The Battle of Bunker Hill - June 17, 1775 ▪️ “The next day, the British army under General William Howe, supported by Royal Navy warships, attacked the colonial defenses. The British troops moved up Breeds Hill in perfect battle formations. One of the commanders of the improvised garrison, William Prescott, allegedly encouraged his men “not fire until you see the whites of their eyes.” - American Battlefield Trust ▪️ Image - ▪️ #history #historic #war #warfare #battle #warhistory #military #militaryhistory #whitesoftheireyes #charlestownma #1775 #americanhistory #britishhistory #usa #bunkerhill #revolutionarywar #foundingfather #usarmy #royalnavy #britishempire #americanrevolution #victory #bostonma
Dinner at Isola Bella, Lago Maggiore, Italy For this dinner under structure we decided to take inspiration from the rotunda of the palace to reconstruct a dining room. Set up a decor incorporating the great classics of the XVIII, draperies, Murano chandeliers, torch holders and mirrors of gilded wood and crystal girandoles for the environmental decor. Tables covered with "blue cloud" satin, porcelain plates with nasturtiums, the embroidered towels of the Peacock symbol of the Island and Rocaille Louis XV candelabra gave the "tone". The bouquets of Muscaris, Sweet Pea, Clematis, Hydrangeas and Oxypetalum complemented the table setting in a refined manner. #ArtdelaTable #isolabella #island #lagomaggiore #italia #italy #igersitalia #luxuryevents #wanderlust #travelgram #art #antique #photography #luxuryevents #tablesetting #europa #europe #port #lake #lakeside #pantone #eventplanning #porcelain #flowers #view #historic #historical #ancient
The Royal Exchange in London (front right) was founded in the 16th century by the merchant Thomas Gresham on the suggestion of his factor Richard Clough to act as a centre of commerce for the City of London. To the front left is the Bank of England The Bank of England, is the central bank of the United Kingdom and the model on which most modern central banks have been based. Established in 1694! To the rear is 100 Bishopsgate THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK. When finished will be site will be a 40-storey tower comprising five floors of 44,000 sq ft (4,100 m2) each and 32 office floors of between 19,000–25,000 sq ft (1,800–2,300 m2). The old and the new will never cease to amaze me. I love the contrast and whilst progress is important so is maintaining the history for generations to come. . . . . . . #unitedkingdom #england #mayfair #timeoutlondon #londonlife #london_enthusiast #realestate #propertyfinder #propertymarket #instaproperty #properties #historic #historygram #historical #archaeologist #historicplaces #historicalsite #instaoffice #officedesk #workplacedesign #officespace #officedesign #modernoffice #stpauls #theshardlondon #westminsterabbey #thegherkin #stpaulcathedral #property

Janis Joplin with her psychedelic Porsche, 1968⠀ ⠀ Janis Lyn Joplin, born January 19, 1943, was an American rock, soul, and blues singer-songwriter, and one of the most successful and widely known female rock stars of her era. ⠀ ⠀ In 1967, Joplin rose to fame following an appearance at Monterey Pop Festival, where she was the lead singer of the then little-known San Francisco psychedelic rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. ⠀ ⠀ After releasing two albums with the band, she left Big Brother to continue as a solo artist. After releasing three albums, she died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27. ⠀ ⠀ A fourth album, Pearl, was released in January 1971, just over three months after her death. It reached number one on the Billboard charts.⠀ ⠀ #history #historyhunters #historypics #historytime #historygram #historyiscool #historyphotographed #historycity #historyandpics #historypassion #instahistory #historic #historical #historicalsnapshots #americanupbeat #photo #photograph #pictureoftheday #vintage #vintagephoto #janisjoplin #psychedelic #rock #blues

While at the Studebaker Mansion we noticed some other historic homes in the area, some abandoned. We decided to look around. #paranormalangels #Indiana #southbend #historic #historichome #doors #fireescape #doorknobs #explore #roadtrip

It's all a distraction. I should be painting, but looking forward to seeing THE chandelier in this space.
Hard to see it now but this arts and crafts home would be gorgeous with the right restoration. . . . #townhousetherapy #townhouse #brownstone #renovation #realestate #nyc #restoration #brooklynbrownstones #historic townhouses#fixerupper #architecture #nyc architecture#Manhattan #streetart #interiordesign #interiors #oldhouse #Bedford Stuyvesant#ClintonHill #FortGreene

The B’Nai Temple sits at the corner of Cotton and Common downtown. The architect was Shreveport-native Edward F. Neild. Neild’s portfolio includes Byrd High School, the Louisiana State Museum, the Scottish Rites Temple, the Cathanlean Temple, and more. When President Truman toured Shreveport, he was so impressed with his work, particularly the Caddo Courthouse, that Truman contacted him to design the courthouse in his own Jackson County, MS. Neild was a consulting architect on the rehabilitation of the White House and also the lead architect of the Truman Presidential Library. Pretty impressive for a Shreveport boy! Let’s put Shreveport back on the map!! • • • • • •#downtownrevitalization #downtownshreveport #shreveport #shreveportbossier #highlandneighborhood #architecture #history #louisiana #northlouisiana #explore #travel #historic #exploreyourcity #SBFunSide #travelyourcity #sbc

Looking towards the Goolwa Wharf and Bridge.
This is my Grandma Calixta’s house where I used to spend a lot of time with my Grandma, my Mom and my siblings. The house is no longer owned by our family. This is in Cartagena’s old, historic town. My grandma used to stay in touch with everyone through this window. The inside of the home, as most of the homes there, has an inside courtyard with a well, following the Spanish home architecture from the colonial period. I’m grateful for all the beautiful memories built here. - - Spanish La casa de nuestra abuela Calixta, ubicada en el centro amurallado de Cartagena de indias. Aquí pasamos momentos inolvidables y mucho tiempo con mi mamá y mis hermanos. Ya la casa no pertenece a la familia. La abuela a través de esta ventana se mantenía al tanto de todo lo que pasaba en El Barrio. La casa tiene un jardín interno con un pozo al estilo de la arquitectura colonial Española. Estoy infinitamente agradecida por las Bellas memorias vividas aquí. - - - @rosarioyacaman @luciayacaman @leylayacamanv @yacaman1274 - - #tbt #oldtown #grandmashouse #grandma #memories #homes #cartagena #cartagenadeindias #family #familytime #grateful #thankful #momlife #familylife #architecture #historic #oldtownhome
