1862 - #VictorHugo spent nearly 20 years planning and composing #LesMiserables. It received lukewarm reviews, but the book became a commercial success after its first printing in 1862. The excitement the #novel generated leading up to its publication was unprecedented. #Advertisements displayed around the city of #Paris introduced passersby to the characters struggling to start anew amid the 1832 June Rebellion in the City of Light. It was a bona fide #media frenzy well before the age of the Internet. 19th-century #French #book advertisements were amazing marvels posted throughout Paris, in stores, on poles and dopped into the seats of wealthy carriages. • • • • #His#Historyures #His#HistoryPhotos #HistoryInPictures #HistoryPics #Pics #Pictures #Pho#Photos #BlackAndWhite #Photo #History #HistoryPhoto #Historical #Facts #WorldHistory #WorldHistoryPictures #HistoryClass #OldPhoto #OldPicture #Interesting #APEuro #APUSH

This illustration shows a British RAF Hawker Tempest tipping one of the wings of the V-1 flying bomb to make it go out of its course. The V-1 flying bomb was a crude bomb (it glided not guided) which put England in terror during the last years of the war. 🔰Stick around for more info!🔰 - "It sounded like an old motorcycle over your head, you'd rather hear the sound faded away than all the sudden the sound just went off because that'd mean you were in serious danger." - V-1 flying bomb (Buzz Bomb) - As the tide turned against the Germans, Hitler decided to create and launch the first operational Cruise Missile to terrorize the enemy civilians. V-1 bomb was an unmanned aircraft. It would be launched from large ramp in Holland and would fly to the target area with the timer when the time had come it would cut its engine and fly straight to the ground and detonate 1,800 pounds explosives. After it cut its engine, the sound would go silent for 14 seconds and then it would hit the ground and create enormous explosion. Its first attack was on London, June 13, 1944, days after D-Day. It wasn't capable of hitting the target but it would hit somewhere not specific. RAF and USAAF had to redeploy anti-aircraft guns and their fastest fighter planes to take down these V-1 bombs but shooting it down would set off the bomb and take down both the bomb and shooter's aircraft so Allied pilots preferred "tipping" the V-1's wings by using their planes' wings which would send the bomb off its course or make it go down. This job was one of the most dangerous job for the Allied pilots in the last years of the war. Over 10,000 V-1s were launched with around 2,400 got through which killed over 22,000 people and huge numbers of Allied airmen.

My grandpa was in the Navy during WWII. My father-in-law was in the Air force during the Korean War. My father was in the Army during Vietnam. My brother-in-law is in the Marine Corps currently. Today's #FlatLay is some of the trinket items we have reflecting #WarTime or #Mil#Militaryory. {The bible was my grandpa's. It's the only item of his that I own. It's opened to 2Timothy2:15. Whomever gave him this bible wrote an inscription on the inside cover with this verse specifically; I ran a 10K a few years ago in support of the #Stop22 efforts. 22 Veterans commit suicide every day 💔; The US pin belonged to my father-in-law; the Ka-Bar, St. Michael medallion and civil war bullets were all gifted to my husband and of course the GI Joes belong to my son.} Pictured is my grandpa. I'll maybe pay my grandma a visit today and get a few stories out of her. Happy Friday, IG friends. #FlatLays #FlatLayFriday #History #Antiques #Military #WWII #Navy #AirForce #Army #MarineCorps #Vintage #USMilitary #NotForSale #Pray #Country #UnitedStates #Historical #USHistory #StoryCollector StoryTeller #Stories #Today

1870s - Did you know? #QueenVictoria, England's #monarch in the late 19th century was queen when #Europe was connected by underwater #telegraph cable to North America. She sent a letter of congratulations on the project to #President James #Buchanan, saying she hoped it would offer "an additional link between the nations whose friendship is founded on their common interest and reciprocal esteem." • • • • #His#Historyures #His#HistoryPhotos #HistoryInPictures #HistoryPics #Pics #Pictures #Pho#Photos #BlackAndWhite #Photo #History #HistoryPhoto #Historical #Facts #WorldHistory #WorldHistoryPictures #HistoryClass #OldPhoto #OldPicture #Interesting #APEuro #APUSH #England #GreatBritain #APWorld

"Luksor Tapınağı" Luksor - MISIR 🇪🇬 Karnak Amon Tapınağı yakınında bulunan ve görkemli eski Mısır mimarlığının Nil Nehri kıyısındaki en zarif örneklerinden biri olan tapınak, Yeni Krallık döneminin 9. firavunu III. Amenhotep tarafindan, Eski Mısır tanrılarının en büyüğü Amon-Ra adına MÖ XIV. yy.da inşa ettirilmiştir. Daha sonraları Tutankamon, II. Ramses, Büyük İskender, Roma ve Müslüman Araplar tarafindan çeşitli ekleme ve yapılarla günümüze kadar gelmiştir. 1885'de başlatılan araştırma, kazı ve restarasyon çalışmaları günümüzde de devam etmektedir. Tapınağa 24 m yükseklikteki pilondan girilir. Pilon cephesinde 4 tane oturan, ikisi ayakta duran büyük boy 6 adet Ramses heykeli bulunmaktaydı. Günümüzde tahtta oturur şeklindeki iki heykel, girişin sağında ve solunda yer alır. Pilon cephesi boydan boya II. Ramses'in zaferlerine ait tasvir ve yazılarla süslenmiştir. Pilon'dan sonra II. Ramses olarak bilinen büyük avluya girilir. Burası kapalı lotus başlıklı sütunlar ve aralarında yer alan Osiris heykelleri ile çevrilidir. Avlu girişinin sağında, orta krallıktan kalma orijinal ve küçük Teb üçlüsü tapınağı ile sol yanda ve yukarıda yerel bir şeyh tarafından 13. yüzyılda inşa ettirilen Abu al-Haggag Camii yer alır. Avludan sonra güney yönünde sapma yaparak koridor şeklinde uzanan açılmis papirüs başlıklı52m yüksekliğinde 14 devasa sütün çift sıra halinde ikinci büyük avluya ulaşır. III. Amenhotep'e ait olan bu sütunların üzerine Tel Amarna'daki Aten inancını terkederek Teb'e gelen ve Amon inancını kabul eden Tutankamon tarafından, bu dönüşümü kutlamak için süslemeler yaptırılmıştır. Buradan Hıpostil hole girilir. 32 sütunlu olan bu ilginç bölümden sonra Khonos, Mut ve Adak şapeli, yuvarlak kemerli, freksli, nişli, iki yanında kalsik roma sütun başlıklı girişi olan Roma kutsal mekanı, doğum odası, III. Amenhotep ve Büyük İskender'e ait dar ve karanlık kutsal mekanlar bulunur. Amon Ra Teknesi bu mekanda bir süre bekletilirdi. Karnak ve Luksor tapınaklarını birbirine bağlayan yolun sfenksli olan önemli bir bölümü pilon duvarı karşısında bulunmaktadır.

#kit#kitapyorumu Kitap akıcı ve güzeldi. Ama beni diğer okuduğum historicallar kadar etkilemedi. Bunun nedeni bana göre çiftimizin tanışır tanışmaz olayların çabuk gelişmesi gibi geldi. Hemen birbirinden kopamama durumuna geldiler. Kitabı özellikle güzel kılan beni okumaya teşvik eden kadın karakterlerimiz Susanna'ydı. Kendine güvenli, cesur ve şefkatli hallerini sevdim. Pısırık ve boş bir karakter değildi. Sevdikleri için düşünmeden kendini öne atan biri☺ Bram içinse ne düşünsem bilemiyorum. İyiydi ama öyle çok da kendine hayran bırakmadı. Kendisine kızdığım, anlam veremediğim yerler oldu. Kitap gerek akıcılığı, çeviri, diyalogları, karakterler aralarındaki aralarındaki diyaloglarıyla eğlenceliydi. İkisinin arasındaki çekim ve tutku hissediliyordu.(Özellikle Bram'ı bu konuda alkışlıyorum pek bir yenilikçiydi🙈😂😁) Kitapta yegane sevmediğim şeylerden biri Colin hareketleri, davranışları ve konuşma tarzı ile bana itici geldi. Kendisini sevemedim. Bundan sonraki kitap Colin ve Minevra'ymış. Ama ben Colin'i o kadar itici buldum ki okur muyum bilmem. (Minevra'yı da sevmedim gıcık geldi bana. Normalde bilgiç tarzda olan leydileri çok severim ama ısınamadım😕)Bram'ın evcil kuzusu "Akşam Yemeği" ne bayıldım😁İsmini düşündükçe gülümsüyorum.☺ Kitap ne öyle çok iyiydi ne de kötü, ortaydı. Yine de tavsiye ederim. Sırf güçlü leydimiz Susanna için okunur. ☺❤ #aşkcephesi #tessadore #pegasusyayınları #kitapyorum #kitapsever #kitapkurdu #kitapsevgisi #kitapaşkı #kitaplariyikivar #historical #roman #kitapmüptelası #kitapveçiçek #book #booklove #bookshelf #bookmark #bookrewiev #booklife #instabook #mybook

I use this book long long time as a historical document material. It shows many pictures of samurai era👍. 長年愛用している、歴史物用資料の一冊です。100年前って書いてますが、もう130年くらい以前の日本の写真集ですw。これがあるから歴史物描いてもいいなあって思ったんですよね〜。 #com#comicart/a> #comicart #history #historical #book #material #samurai #pictures #edo #江戸時代

It was actually after seeing Beauty and the Beast that I ever thought about outerwear in the 18th century. So today for #outside on #geo#georgianary, here is a jacket held at the Nordic Museum dated 1760-90. I also want to research capes a bit more as I want an excuse to make a cape! A jacket is also on my list of need to sew. — #costume #costumery #historical #historicalcostume #historicalfashion #fashion #18thcentury #georgian #georgianera #beautyandthebeast #disney

Κτήριο στην οδο ΖΑΛΟΚΩΣΤΑ 7, έργο του πολιτικού μηχανικού Αδριανού Λαζαρίμου , κατασκευάστηκε το 1938 και θεωρείται ένα από τα άριστα διατηρημένα δείγματα του μοντερνισμού στην πρωτεύουσα. Ξεχωρίζει από τα γύρω κτίρια του πεζόδρομου για τις χαρακτηριστικές προεξοχές στην πρόσοψη, τα γνωστότερα ως έρκερ, τις μαρμάρινες επενδύσεις στις εσωτερικές σκάλες, κυρίως όμως για την αριστοτεχνική χρήση του μετάλλου και του ξύλου στη διακόσμηση, που διατηρούνται σε ιδιαίτερα καλή κατάσταση. Συνδέεται με τη νεότερη ιστορία της Ελλάδας, καθώς στη διάρκεια της γερμανικής κατοχής είχε επιταχθεί. Τα διαμερίσματα των ορόφων είχαν μετατραπεί σε κατοικίες για αξιωματούχους. Το ισόγειο, και κυρίως το υπόγειο, είχαν χρησιμοποιηθεί ως τόπος ανακρίσεων και βασανιστηρίων, σε συνδυασμό με το γειτονικό κολαστήριο της οδού Μέρλιν, το οποίο δυστυχώς δεν διασώθηκε. Στο υπόγειο υπάρχει στοά, που όμως είναι σφραγισμένη. Λέγεται πως αποτελεί μέρος πλέγματος διαδρόμων που διατρέχει το κέντρο της Αθήνας και οδηγεί σε σημαντικά κτίρια. Κάποιοι, μάλιστα, υποστηρίζουν ότι είχε ενταχθεί στο σχέδιο του ΕΑΜ για ανατίναξη του γειτονικού κτιρίου του υπουργείου Εξωτερικών κατά την επίσκεψη του Τσόρτσιλ λίγο πριν από τα Δεκεμβριανά του 1944. Έτσι, το κτήριο για το οποίο ο αείμνηστος Π. Μυλωνάς είχε πει ότι είναι ωραίο, «γιατί εκφράζει τον χαρακτήρα μιας εποχής, ενός τρόπου ζωής ανθρωπινότερου», διαφυλάσσεται και για τις επόμενες γενιές.

San Sebastiano church, Venice. My fave church during our trip, by far. It's a diamond.💎Dating from the 14th century. The painter Paul Veronese entirely decorated it : paintings and frescoes.🎨He worked 15 years on them 😱, an titan body of work that reminds the time Michelangelo spent on the Chapelle Sixtine.🌪Veronese is buried in the church and it's only justice cause this work is probably his masterpiece.💥
