Location of Windmills at Kinderdijk

[edit on Wikidata]

The windmills at Kinderdijk are a group of 19 monumental windmills in the Alblasserwaard polder, in the province of South Holland, Netherlands. Most of the mills are part of the village of Kinderdijk in the municipality of Molenwaard, and one mill, De Blokker, is part of the municipality of Alblasserdam. Built in 1738 and 1740, to keep water out of the polder, it is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands and one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites. The mills are listed as national monuments and the entire area is a protected village view since 1993. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF; French: Aviation royale canadienne, ARC) is the air force of Canada. Its role is to "provide the Canadian Forces with relevant, responsive and effective airpower".[3] The RCAF is one of three environmental commands within the unified Canadian Armed Forces. As of 2013, the Royal Canadian Air Force consists of 14,500 Regular Force and 2,600 Primary Reserve personnel, supported by 2,500 civilians, and operates 258 manned aircraft and 9 unmanned aerial vehicles.[1][4] Lieutenant-General Al Meinzinger is the current Commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force and Chief of the Air Force Staff.[5]

The Royal Canadian Air Force is responsible for all aircraft operations of the Canadian Forces, enforcing the security of Canada's airspace and providing aircraft to support the missions of the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Army. The RCAF is a partner with the United States Air Force in protecting continental airspace under the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). The RCAF also provides all primary air resources to and is responsible for the National Search and Rescue Program.

The RCAF traces its history to the Canadian Air Force, which was formed in 1920. The Canadian Air Force was granted royal sanction in 1924 by King George V to form the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1968, the RCAF was amalgamated with the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Army, as part of the unification of the Canadian Forces. Air units were split between several different commands: Air Defence Command (interceptors), Air Transport Command (airlift, search and rescue), Mobile Command (tactical fighters, helicopters), Maritime Command (anti-submarine warfare, maritime patrol), as well as Training Command.

In 1975, some commands were dissolved (ADC, ATC, TC), and all air units were placed under a new environmental command called simply Air Command (AIRCOM). Air Command reverted to its historic name of "Royal Canadian Air Force" in August 2011.[6] The Royal Canadian Air Force has served in the Second World War, the Korean War, the Persian Gulf War, as well as several United Nations peacekeeping missions and NATO operations. As a NATO member, the force maintained a presence in Europe during the second half of the 20th century.

This is in Jackson, Michigan, and "entertaining" is exactly the right word.

 

MY RESEARCH HAS REVEALED that the wall is probably from the 19th century. Here is how come:

 

• The wall is presently part of a one-story extension of 175 W. Pearl St., erected circa 1850. According to Chapter 4 of a 2004 survey by Commonwealth Cultural Resources Group, Inc. that one-story attachment is probably a remnant of a demolished building that was called the "Straub Block."

• The Straub Block, at 157 W. Pearl St., is listed in the 1899 Polk city directory for Jackson, which I viewed on ancestrylibrary.com.

 

OK? We can feel okay about pointing at the wall and saying "nineteenth century," right?

[editar datos en Wikidata]

Coiro es una parroquia del municipio de Cangas, en la comunidad autónoma de Galicia, España.

 

Datos básicos

Según datos del padrón de 2010, contaba con una población de 6.584 habitantes,1​ repartidos por una red de 24 entidades de población esparcidas por un valle litoral que ostenta una elevada densidad poblacional (877,87 hab./km²).

 

Geografía

Aunque en lo fundamental y en lo social Coiro es una parroquia interior, en su costa se sitúa la playa del municipio más transitada, por estar junto al caso urbano, la playa de Rodeira, que se complementa con las más pequeñas y desconocidas playas de los Alemanes y del Canaval. Coiro está situada en el extremo este del territorio municipal, en el límite con Moaña.

 

En tierra adentro, la parroquia de Coiro guarda verdaderos rincones naturales, alguno declarado Espacio Natural Protegido, como la Carballeira de Coiro, que es un bosque típico atlántico en donde abunda el roble, carballo en gallego, el aliso y el abedul. Conforma el espacio el río Bouzos, en el cual, como en todos los ríos y arroyos de estas tierras, se situaban numerosos molinos de los que quedan restos más o menos conservados, ya que han venido moliendo hasta fechas relativamente recientes. Alguno, como el llamado de Fausto, ha sido restaurado para mostrar su funcionamiento.

 

En la parroquia de Coiro se desarrollaron importantes familias que formaron parte de la aristocracia rural, como los Mondragón, marqueses de Santa Cruz de Rivadulla. Esto ha hecho que existan numerosos pazos y edificios blasonados. Entre los pazos destacan los de A Retirosa y O Xistro. La iglesia de San Salvador es un monumento interesante en el que destaca lo desproporcionado de su torre barroca.

Location of Aqueduct of Segovia

[edit on Wikidata]

The Aqueduct of Segovia (or more precisely, the aqueduct bridge) is a Roman aqueduct in Segovia, Spain. With the Pont du Gard in France, it is one of the best-preserved elevated Roman aqueducts. It is the foremost symbol of Segovia, as evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms.

The aqueduct once transported water from the Rio Frio river, situated in mountains 17 km (11 mi) from the city in the La Acebeda region. It runs 15 km (9.3 mi) before arriving in the city.

The water was first gathered in a tank known as El Caserón (or Big House), and was then led through a channel to a second tower known as the Casa de Aguas (or Waterhouse). There it was naturally decanted and sand settled out before the water continued its route. Next the water traveled 728 m (796 yd) on a one-percent grade until it was high upon the Postigo, a rocky outcropping on which the old city center, the Segovia Alcázar, was built. Then, at Plaza de Díaz Sanz (Díaz Sanz Plaza), the structure makes an abrupt turn and heads toward Plaza Azoguejo (Azoguejo Plaza). It is there the monument begins to display its full splendor. At its tallest, the aqueduct reaches a height of 28.5 m (93 ft 6 in), including nearly 6 m (19 ft 8 in) of foundation. There are both single and double arches supported by pillars. From the point the aqueduct enters the city until it reaches Plaza de Díaz Sanz, it includes 75 single arches and 44 double arches (or 88 arches when counted individually), followed by four single arches, totalling 167 arches in all. The construction of the aqueduct follows the principles laid out by Vitruvius as he describes in his De Architectura published in the mid-first century.

Clifty Creek flows to Indian Creek, which flows to Sugar Creek, which flows to the Wabash River, which flows to the Ohio River.

 

This 1932 publication asserts that all bedrock exposures in the Pine Hills area are part of the Borden Formation [Borden Group].

 

The Borden Group is from the Osagean Age (348 to 340 mya), spanning from the Tournaisian Age to the Visean Age of the early-to-middle Mississippian Epoch of the Carboniferous Period of the Paleozoic Era.

Roker (/ˈroʊkər/) is a tourist resort and affluent area of Sunderland, North East England, bounded on the south by the River Wear and Monkwearmouth, on the east by the North Sea, to the west by Fulwell and on the north by Seaburn. It is administered as part of the City of Sunderland.

 

The majority of the houses in Roker are terraced or semi-detached. Further west, to the part bordering Fulwell, are cul-de-sacs with semi-detached bungalows, these being owned mainly by members of Roker's sizeable elderly population. On Roker Terrace (Roker's main street) are exclusive apartments and hotels which overlook the seafront.

 

In addition to Seaburn seafront, the coast at Roker seafront plays host to Sunderland International Airshow, the biggest free airshow in Europe, which takes place each year, usually over the last weekend in July.

History

 

Roker and Seaburn, 1970

The story of Roker begins in 1587, when the Abbs family were granted land on the north side of the River Wear on the condition that they provided six soldiers to defend the mouth of the river. Fast forward to 1840, when Roker Terrace was built upon the cliff tops, along with Monkwearmouth baths and Roker Park soon after. The pier and lower promenade were built six years later. In 1898 Roker Park Stadium was built and Roker became known worldwide for being home to Sunderland A.F.C.. The stadium was used for ninety-nine years until 1997. In the early 20th century Roker became a hugely popular resort for locals and tourists alike, and in 1928 it was taken over by the Borough of Sunderland, along with Fulwell and Seaburn.

 

Steven Grieveson, the Sunderland Strangler operated in Roker.

  

Roker Pier (the North Pier)

In 1995 Roker Park Conservation Area was declared.[1]

 

Landmarks

St Andrew's Church (1905–07) is recognised as one of the finest churches of the first half of the twentieth century and the masterpiece of Edward Schroeder Prior.

 

One well-known landmark of sorts in Roker is the Bungalow Cafe, which is an old-fashioned café in a tiny bungalow on the upper promenade. Also famous is the signpost next to the café, marked: "To Beach" (pointing towards the beach), "To Village" (pointing into Roker), "To Bungalow" (pointing to the cafe), and "To Germany" (pointing out to sea).

 

A museum is located in the Roker Watch House which was originally opened in 1906 as the headquarters of the Roker Volunteer Life Brigade. It is open every Sunday afternoon and on Bank Holiday Mondays.[2]

 

Other nearby landmarks are the statue of Bede's cross on the cliff top near Roker Park and St Peter's Church, Monkwearmouth. The cross recognises the work of the Venerable Bede, who worked in the North-East all his life at the twin monasteries of Wearmouth and Jarrow. There is bid for the twin monasteries to gain World Heritage Site status.

The lighthouse from the Old South Pier was removed to Roker seafront in 1983. Designed by Thomas Meik, it dates from 1856

From 1717 the newly formed River Wear Commission began to improve the harbour entrance at the mouth of the Wear. By 1750 a pair of breakwaters had been built (which survive in truncated form as the 'Old' North and South Piers).

 

By the beginning of the next century each had a lighthouse at its end. (The lighthouse which stands today in Roker Cliff Park originally stood on the Old South Pier; it was deactivated in 1903 and removed eighty years later.)[4]

 

With the growth of Sunderland as a port, it was decided to improve the approach to the river by creating an outer harbour, protected by a new pair of new breakwaters curving out into the North Sea from the shore on each side. The new piers were the brainchild of Henry Hay Wake, who at the age of 25 had been appointed Chief Engineer to the River Wear Commission (in succession to Thomas Meik) in 1868.[5] The foundation stone for the New North Pier (Roker Pier) was laid on 14 September 1885. Applauded at the time as a triumph of engineering, the 1,198 ft (365 m) pier is built of granite-faced concrete blocks, which were manoeuvred into place by a gas-powered crane nicknamed 'Goliath'.

 

The lighthouse at the pier head was completed in 1903. Its distinctive stripes are of naturally coloured red and white Aberdeen granite. When built it was said to be Britain's most powerful port lighthouse. It was lit by a Chance Brothers incandescent petroleum vapour mantle lamp set within a third-order rotating catadioptric optic (consisting of a single-panel Fresnel lens backed by a prismatic mirror); it displayed a single flash every five seconds.[6] In 1972 the light was automated and a set of sealed beam units replaced the old optic; these were themselves replaced with a dual-drive Pelangi PRL400 rotating pedestal and lamp in 2007.[7]

 

The opposite 'New South Pier' was begun at around the same time but never fully completed due to the start of the First World War; the twin lighthouse planned for its end was never built.

 

Roker Pier Lighthouse still functions today. Both pier and lighthouse have undergone significant refurbishment in recent years.[8] In 2012, as part of the restoration, a new flashingLED lamp array was installed, replacing the small Pelangi unit previously in use.[7] In 2018, following a comprehensive six-year process of refurbishment, the lighthouse was opened to the public for the first time; regular guided tours now take place, with access provided by way of the tunnel which runs the length of the pier.[9]

 

Demographics

The population of Roker is approximately 4,600. Since the redevelopment of former brownfield areas of heavy industry into affluent riverside housing areas, and the founding of the St Peters Campus of the University of Sunderland to the immediate south of the area, Roker has undergone rapid demographic change. The first of these two changes brought a large influx of professional and managerial workers into the areas now known as St Peters Riverside and North Haven. The arrival of the university campus has seen a large number of the larger houses in the vicinity of Roker Avenue being converted into flats and student residences. The pursuant studentification has brought a substantial Chinese community into the area for the first time, along with a variety of other nationalities

 

Along with the district of Monkwearmouth, Roker forms the St Peter's electoral ward on Sunderland City Council, which is a division of the Sunderland Central parliamentary seat. St Peter's ward was a safe Conservative ward in the 1980s, but became a battleground between the Conservatives and Labour in the 1990s and has remained as such ever since.[10] Of the wards three council seats, Labour currently hold two and the Conservatives hold one.

 

Trivia

On the site of Sunderland AFC's former stadium is a small housing estate, its street names all being references to the football club (Clockstand Close, Goalmouth Close, etc.). The streets in between Roker Baths Road and Roker Avenue are all named after members of William Ewart Gladstone's cabinet (Gladstone, Hartington, Forster, Bright, Stansfield, and so on).

In Parkersburg, West Virginia, on December 23rd, 2018, houses on the west side of Lynn Street, south of Wood Street. Both houses are said to have been erected circa 1900.

It was weird of Sears to think it needed a specially dedicated building just for making keys.

 

Ugh the humorless self-satisfaction of the key shop's 20th century customers. I hate to remember those people.
