I love @canbassa such a quaint and happy place. This image brightened up my day. I can’t wait to go back for another holiday. They have lots of activities for everyone or you can just relax by the pool and enjoy the glorious sunshine. Those wreaths are gorgeous @bouquetbcn
The large mill building (Building No. 1) was purported to be the largest weave-shed under one roof at that time. The original workers were predominantly Irish immigrants, and they were hard hit by the depression of the 1870s that began with the Panic of 1873 Unemployment rose and wages dropped appreciably from 1873 to 1875, causing bitter relations between workers and management in many places.
In April 1875, the 1,200 workers went on strike. The mill owners had raised rents in company-owned housing as well as prices at the company-owned store. Wages at the time were under $10 for a 67-hour work week. In one often-cited anecdote, a workingman said he and his daughter had worked full-time for more than three months but only had four dollars between them to show for it. The immediate cause of the strike was a pay cut of 12 percent in an attempt to stop unionization. Workers were told half of the pay cut would be restored to anyone who had not participated in trying to form a union at the company.
The company replaced the workers with French Canadians, who would come to number more than 70 percent of the population. Workers were evicted from company-owned housing, and the General Assembly passed a strict "tramp law" aimed at workers who became drifters after their strikes were broken. #befria#artfido#artpop#artjournal#abandoned_places#thisplacematters#supportwikipedia#luxuryapartments#quaint#preservehistory#sheeple

#MarilynMonroe was rumored to once have said, "Anybody who likes my house, I’m sure I’ll get along with." Well, another rumor has it that her ghost is still haunting the 2,624-square-foot Spanish-style Brentwood home in question — so you might have to get along with her, since she comes with the territory.
The romantic, intimate little bungalow sits on a 23,000-square-foot lot at the end of a cul-de-sac, and has been through many a renovation since Monroe's tragic death at age 36. Monroe, born Norma Jeane Mortenson, bought the house in 1962 and only lived there for four months before passing away of an alleged drug overdose. But for the short time she was there, reports Variety, she loved the property and "threw herself into making a home for herself. She planted an herb garden and in early #1962 traveled to Mexico to purchase authentic furniture, art, and tapestries for her new home." It was the only home she ever owned.The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, built in 1929, is listed with #MercerVine for $6.9 million and has a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, as well as a spacious courtyard garden with citrus trees, and retains many of its original charming details, like beamed ceilings, casement windows, and terra cotta tile floors.
