GP15-1 1647 leads a pair of B23-7's on WADA-90, an extra SENH, through Danbury, Ct between Mallory's and Main Street. 11/14/90

Further down the Ribble, the Calder also joins from its origin in the West Yorkshire hills; from this point on the Ribble is a major river and it is understandable that in 2015 with the huge rainfall, and the flow from 3 seperate rivers the destruction was considerable.

 

Hacking Hall, on the right of the image, was built in 1609by Sir Thomas Walmsley, an eminent and troublesome Judge at times to the Queen. It is pretty much unchanged today (having been restored) - it replaced an earlier moated building of wood, which was closer to the barn, also pictured. The Hall remains in the ownership of the descendants of Walmsley, the Petre's.

The barn predates the hall by about 10 years.

 

In front of the Hall was the site of the old Ferry crossing, which until 1955 operated to cross the river.

 

A mound by the barn has been excavated and revealed a body, dating from 1250BC, and other artefacts from that era have been found in the area, it is thought that the nearby 'Jumbles Rocks" were a meeting and crossing point at this time.

On the side of river I am on, and behind me is another mound, this one more recent relating to the 'Battle of Whalley" fought in 798 where Wada was defeated in a Saxon power contest. This mound has not been excavated, but is said to contain the bodies of the warriors killed in that battle.

  

Peshwa Baji Rao I, prime minister to Chattrapati Shahu, laid the ceremonial foundation of his own residence on Saturday, January 10, 1730. It was named Shaniwarwada from the Marathi words Shaniwar (Saturday) and Wada ( any residence complex). The construction of Shaniwarwada was completed in 1732, at a total cost of Rs. 16,110, a very large sum at the time.

 

The Shaniwar Wada was originally the seven storied capital building of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire. It was supposed to be made entirely of stone but after the completion of the base floor, the people of Satara complained to the Siva(King) that a stone monument can be sanctioned and built only by the King himself and not the Peshwas. Following this, the remaining building had to be made of bricks. Ninety years later, the Wada was attacked by the British Artillery, all the top six stories collapsed leaving only the stone base. Hence only the stone base of the Shaniwar Wada remains can be seen today.

a tribute to Emi Wada

 

HERO is the most expensive Chinese movie to date. Zhang Yimou has created a stunning epic.

The huge scale, use of color, and beautiful cinematography make this as much a piece of visual art as of storytelling. The martial arts scenes, reminiscent of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, are awe-inspiring.

The story engages mind and emotion and draws us into the mystery of where the truth lies.

Hero is one of those near perfect blends of visual and story that film makes possible.

 

The exacting standards that were set for the story and the action sequences are no less stringent when it comes to the look of HERO. Three versions of the story, told from different perspectives each has its own color scheme – red, white and blue.

“The aesthetics of this film are inextricably bound up with the plot”, says director Zhang Yimou “The idea of using colors to tell the story came about quite early in the process of conceptualizing the film.

The look of the set, the costumes and so on was developed in concert with the script itself. I had an image in my head for a long time and then worked through the details of how to realize it through talking with the other people working on the film”.

Such obsessiveness is matched by Academy Award-winning costume designer, Emi Wada who cites director Zhang Yimou as one of her heroes.

For the costumes in HERO, Wada tried no less than thirty colors, hand dying each individual sample. However, after her colors were approved, Wada ran into an unforeseen problem. She elaborates: “We couldn’t make some colors with the dye and water in Beijing,” she sighed “Therefore we brought the dye from England and Japan and used mineral water to dye some of the fabric…we ended up with some thousand meters of cloth.”

So meticulous was Wada’s control of the design that the red costumes were created using fifty-four shades of color. Using different textures to characterize the individuals in the story.

Wada sought inspiration from ancient costumes in China, Korea and Japan. The silhouette of the costume is an ancient style. “But as this is an action movie, Wada explains “It also has to be as light as ballet costumes.”

Vishrambaag Wada is heritage structure/mansion located in the heart of Pune city Bajirao Road. It was the luxurious residence of Peshwa Bajirao II, the last Peshwa of Maratha confederacy, in early nineteenth century. The 20,000 sq. ft. wada presently houses a post office on its ground floor, a few other offices of the municipal corporation and a small museum of Maratha artefacts put together by noted Maratha historian, Babasaheb Purandare. This structure is famous for its fine entrance and the balcony with carved woodwork.

Shaniwarwada is a palace fort in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India. Built in 1746, it was the seat of the Peshwa rulers of the Maratha Empire until 1818 when the Peshwas surrendered to the British. The fort itself was largely destroyed in 1828 by an unexplained fire, but the surviving structures are now maintained as a tourist site.

Peshwa Baji Rao I, prime minister to Chattrapati Shahu, king of the Maratha empire, laid the ceremonial foundation of his own residence on Saturday, January 10, 1730. It was named Shaniwarwada from the Marathi words Shaniwar means "Saturday" in marathi and Wada a general term for any residence complex.

This statue is of Jujiro Wada, a Japanese immigrant who helped blaze the Iditarod Trail, a dog sled trail connecting Seward with Nome, Alaska before airplanes took on the role of transporting freight to remote villages (there were no roads, and for the most part there are still no roads to most of these places). The trail was instrumental in saving lives during a diptheria outbreak in Nome in 1925, when 20 sled teams delivered serum over the 1600 Km trail in 127 hours. The part the trail played in the history of Alaska is commemorated now with the Iditarod sled dog race from Anchorage to Nome.

Shaniwar Wada est un fort construit en 1732 qui a été jusqu'en 1818 la demeure des Peshwâ souverains de l'Empire marathe jusqu'à ce que les Peshwâ perdent le contrôle de la Compagnie des Indes après la troisième guerre anglo-marathe. Le palais était considéré comme le siège du pouvoir politique de l'Inde du XVIIIe siècle.
