Sand Creek in 1864. #ironic #victorwriteshistory #heritage #monuments #colorado #bikelife #localhistory #citypark #coloradosprings
I have lived in Florida off and on for the last 31 years. One of the many things I love about the Central Florida area is it’s proximity to, well, everything. I was looking for something to do one Saturday and stumbled upon the Fort Christmas Historical Park. Situated in Christmas, Florida between Orlando and Cape Canaveral, it’s a replica of the original fort that was constructed in the 1800’s. 
Walking around felt like being transported back in time. Not only do they have a Fort you can tour (for FREE), you can wander around through the restored homes surrounding it. Seeing these homes, I am in awe of how early pioneers lived. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, it’s definitely worth a visit!

Have you seen @thespiritsspeak? Salem Historical Society trustees worked with @essexheritage to help create an accurate retelling of Salem's history combined with the mysticism of a Victorian seance. We are always looking for exciting ways to engage with Salem's history and we love this unique program. Be sure and check it out this October and let us know what you think!

It's an awful, cold, dreary day today so here's a picture from a nicer day.  This is the William Sands House on 6th Street.  William Sands was a manufacturer of crackers, cakes, cookies, and was the owner of the Erie Steam Bakery on 4th and French (that I posted about earlier in the summer). The house was built in 1887 and is Victorian Eclectic in design.  It was the Boothby Inn Bed and Breakfast for a while and now it is (another) law office. It has some amazing exterior details, especially in the brickwork and stained glass.

The Candler County Historical Society seeks the public's help. We are working on an exhibit of quilts that will open on December 1st. The focus of our exhibit will be on the quilts made in Candler County during the 1930s and 1940s by the members of our local homemaker demonstration clubs. At this time we have located four of the quilts to have on display. We are asking if anyone knows of any other quilts that might be in existence, and if so, would you place them on loan with the History Museum during our Quilt Exhibit? 
We are currently researching the women on the quilts, and any information you may offer would be appreciated. We would like to have a little history of the makers of each quilt, and would like to do the same on any other quilts found in the community from these club quiltings. 
Contact the History Museum at (912)685-2450 if you have any information that can help in locating the other quilts. 
Pictured: A quilt that was finished in 1941 from one club. The names in this photo are Mrs. Claude Sconyers, Mrs. T. L. Lanier, Mrs. George W. Bird, Jeannette Lanier age 2, Mrs. H. L. Cartee, Mrs. Hedgwick Lanier, Mrs. E. Lanier, Little Patsy Lanier age 4, Mrs. L. A. Hunnicutt and Mrs. Eurastus Donaldson.

David Williams appreciated the importance of recording finds with a good local story, even if they were less than 300 years old. Such is today's find - a Distinguished Conduct Medal awarded to Sgt G. H. Humber of the Royal Field Artillery for service in the First World War. David tracked down as much information as he could on Humber with the intention of returning the medal to his family, which duly happened. For the full story, check out the Database record for the medal under the record ID SUR-5ADA50.

Happy International Archaeology Day! Did you know the Rochester Hills Museum conducted an archaeological excavation here at the Van Hoosen Farm from 1988 to 2007. Several sites were excavated, including the original site of the 1840 Van Hoosen Farmhouse, the site of the 1823 Taylor family log cabin, and the site of the Big Barn, which was constructed in 1874 and destroyed by fire in 1968. Spearheaded by our incredible volunteer Debbie Remer, the excavation was completed by hundreds of volunteers and students. The artifacts found during this time helped expand what we know about the Taylor and Van Hoosen families as well as the beautiful site they lived and worked on. #rochesterhills #museum #michigan #vanhoosenfarm #archaeology #history #historicplace #historyhappenedhere #thisplacematters #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #localhistory

We had a lovely afternoon touring the historic Big Shoal Cemetery and hearing some of its stories (and finding leaves and eating doughnuts 😆).

Hevoskauppaa Kuopion torilla! 9-vuotias tamma Vekkuran Tähti oli yksi kolmesta suomenhevosesta, joiden kaupittelua olin katsomassa tänään Kuopion torin 200-vuotistapahtumassa. Sielläpä opin myös, että Kuopion tori tunnettiin kai silloin ennen wanhaan erityisesti hevosten kauppapaikkana, vaikka viime kerrasta olikin ehtinyt jo kulua aikaa.

10/20/2004 — The Comeback ⚾️
.
As the Sox inch closer to their 9th World Series title, it’s incumbent upon each of us to commemorate one of the greatest comebacks in sports history ↩️
.
Game 7 of the 2004 American League Championship.
.
Even the most egregious of bandwagoners knows that Boston was on pins and needles 📌 in October ‘04. Games 1-3 shamed the Sox, including a jaw-dropping 19-8 loss to the Yankees at Fenway 😵. Game 4 wasn’t looking better but turned around on Dave Roberts’ run home at the bottom of the 9th. Then it got (more) personal in Game 6 when A-Rod tried to weasel his way out of an out by slapping the ball of Bronson Arroyo’s hand 🏃🏻‍♂️
.
It would all come down to Game 7 😳
.
Lesser fans would have assumed inevitable victory; reveled in a Cinderella rally back from an 0-3 deficit, but Boston had 8️⃣6️⃣ years of heartbreak and a string of ALCS Game 7 losses – 1946, 1967, 1975, 1986, and *gulp* 😢 2003 – feeding its cynicism.
.
The first 2 innings turned that hysteria into hilarity 😂 . First came Big Papi’s 2️⃣-run-homer at the top of the 1st; then Johnny Damon’s grand slam racked up a 6️⃣-run lead for the sox in the first two innings. Sure, Pedro Martinez’ give-ups inspired some late-inning jitters over the bedeviled Curse, but the Sox sailed to an 1️⃣0️⃣-3️⃣ victory just after midnight.
.
With that, the Red Sox proved themselves the underdogs of the century 🐶. They’d come back against their arch rival and turned 86 years of dread into a thrilling victory for anyone who carried Boston in their hearts ♥️
.
They were headed to the World Series... which we’ll get to 😉
