Siegfried's mom - Emma~ woohoo Emma is described to be a loving mother, who always did what was best for her son. She usually told him stories, taught him simple things such as how to do simple math, get dressed by himself and so on. Emma tried to raise her son on her own (the father was unknown??) but unfortunately, she passed away due to a serious illness when Siegfried was 5-year-old (1922). [If you noticed in the 2nd picture, Siegfried was wearing his mom shirt ;w; His family was so poor at that time] #ww1oc #originacharacter #wwioc #singlemom #oc #sketch #mommy #1920s #postwar
Never, ever, ever, ever forget. Left out the horrifying pictures since there is no proper age limit on Instagram to my knowledge. But this is a 17-year period of Vietnam which should be thought to every, single, one. After being in this museum I find it even more astonishing how genuinly KIND & SWEET the Vietnamese people have been to us the last month travelling around. #respectforall #warremnantsmuseum #postwar #neverforget
Federico Fellini - I Vitelloni (1953) Fellini reste sur le style chaleureux et léger de "Lo sceicco bianco" en plus intéressant. L'éclairage mutuel des deux parties est plaisant : là où dans la première partie triomphe le statisme et le cloisonnement (famille qui ne bouge pas, Fausto qui doit rester dans son magasin de bibelots), triomphe la fuite dans la seconde partie (la compagne de Fausto puis Moraldo). La réminiscence avec ce plan ultra-subjectif à la fin marche redoutablement bien. La perspective autobiographique est assez évidente : le récit est transposé dans la ville natale de Fellini. #film #cinema #cinephile #movie #instamovie #federico #fellini #i #vitelloni #50s #1953 #blackandwhite #italia #autobiography #funny #postwar #warm

Camden Town Hall Extension: Camden Arch Dept, 1977. Just occasionally, every so often, instead of being knocked down, brutalist beauties get a second lease of life. Pevsner had it as “coarse”. Sometimes, one has to disagree with Pevsner. It’s great. I’ve been waiting an age for it to emerge from its transformation cocoon. It’s almost there: a nice shiny new hotel with a kicking concrete exterior and natty new crown (which no doubt the purists will hate). ©en #brutalist #brutalism #modernarchitecture #modernism #londonarchitecture #urbandesign #building #architecture #archilovers #archiporn #lookup #architecture_hunter #arquitectura #london #architektur #betonbrut #towerblock #concretelover #concrete #urbanplanning #regeneration #highrise #midcentury #postwar #camden #hotel #hoteldesign #londonhotel #brutal_architecture 19012

Would love to learn more about this interesting plate if you might have some info... "Made in Occupied Japan," so 1945-1952. Is that a Virgin Mary figure? 😅 . . . #japaneseantique #gilded #postwar #occupiedjapan #madeinoccupiedjapan #showa
If You Leave Me by Crystal Hana Kim. Set in post-war South Korea in the 1950s and 60s, we follow a family as they deal with the burdens of decisions that are either made or forced upon them in a time of social flux. People were caught between tradition and new, Western ways: arranged marriage and matchmakers or love marriage; traditional clothes or not; women going to university or work, or staying home? The characters are all stuck in the midst of these changes, and that was for me one of the most compelling parts of the story. I had some reader's guilt as I read this as I was questioning if I only enjoyed it because it reminded me of Min Jin Lee's Pachinko, a top read of mine last year. Has anyone had that feeling before? Should we feel guilty? I think when it came down to it, the books shared features that perhaps I simply enjoy, such as the pace, setting and the conflicts of that characters. Thanks to my cousins for letting me borrow their bath and indulge in one of my favourite pastimes, reading in a cool bath on a hot day. 🛁📚😌☀️
The last A-series tank developed was A45. A45 was originally designed as an Infantry Tank, but was later turned into a Universal Tank. This was also one of the first tanks to be given the new FV series designation becoming FV200 series with the A45 being FV201/221. The A45 soon got the name Caernarvon. Their was 2 variants Caernarvon Mk.I and Caernarvon Mk.II, Caernarvon Mk.I used the turret of Centurion Mk.II armed with a 76mm QF 17-pounder Caernarvon Mk.II used the Centurion Mk.III turret armed with the 84mm QF 20-pounder. Though with the success of the A41 Centurion their was no need for another Universal tank and the Caernarvon were mainly used for prototype and testing work until 1955 when the FV215 Conqueror heavy tank was created. . . . . #tank #tanks #britain #british #britishtank #uk #postwar #coldwar
Towards the later ends of WWII, Britain tried to create the Universal tank they so desperately wanted. This design was A41. A41 was similar to the earlier A34 Comet though it had an extra road wheel, Horstmann suspension was used at its planned 40 ton weight would put too much strain on the original Christie suspension. The size was mostly made to mount the new turret which could hold the 76mm QF-17 pounder. Early A41 designs had either a 20mm Polsten or BESA mg. in co-axial mount and a few switching the 17-pounder with the 77mm HV gun. These designs became the Centurion Mk.I, and at the time of their introduction they were one of the most powerful tanks at the time with only the American M26 and the heavier tanks of the German and Soviet tanks being comparable. Soon after a modified design changed the turret to put the co-axial mg. closer to the main gun, the armament was still the 17-pounder. Soon after developments into cannons resulted in the 84mm QF 20-pounder, a superb AT gun that replaced the 17-pounder in tanks. The next Centurion was the one of the most important variants made, the Centurion Mk.III which mounted the aforementioned 20-pounder cannon and had one of the first automated stabilization system allowing it to be relatively accurate while on the move this is what made the Centurion one of the most powerful tanks in the world. The Mk.III became the mainstay variant for awhile being used by the British until development of the Centurion Mk.V, Mk.IV was a planned close support version with a howitzer but it never materialized. The Mk.V at first really didn't introduce much the only major difference was the use of the 20-pounder B which added a fume extractor, but the big thing that the Mk.V introduced was the new 105mm L7 cannon which became the common gun among NATO tanks, NATO had formed soon after WWII. Though despite the Mk.V introducing the 105mm L7 further Centurions would mount the 20-pounder along with L7. The Mk.VI didn't introduce much besides some infrared equipment, slight armor upgrades. Mk.VII introduced a extra internal fuel tank which helped remedy the Centurions lack luster combat range...
Norma Redpath working in her studio. Redpath was an award winning Australian mid-century sculptor who enjoyed great success throughout the 20th Century. Her work can be found in many public collections and she was a member of the ‘Group of Four’ which later became the ‘Centre 5’ group. It was great to see some of Redpath’s work on display @ngvmelbourne with works by #lentonparr #ingeking and #clementmeadmore Why not drop in and take a look this weekend. #normaredpath #sculptor #sculpture #groupoffour #centre5 #modernistersister #Australianmodern #midcentury #Modernist #australiandesign #modernism #mcm #midcenturymodern #instagood #instastyle #modernism #postwar #modernistmelbourne #modernistinterior #1950sarchitecture #midcenturydesign #ausmodern
Day 17 of #authorschallenge2019 - Favourite book and why... 📖🤔📖🤔📖 This was such a hard prompt, but decided on two of my favourites. 📖❤️📖❤️📖 Those Who Save Us by @jenna_blum has to be one of the best books I've read in years. It was a story that played on all my emotions and had me obsessed with the characters. I remember sneaking a few pages to read in between calls at work or losing track of time, lost in the author's words. 📖💙📖💙📖 The second book is by Canadian author, Diana Douglas, titled Somewhere Picking Dandelions. This is the first book that I experienced two things. First, when I was finished it, I had my first real "book hangover". I honestly couldn't pick up another, needing a good week or two to get over this one and say goodbye to the characters. Second, this is the first book I had a MAJOR crush on a character. I told Diana if there was a way for me to somehow travel into her book and make Matthew fall in love with me, I would...

Ed van der Elsken - Dam, Amsterdam, 1975 (Ed van der Elsken's work is highly subjective, portraying striking individuals he encountered on his travels, documenting his own life and that of his surrounding. His approach was confrontational, embracing the bright as well as the darker sides of human life. The unconventional technique and the gritty snapshot-like quality of his work have been of great importance in the development of contemporary photography. "Ed was a great believer in the power of the individual... One of the reasons why he flourished in Amsterdam, was that so many strong characters lived there: He made it his job to locate and photograph them... Above all you can sense his energy and determination to document the city he loved do much..."

This photo was taken on Commercial Road. The building itself is pretty much the same however, the scale of the new buildings in the background shows how different London is now. I discovered a photobook of post-war East London taken by #DavidGranick between1960—1980. I’ve gone back to several of these locations & replicated his shots for the 21st century. The photobook is ‘THE EAST END IN COLOUR 1960-1980’ by @hoxtonminipress #London #ldn #east #eastlondon #shoreditch #instax #polariod #2019 #photography #vintage #postwar #buildings #commerical #oldst #oldstreet @towerhamletsarchive
I seem to remember bickering, being cold in winter in a draughty old house and always in my dressing gown or a school uniform. Nice to be reminded of sunny days and wearing espadrilles just brought back from a sailing trip to France - Kent 1953.

'those days, as I remember them now, were the last in which the dying embers of our happiness still glowed...' . Published in 1947, The Setting Sun by Japanese author Osamu Dazai tells the tale of the beautifully tragic downfall of a minor aristocratic family in early postwar Japan- a time of social and moral upheaval in Japanese society. . There is really very little action in the novel, but I think that works to make the events that much more realistic. Rather, the focus is on the main character Kazuko and her mother's move from their old Tokyo mansion to a cottage in the country (after becoming impoverished from the war), and the events that transpire after the return of her brother who has been missing since the war. The novel as a whole serves as an allegory of the decline of the traditional Japanese aristocracy, and the lives of ordinary Japanese people in the postwar period. . One of my favourite aspects of this book is Dazai's writing- so simple, but so poignant and insightful. His sensitive portrayals and detailed descriptions of the characters' emotions are just so perceptive and relatable. . Another interesting aspect of Dazai's writing is his alternating narrative style. Kazuko, being unmistakably Japanese, rarely confides her inner emotions and thoughts to her family members. In fact, Kazuko, her mother and her brother live almost without intimate communication with each other. Because of this, Dazai uses a variety of flashback techniques (letters, a diary and a will) in between the traditional narrative, to bring his characters vividly to life. . Everything about this book just exudes an air of refined elegance and beauty- from the prose, to the chapter titles, layout, cover... Probably the most beautiful novel I've ever read- an absolute masterpiece, and definitely a new favourite! . I'd highly recommend this novel to anyone interested in Japanese society (esp in postwar Japan), or to anyone that wants to read an incredibly powerful and moving piece of 20th C literature! . 5/5 ❤

Taipei Dangdai 2019 は 1/20(日)まで開催しております! F05ブースにて、皆様のご来場を心よりお待ち申し上げます。 時間: 1/18(金) 12am – 8pm 1/19(土) 12am – 7pm 1/20(日) 12am – 5pm 会場:台北、南港展覧館 出品作家: 三島喜美代、木下佳通代、中辻悦子 中山明日香、桐月沙樹 弊画廊は戦後日本を代表する 3 人の女性作家、 三島喜美代、木下佳通代、中辻悦子をご紹介いたします。 戦後日本では多くの美術運動が権威からの解放を訴えた一方、女性作家はなお制度的不平等や社会的偏見に立ち向かわねばなりませんでした。今回ご紹介する三人は、そうした困難にもかかわらず、確固たる意志と自覚を持ち、主要な美術動向に属することなく独力で自身の作風を築きあげました。 若い世代と異なり必ずしも「女性性」を強調することのなかった当時の作家たちですが、 「女性である」という条件はその表現手法に少なからず影響を与えてもきました。 本アートフェアでは、「女性」という性を前面に打ち出す作風で知られる 2 名の気鋭若手女性作家、中山明日香、桐月沙樹を対置し、歴史的背景や作風の変化を比較することで、戦後から現代にいたるまで、女性作家たちがどのように自らのアイデンティティに向き合ってきたかを考察いたします。 DANGDAI ART & Ideas Booth F05 For the first Taipei Dangdai, we present three leading Japanese female artists in the post-warera: Kimiyo MISHIMA, Kazuyo KINOSHITA, and Etsuko NAKATSUJI. In postwar Japan, where numerous art movement stated freedom from authority, female Artists still have had to get over many institutional inequality and social prejudices. Despite such difficulty, these women formed their characteristics with firm resolution and awareness beyond any dominant movement. Although these artists do not necessarily emphasize “femininity” unlike younger generations, the condition as women at that time inevitably affected their ways of expression. We compare their historical backgrounds and changes in style by juxtaposing young female artists: Asuka NAKAYAMA and Saki KIRIDUKI, who are known for their unique styles to cast eyes upon gender typicality. Examining how women artists have dealt with their identity throughout postwar era, this exhibition will keenly highlight the struggle and endeavor of women in Japanese art history. Date Fri. 18 to Sun.20 , January 2019 Friday, Jan 18 12am – 8pm Saturday,Jan 19 12am – 7pm Sunday, Jan 20 12am – 5pm Venue: Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center No. 1, Jingmao 2nd Road, Nangang District, Taipei City Image:Installation view of booth F05 at TAIPEI DANGDAI ART & Ideas 2019 #japaneseartist #comtemporaryart #postwar #femaleartist #galleryyamakifineart #art #gallery #kobe #japan #artfair #taipei #taiwan #戦後日本美術 #美術 #現代美術 #現代アート #ギャラリー #神戸 #三島喜美代 #木下佳通代 #中辻悦子 #中山明日香 #桐月沙樹 #台北當代 #台北 #台湾 #アートフェア #ギャラリーヤマキファインアート

I mentioned before that one of the Nuffield AT tanks, AT-16, was approved for production as the A39. A39 was meant as an extremely heavy breakthrough vehicle, mostly designed to smash through the supposedly heavily defended Siegfried Line. A39 was up to the job with over 229mm of armor and a new powerful 94mm QF 32-pounder gun the most premiere AT gun in Britain and successor to the 76mm QF 17-pounder. A39 was given the nickname Tortoise as it was extremely slow at only a top speed of 12mph/19kmh but it had enough armor to reliably block any shell the Germans could throw at it. The original design of Tortoise had the vehicle at 72 tons but once built into steel it went up to 79 tons and was the heaviest armored vehicle built by Britain during WWII. Though being built in WWII is a bit generous of a term Tortoise missed the war with the first being built in 1945 and production continued till 1947. A total of 6 of these massive vehicles were built with most being retained in Britain though one saw service with the BAOR, British Army of the Rhine, during postwar times. Though the British came to same conclusion most other countries came to when designing huge super-heavy tanks, they don't work. The Tortoise required 2 trucks to pull it on a trailer, it was difficult to ship by rail, it didn't fit on the combat bridges used by Britain and it was found to be very sluggish due to its almost 80 ton weight and small 600hp engine. Ultimately the Tortoise was pulled from service and were mostly scrapped or used as targets in ranges. Out of the 6 produced 3 survive and only 1 is in good condition. . . . . #tank #tanks #britain #british #britishtank #uk #ww2 #ww2tank #ww2tanks #postwar #selfpropelledgun
