Captured at Hale Farm and Village. An early 19th century historically restored village. (Bath, Ohio)

Photographed in response to this week's Flickr Friday theme: "Countryside." This little white frame house dates to the 19th century and is one of a collection of buildings from that era relocated to the Shoal Creek Living History Museum situated in Kansas City's 1,000-acre Hodge Park. (As with all my work, constructive critique is welcome, and faves are appreciated.)

The Rail Bridge is approx 20 years younger than the wooden pier designed in 1877 to bring train passengers to the ferry terminus. The Rail Bridge has stood the test of time sadly the railway pier was not thought worthy of maintaining once the Forth Road Bridge opened in 1964. I'm sure it will eventually succumb to the tide and storms

The four-masted fullrigger Lancing was originally (in 1865) built by Napier & Sons in Glasgow as screw steamer Péreire for the French line Compagnie Générale Transatlantique. Péreire stranded off St. Nazaire in 1888, but the wreck was refloated and taken to Blyth, where the engines were removed and the ship was converted to a fullrigger and renamed Lancing. After the conversion Lancing was mainly operated by Norwegian owners. The 113 m x 13.6 Lancing turned out to have excellent sailing characteristics. The almost 60 m high masts carried a total of 5080 m² sail on 34 sails. It once sailed 366 nautical miles in a day - which gives an average speed of 15 knots. Once Lancing sailed from England to Australia in just 64 days, which was as fast as the smaller clippers could do. The ship was broken up in 1925.

My second try with night pics.

I love dressing Edith as a late-19th century lady. I'm a bit obsessed with the late-19th/ early-20th cent era <3

 

I would like to thank Felicity for helping me setting this pic, I had a terrific evening and night with you taking photos, chatting and laughing ^.^ (and also a bit desperate and stressed with poor Arien lol). I hope that we can repeat it soon :)

When we uncover the stories of musical instruments from the exposition of the Czech Museum of Music, we return to the nineteenth century. Until the time that belonged to mechanical musical instruments - automatic telephones. Their improved variant includes an orchestrion.

 

At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, orchestrations became a fashion hit, and during the First Republic, the orchestrion used to be in almost every pub. Their brilliant sound had to replace the band and drown out the pub noise so that guests could hear the music and dance in the bar. The whole orchestra in one cabinetThe orchestra playing box used to be a work of art in itself, usually more or less decorated with carved details with various ornaments or superstructures, such as additional cymbals and other instruments. The compositions, which used to be 5-10, are written on a large wooden cylinder, using small iron pegs. As the cylinder rotated, it was they who instigated the instruments hidden in the orchestra's bowels. "The cylinder rotates," explains curator Peter Balog, "and the pins rotate, lifting the individual parts of the mechanism - one pin lifts such a lever, and when it is released, we hear the sound of one of the instruments - piano, drum, cymbal and more. .

Fort Mackinac (pronounced: MACK-in-awe) is a former British and American military outpost garrisoned from the late 18th century to the late 19th century in the city of Mackinac Island, Michigan, on Mackinac Island. The British built the fort during the American Revolutionary War to control the strategic Straits of Mackinac between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, and by extension the fur trade on the Great Lakes. The British did not relinquish the fort until fifteen years after American independence.

Fort Mackinac later became the scene of two strategic battles for control of the Great Lakes during the War of 1812. During most of the 19th century, it served as an outpost of the United States Army. Closed in 1895, the fort has been adapted as a museum on the grounds of Mackinac Island State Park

Among the thousands of sailing pictures from the late 19th century and the very early 20th century I have not seen many showing all female crews. Here is one: The Detroit Publishing Co. photo shows two elegantly dressed young ladies cruising with the catboat Mab somewhere in the U.S. in the 1880s or 1890s (there is no exact date).

Booth Bay, Maine -- There are several large 19th century sailing ships that have been beautifully restored and are kept in Boothbay. You can see them sailing several days a week loaded with tourists.

Missouri River Valley near Fort Benton

Chouteau County, Montana

 

Traveling US 87 south toward Yellowstone National Park, we found a pull-off that provided a sweeping view of the Missouri River valley through several turns near Fort Benton, Montana. Several signs provided historic information, from the Lewis & Clark Expedition's time in the area, to the fur traders who followed, and the area's time as a transportation and shipping center before railroads eclipsed steamboats in the 1880s. Two of the signs are provided below, but probably will not be large enough for those viewing on a small screen. The first states, "Below this point is a shelf in the river that prevented further passage." This made Fort Benton a major transportation center, with goods shipped by boat transferred to wagons that carried the goods to their final destinations in the northwestern United States and Canada. After the railroads came, agriculture became the lifeblood of the area.

Original, as in no water or bathroom in the entire house. The only nod to modernity is limited installation of electricity. These homes were inhabited until 2002.
