World famous Queen Victoria graces the top of this famous fountain made by the potters Doulton. To the back Templeton's Carpet Factory.

My first attempt at firework photography, and what better to try it out tonight at Liverpool Pier Head, even better the Cunard ship Queen Victoria is on a 2 day visit, was not sure about this image when i first saw it, its like two separate pictures, but this was due to the severe brightness of the fireworks hence just a couple of seconds exposure was needed.

The Doulton Fountain, given to Glasgow as part of the International Exhibition of 1888, was moved to the Green in 1890.[1] Designed by architect Arthur E. Pearce, the 46 ft tall fountain was built by the Royal Doulton company to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.. It features a 70-foot-wide (21 m) basin, with a slightly larger than life-size statue of Queen Victoria, surrounded by four life-size statues of water-carriers representing Australasia, Canada, India and South Africa. A lightning strike in 1891 destroyed the statue of Victoria, and rather than let the city replace the statue with an urn, Doulton paid for a second hand-made statue to be produced. In the 1960s the fountain was allowed to fall into a state of disrepair with the water supply being turned off. However, in 2002 a £2 million restoration programme was started that restored the fountain to its original condition. As of 2004, the fountain has been placed in a new location, in front of the People's Palace. It is category A listed.

I love this darling house and feel it should be in a storybook. I don't know any history on it, except that, like most of the old houses here in downtown Guelph, it has been lovingly maintained. Guelph was established in 1827, with a population of 1,000. Ten years later, Queen Victoria came to the throne. By the end of her reign in 1901, Guelph was a city of 12,000. Its population is now 125,000. The core streets in city centre are largely names from Ireland, England and Scotland.

A visit to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe was on the last part of the trip to South Africa. This image was taken on a very sunny day, but the mist rising from the falls created a number of rainbows. I have more shots of the falls in my South Africa, Zimbabwe album. The water falls were a little sparse when we were there. Other parts of the year the falls are really spectacular.

 

Wikipedia -

 

Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya (Tokaleya Tonga: the Smoke that Thunders), is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

 

David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855 from what is now known as Livingstone Island, one of two land masses in the middle of the river, immediately upstream from the falls on the Zambian side. Livingstone named his discovery in honour of Queen Victoria, but the indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya—"the smoke that thunders"—continues in common usage as well. The nearby national park in Zambia, for example, is named Mosi-oa-Tunya, whereas the national park and town on the Zimbabwean shore are both named Victoria Falls. The World Heritage List officially recognizes both names.

 

While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls. In height and width Victoria Falls is rivalled only by Argentina and Brazil's Iguazu Falls.

Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, UK, was Queen Victorias holiday home.

Happy Miniature Sunday!

It's getting more and more difficult to find suitable subjects for these miniatures - hope you think this one works.

I love to see my contacts there!

No fewer than three different tutorials on our first page!

The Queen Victoria Building (or QVB), is a late nineteenth-century building designed by the architect George McRae in the central business district of Sydney, Australia.The building consists of four main shopping floors. The top three levels have large openings (protected by decorative cast-iron railings) that allow natural light from the ceiling to illuminate the lower floors.

Someone commented that this looks like a guitar fretboard. It is, of course, a sunset from the stern of a liner.

 

In Explore 18th January - many thanks

 

See where this picture was taken. [?]

I just wanted to build a clinker brick wall.

 

In my opinion the outcome of the wall looks quite good and so I decided to build a little vignette to present the finished wall.

 

The bird's nest was inspired by [https://www.flickr.com/photos/60604487@N03/]'s LEGO creation "White White West".

Queen Victoria came to stay. And let off some fireworks on her departure.

_ACZ9168 - Well after a great Bank Holiday Saturday and Sunday rain on Monday and Tuesday wanted to brighten the middle of the week up a little.

Something a little different to those calm sunsets you get a little spray / splash against the sea wall on Ryde esplanade, looking towards east Cowes and Osbourne House home of Queen Victoria.

Sunlight bounced off the water surface at the base of the fountain produced an ethereal glow to the underside of its centre column.

 

This art-nouveau style fountain was built in 1897 to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee celebration of Queen Victoria's reign in the British empire. Victoria was the great-great grandmother of the present Queen Elizabeth.

Osborne House is a former royal residence in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom. The house was built between 1845 and 1851 for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat. Prince Albert designed the house himself in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo. The builder was Thomas Cubitt, the London architect and builder whose company built the main façade of Buckingham Palace for the royal couple in 1847. An earlier smaller house on the site was demolished to make way for a new and far larger house, though the original entrance portico survives as the main gateway to the walled garden.

 

Queen Victoria died at Osborne House in January 1901. Following her death, the house became surplus to royal requirements and was given to the state, with a few rooms being retained as a private museum to Queen Victoria. From 1903 until 1921 it was used as a junior officer training college for the Royal Navy, known as the Royal Naval College, Osborne. In 1998 training were consolidated at the Britannia Royal Naval College, now at Dartmouth. Osborne House is open to the public for tours.

St George's Church, West End, Esher, Surrey, England.

Nicknamed "The Little Iron Church"

The land was donated by Queen Victoria so it could be built.

The church celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2004, though it originally came in kit form and was intended to last less than seven years.

Despite the relentless energy emanating from Charing Cross on a rainy night, the south-west side of Admiralty Arch feels eerily peaceful.

 

Planning permission was recently granted by Westminster for the Grade I-listed building to be turned into a luxury hotel, but after its commission by King Edward VII in the early 1900s in memory of Queen Victoria, Admiralty Arch was occupied by the leaders of the Royal Navy, and later by the Cabinet Office.

This is a test to see if flickr can work properly for me. It has been going ok for the past four hours or so (I think and hope) and if this one can perform then normal service will be resumed this evening!!

They've always struck me as rather haughty birds, these magnificent Victoria Crowned Pigeons, named after her Imperial Majesty Queen Victoria! 'Her Most Gracious Majesty', as Louis Fraser (1819/1820-c.1866), called her in his presentation of this new exotic bird from New Guinea to his listeners at the meeting of the Zoological Society of London on August 27, 1844, though he used Lophyrus as the genus name.

But the Brits weren't the only ones enthusing over Our Bird in 1844. New Guinea then, of course, fell under Dutch colonial jursidiction. Besides waging colonial war and wielding administrative and economic power, the Dutch were also inveterate naturalists and many an expedition was mounted to the nooks and crannies of the vast East Indian archipelago. Indeed, they gladly welcomed any explorer who might be interested (among them Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) of The Malay Archipelago and the famous Wallace Line; in fact, Wallace mentions our bird and collected it for his patrons). In the early 1840s the governor of the Moluccan Islands, François Vincent Henri Antoine de Stuers (1792-1881), collected this Pigeon and also in 1844 presented it to the Rijksmuseum voor Natuurlijke Historie at Leiden. There it was named by Coenraad Jacob Temminck (1778-1858) for that formidable governor and soldier and much more: Columba steursii. Only later was the genus name 'Goura' proposed for this crowned pigeon, apparently after a native name. Goura steursii and Goura victoria are used today as synonyms; but I'd guess they're more taken with the latter.

It bears the initials of Queen Victoria, who was on the throne at the time and is still in use after 161 years!

The station was opened in 1860 by the Worcester & Hereford Railway; in 1862 the current buildings were completed in 1862 by the architect Edmund Wallace Elmslie. The line was eventually taken over by the Great Western Railway.

 

The Eagle Range & Foundry Company was registered in 1894; in 1900 it was acquired by John Wright & Co, becoming John Wright & Eagle Range.

Spotted this reflection on a pool of water along Church Street after the rain during the Canon PhotoMarathon. My focus (at infinity) was on the subject and not the road which was very close to me, so the road appears as blurred.
