The pleasure of ruins: all that remains of Countess Wear paper mill (probably early C19, listed Grade two). A mill has been on the site since circa 1638 and by the mid-1800s was producing newsprint for the Times of India and paper for £5 notes. Nice English bond brickwork. Would love to have a gander inside but entrance is prohibited. I’ll have to sneak in.

A lovely colour postcard of Princess Road, one of my favourites❤. In the centre is, of course, the Prince Albert pub, sadly no longer in use today...If anyone has any news on whether it will re-open again, please get in touch! 
According to the 1911 census the 'licensed victualler', or pub landlord was Walter Everett, and his wife Edith was 'assisting in the business'. The children were too small to be of any use, Kitty and Ivy were only 4 and 2 respectively!

A rustic cottage on the Killerton estate painted in signature yellow ochre. At Killerton they make their own paint using a historic technique dating back to the Roman times. Raw lime is mixed with other ingredients, such as fats, chalk and ochre found on the estate. The ochre gives all of the estate buildings their distinctive mustard colour.

home to the ulster presbyterian cowboy who lit up the lives of schoolboys all over the world with his romantic tales of adventures in exotic lands from tibet to texas- captain thomas mayne reid.
he was, in terms of sales and reach, the most successful irish author of the 19th century. his breathless tales of adventure (and botany) amongst the plains indians of north america or the lamas of kathmandu were translated into scores of languages and inspired everybody from sir arthur conan doyle and vladimir nabokov to nobel laureate czeslaw milosz and us president teddy roosevelt.
in his time, he was considered a serious rival to jules verne. edgar allan poe sang his praises. the two met in philadelphia and became great drinking buddies.
he fought, bravely, for the young us nation, built a mexican hacienda in suburban london and married well, before dying of "severe melancholia", broke and forgotten. but his fame would live on for generations of schoolboys, including a young vladimir nabokov, who, at 11 years of age, translated his best known novel "the headless horseman" from english prose into french alexandrines (a type of poetic metre favoured for romantic epics).
born the son of a presbyterian minister in ulster in 1818, he studied first for the church and then worked as a schoolteacher in his native land before becoming restless and heading for the united states in 1840.
when war broke out with mexico in 1846, he was commissioned as a lieutenant in the us army, fought at vera cruz and was badly wounded while leading the charge at the battle of chapultepec. •

Miami Marine Stadium. Built in 1963 as the first stadium for powerboat racing in the US. Many major races were run here with the last being in 1990. More interestingly, they had many concerts here over the years, where the band would play on a stage built on a barge, and hundreds of private boaters would anchor nearby to enjoy the music. Ray Charles was the last musician to play here (1990), but over the years the Stadium hosted everyone from Queen (1976) to The Beach Boys (1989) to Kenny Rogers (87 & 88) to Jimmy Buffet (85 & 87) to The Doobie Brothers. It was finally named to the National Registry of Historic Places this year, and there is an ongoing effort to fix the damaged structure and put it back into use.

Sometime in the late 70s my partners and I at Mansion Glass Studios got our biggest commission to date designing and fabricating these leaded glass transoms for a bank. We bid on the architectural drawings turned out the actual was twice the size. Not sure we broke even. Young and hungry. They survived the earthquake and years of southern exposure weather they still look like new. Stood the test of time. That’s the payoff #architecture #architecturalglass #stainedglass #classicalglass #olympia #mansionglassolympia #rippleglass #vintageglass #leavingamark #locallegacy #localhistory #olympiaarchitecture

On September 20, 2008, the new North Vancouver City Library opened as part of a redeveloped Civic Centre that soon includes a revitalized City Hall. The building was designed to meet the vision of the North Vancouver City Council as an anchor for a new urban precinct in the heart of the city: a contemporary, sustainable and accessible facility. The next cultural facility to come to #NorthVancouver will be a new @NorthVanMuseum in #LowerLonsdale in 2020.

September 12 marked the 77th anniversary of the remarkable 7-minute blackout demonstration held in Port Washington in 1941. The carefully planned, dramatic and realistic community bombing-defense spectacle included plunging the entire town into total darkness (no automobiles could travel without covered headlights), air raid sirens, fake fires and human “bombing victims” who were carted off and “treated” by members of the Red Cross. The event was front page news in many metropolitan newspapers and was praised by spectators, participants, and government officials alike.
Above, Charles O’Neill, vice-commander of the Port Washington American Legion Post, directs traffic with a flashlight during the blackout.

This is the understated entrance to The Moult. Unusually the door is on the side, not the front of the house. 
Since 1764 so many interesting people have walked through this entrance. We keep finding out more about this historic home.
Recently we have been hearing about Lady Clementine Waring who owned the house for much of the 20th Century. Amongst her charitable work she took in children from the kindertransport. It is extremely touching that in turbulent times The Moult’s door was opened providing peace and sanctuary to those in need.

Please let us know if you have any historic stories about The Moult

Jesmond Old Cemetery, 2018.

This is one for Lord of the Rings fans - though you may not recognise the last name this is Grace, Tolkien's aunt!

She rests in Jesmond Old Cemetery with her husband, William Charles Mountain. William was the vice-president of the North East Institute of Mining and was said to be a stern man.

His stern looks and hard attitude are what is believed to have led Tolkien to base the character Saruman on him.

A little piece of England on the beach. Who would guess this pretty 1859 steep-roofed building has been a church school, naval training institute, museum and WW1 pilot instruction centre? Mission Bay’s stone Tudor Revival-styled Melanesian Mission Building is now a café and restaurant.

Thursday's Wilburton Main Street Week post features the building located at the corner of Main and NE 1st St. Built in 1902 it is one of the oldest rock buildings in Wilburton. Under the leadership of J. Poe it first housed the Miners and Merchants Bank. As shown in the first photo, in 1903 it reorganized as the First National Bank. James Degnan was the first President, L.W. Bryan was Vice-President and H.D. Price was the cashier. In later years the building was transformed into a two story building and made into a hotel. The second photo was taken in 1950 when the building the Hotel Knight. The top floor of the building was badly damaged in the tornado of 1960 when it was the Wilburton Hotel. What was left of the second floor was eventually removed leaving it the one story building that is still in use today as Talbot's Flower Shop. #wilburtonmainstreet #mainstreetweek #wilburton #latimercountyoklahoma #latimercountytourism #visitlatimercounty #LCTTA #oklahomahistory #oklahomahistoricalsociety #OHS #thisisoklahoma #localhistory #waybackwhen
