Rye Harbour Nature Reserve | East Sussex, England | c. 1970
•
Rye Harbour is a village located on the East Sussex coast in southeast England, near the estuary of the River Rother. Located some two miles (3.2 km) downstream of the town of Rye, the village of and the River Rother from Rye seawards is under the control of the Environment Agency
•
Rye Harbour village is 200 years old, having been built on an extension of the shingle beaches, progressively deposited by the sea over the last 800 years. These deposits limit access to the original open medieval port of Rye, now two miles (3 km) inland from the sea. The village has one of the chain of Martello Towers constructed during the Napoleonic Wars
•
The initial establishment was that of a company of dragoons in 1805, followed shortly after by the first fishermen's huts and the building of the Martello Tower (1809/10). As the Napoleonic wars ended so the smuggling trade which had long flourished all along the south coast again increased in scope, leading to the establishment of the Coast Blockade. A watch house was built about 1825 to provide shelter and support for the blockade detachments and still stands, complete with the flagstaff for signalling to shipping
•
Rye Harbour Nature Reserve was established in 1970 and offers special wildlife experiences to 360,000 visitors a year. Managed by Sussex Wildlife Trust, it has national and international designations and is home to more than 300 rare or endangered species. There is a staffed information centre 300 yards (270 m) south of the village and the private road and birdwatching hides are ideal for wheelchair users.
•
This year, a Discovery Center is being built on the Nature Reserve. This is a new visitor centre, and a joint project between Sussex Wildlife Trust and the Friends of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

Queenstown Stadium | Queenstown, Singapore | c. 1970
•
The Queenstown Stadium is Singapore’s first neighbourhood sports complex. It was officially opened on August 15th 1970 by Lim Kim San, then Minister for Education, to provide more recreational facilities for residents in Queenstown
•
Standing on ten acres of land lying between Stirling and Mei Chin Road, the Sports Complex has a 400-metre 8-lane bitumen running track enclosing a football field. An elevated gallery with a seating capacity for 3,000 spectators runs along the athletic field. There are  also five swimming pools, one of which is a 50-metre Olympic-size pool.
•
The Queenstown Stadium was a premier location for National Day parades and regional sporting competitions in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1973, the stadium played host to the Singapore Armed Forces’ first Colours Parade where 3,000 soldiers took part in a 10-kilometre route march from Jalan Besar to Queenstown Sports Complex
•
In 1975 and 1983, decentralised parades on National Day were held at the stadium to allow more Singaporeans to participate in the festivities. The stadium was also home to the Tanjong Pagar United League - a professional football club in Singapore that took part in Singapore's S.League from 1996 to 2004, and from 2011 to 2014. The club withdrew from the S.League after the 2004 season because of financial problems but returned to the S.League in 2011
•
Today, the stadium remains a well-known facility for running and fitness with a running organization sponsoring group-training sessions twice a week. Queenstown is another of the long list of public facilities operated by the SSC. It is located about a 10-minute walk from the transit station

Camp Wandawega | Elkhorn, Wisconsin | c. 1920s
•
Camp Wandawega is located in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The historic Camp is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Wisconsin Register of Historic Places. Camp buildings date to the 1920s when the resort was operated as a brothel and speakeasy
•
Initially built as the Wandawega Hotel in 1925 by Chicagoans seeking to capitalize on Prohibition, the location was outfitted for the distribution of liquor, prostitution and gambling with multiple exits, trapdoors and hidden hatches to conceal stockpiles. After a Federal raid in 1931, it was temporarily shuttered by a “Prohibition Padlock”
•
Even with the end of Prohibition, the demand for illegal fare remained and the location was a popular hangout for criminals on the run, local law enforcement, and Chicagoans hankering for some debauchery. In 1942, Anna Beckford Peck - manager and famed ‘madam’ of the time - was sentenced and sent away to Taycheedah, the womens’ prison near Fon du Lac
•
By 1951, the location was renamed Wandawega Lake Resort by its new owners, the Andrzejewski family from Chicago until in 1961, the Catholic Church purchased the property. Latvian priests who fled war-torn Europe intended to turn “Vandavega” into their retirement home
•
Decades later, with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Vatican instructs the Marian Fathers to sell the retreat and return to Latvia. In 2004, David Hernandez and Tereasa Surratt purchased the property and have been restoring it as ‘Camp Wandawega’ ever since. Hernandez attended the camp as a child, as he is half-Latvian and his family were regulars there from the 1960s to the 1980s. The camp is on 25 acres and includes a 3-story hotel, lodge, cottages, and historic memorabilia

Koryo Hotel | Pyongyang, North Korea | c. 1985
•
The Koryo Hotel is the second largest operating hotel in North Korea, the largest being the Yanggakdo Hotel. The Ryugyong Hotel is larger than both, but is not yet operating. The twin-towered building is 143 metres (469 ft) tall and contains 43 stories. Erected in 1985 under Kim Il-sung, it was intended to "showcase the glory and strength of the DPRK."
•
"Koryo" is the name of an early kingdom which is the source of the English name "Korea". The Koryo Hotel replaced an older hotel of the same name, but in a different location. For a time after 1946 the leader of North Korea's Democratic Party Cho Man-sik was kept under house arrest in the older Koryo Hotel
•
Situated close to Pyongyang Station in Chung-kuyok, central Pyongyang, the hotel is rated three stars by Western standards. North Korea rates it as five stars. The hotel's extravagance is exemplified by its entryway, which consists of a 9-metre (30 ft) wide jade dragon's mouth that leads into an expansive lobby dominated by a mosaic of North Korean cultural symbols. The mosaic tiles make use of a wide variety of precious metals and gemstones underneath low-dispersion glass panes, which are replaced biannually to preserve the mosaic's luster.
•
Amenities include a hard currency gift shop, gym, a swimming pool, a revolving restaurant on the 45th floor, a circular bar on the 44th floor and two cinemas. The hotel also features a billiards room on the second floor and a casino in the basement, staffed by Chinese workers. Amenities do not include the use of the Internet
•
By some reports guests are prevented by guards from leaving the hotel. However, others report the ability to wander off the hotel grounds. The hotel is a few blocks from the city's restaurant district and the Pyongyang Railroad Station

Dublin Area Rapid Transit | Dublin, Ireland | c. 1984
•
The Dublin Area Rapid Transit system (DART) is an electrified rapid transit railway network serving the coastline and city centre of Dublin, capital city of the Ireland. The service makes up the core of Dublin's suburban railway network, stretching from Greystones, County Wicklow at its southernmost terminus to Howth and Malahide in north County Dublin
•
The track bed on which DART services currently run was originally laid out by the Dublin and Kingstown Railway, Ireland's first railway line, which ran from Kingstown (now Dún Laoghaire) to Dublin city centre and opened in December 1834. The northern and southern extensions to this line are parts of the Belfast and Rosslare main lines respectively.
•
Prior to electrification, the line was operated using 1950s era CIÉ 2600 Class rail cars which had been converted in the early 1970s to push-pull operation. These diesel trains were powered on one end by a CIE 201 Class locomotive and a driving trailer carriage on the other. This service was notoriously uncomfortable, unreliable and overcrowded
•
Since 1984, the DART system has operated as an electrified railway, established by Córas Iompair Éireann to replace the ageing fleet of diesel-powered locomotives. With the disbanding of CIÉ, the running of the service was taken over in 1987 by Iarnród Éireann, Ireland's national rail operator
•
Today, DART is operated by a mixed fleet of electric multiple unit trains serving 31 stations along 53 kilometres of track, and carries ~16 million passengers per year. As of 2019, the trains run every ten minutes on weekdays with a reduced service on weekends. Services run all year except for Christmas Day and St. Stephen's Day

Les Puces du Canal | Lyon, France | c. 1995
•
Les Puces is a well known flea market located on the outskirts of Lyon, on the Jonage Canal. It is one of the most famous Sunday activities for many in the area, drawing in 500,000 visitors per year and between 5000 and 8000 per week
•
Lyon is the third-largest city and second-largest urban area of France. It is located in the country's east-central part at the confluence of the rivers Rhône and Saône, about 470 km (292 mi) south from Paris, known for its cuisine and gastronomy, and historical and architectural landmarks; part of it is a registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site
•
With more than 400 exhibitors showcasing their wares in the northeastern suburb of Villeurbanne, Les Puces is France's second-biggest flea market. The face-lifted Hangar where the market is today located brings together reputed antique dealers, showcasing a large variety of antiques from the 16th to 20th centuries
•
Originally located at Place Riviere in Villeurbanne, Les Puces left their historic site in the early 1970s. They then moved to the Feyssine, but were forced once again to move because of the construction of the northern ring road.
•
Since its inauguration in September 1995, thanks to Denise David et Jean-Pierre Gaboriaux, Les Puces du Canal very quickly won the hearts of many locals. Today, its new president, Stephan Blanchet, together with site manager Jerome Balme, have numerous projects in mind to inject more dynamism into Les Puces, while safeguarding its DNA

Amer Fort | Rajasthan, India | c. 967
•
Amer Fort is a fort located in Amer, Rajasthan, India. Amer is a town located 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Located high on a hill, it is the principal tourist attraction in Jaipur
•
The town of Amer was originally built by Meenas, and later it was ruled by Raja Man Singh I. Amer Fort is known for its artistic style elements. With its large ramparts and series of gates and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake, which is the main source of water for the Amer Palace
•
Constructed of red sandstone and marble, the opulent palace is laid out on four levels, each with a courtyard. It consists of the Diwan-i-Aam, or "Hall of Public Audience", the Diwan-i-Khas, or "Hall of Private Audience", the Sheesh Mahal (mirror palace), or Jai Mandir, and the Sukh Niwas where a cool climate is artificially created by winds that blow over a water cascade within the palace. Hence, the Amer Fort is also popularly known as the Amer Palace
•
The palace was the residence of the Rajput Maharajas and their families. At the entrance to the palace near the fort's Ganesh Gate, there is a temple dedicated to Shila Devi, a goddess of the Chaitanya cult, which was given to Raja Man Singh when he defeated the Raja of Jessore, Bengal in 1604
•
The palace and Jaigarh Fort are considered one complex, as the two are connected by a subterranean passage. This passage was meant as an escape route in times of war to enable the royal family members and others in the Amer Fort to shift to the more redoubtable Jaigarh Fort
•
At the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in 2013, Amer Fort, along with five other forts of Rajasthan, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the group Hill Forts of Rajasthan

Franco Parenti Theater | Milan, Italy | c. 1972
•
Located a stone’s throw from Milan’s characteristic Porta Romana, the Franco Parenti Theater was founded in 1972 as the ‘Salone Pier Lombardo' by Franco Parenti and Andrée Shamamah, together with Giovanni Testori, Dante Isella and Gian Maurizio Fercioni

The theater has bee characterized since the beginning as a singular place for the expression of ideas, thoughts and different languages, from the classics to contemporary playwriting, from philosophy to music and dance. Plays have originated here that have left their mark on the history of Italian theatre.
•
Upon Parenti’s death in 1989, Andrée Shammah assumed full management of the theatre, and chose to name it after the deceased co-founder without changing its eclectic vocation
•
The theater’s program also featured a vibrant and diversified range of cultural events, concerts, film exhibitions, conferences, festivals and presentations, making Teatro Parenti a point of reference on Milan’s cultural scene

    The theater’s program also featured a vibrant and diversified range of cultural events, concerts, film exhibitions, conferences, festivals and presentations, making Teatro Parenti a point of reference on Milan’s cultural scene

    The theater went through a major renovation from 2004 - 2008 with a design by Michele De Lucchi, today it includes three halls for performances, two foyers, two rehearsal rooms, new dressing rooms and offices, a space for post-performance refreshments and a cafeteria. It remains one of the historic institutions of independent and experimental theatre in Milan

Yosemite Valley Chapel | Yosemite Valley, California | c. 1879
•
The wooden Yosemite Valley Chapel was designed by San Francisco architect Charles Geddes in the Carpenter Gothic style. It was built by Geddes' son-in-law, Samuel Thompson, for the California State Sunday School Association, at a cost of between three to four thousand dollars in 1879
•
The first service was held on June 7th that year, and the church was filled to overflowing by delegates for the National Sunday School Assembly who were meeting in Yosemite Valley at that time. Originally built in the "Lower Village” as it was then called, the chapel was moved to its present location in 1901, as the old Lower Village dwindled
•
As stipulated in the organization's application for permission, the chapel is an interdenominational facility. The L-shaped frame chapel covers an area of about 1,470 square feet (137 m2) and is clad in board and batten siding with a prominent steeple. It seats about 250 people
•
The chapel was restored in 1965, when its foundations were raised in response to a 1964 flood, but was damaged in the 1997 Yosemite Valley floods and required repair. The structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 12, 1973.
•
Although the Chapel continues today primarily as a house of worship, over the years it has become a popular wedding destination due to the spectacular setting and the quaint beauty of the building. The first Chapel wedding took place on October 24, 1884

Schönbrunn Palace | Vienna, Austria | c. ~1740
•
Schönbrunn Palace (German: Schloss Schönbrunn [ʃøːnˈbʁʊn]) is a former imperial summer residence located in Vienna, Austria. The 1,441-room Baroque palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historical monuments in the country
•
In 1569, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II purchased a large floodplain of the Wien river beneath a hill, situated between Meidling and Hietzing, where a former owner, in 1548, had erected a mansion called Katterburg
•
During the next century, the area was used as a hunting and recreation ground. Eleonora Gonzaga, spent much time there and was bequeathed the area as her widow's residence after the death of her husband, Ferdinand II. From 1638 to 1643, she added a palace to the Katterburg mansion, while in 1642 came the first mention of the name "Schönbrunn" on an invoice
•
The Schönbrunn Palace in its present form was built and remodelled during the 1740–50s during the reign of empress Maria Theresa who received the estate as a wedding gift. Franz I commissioned the redecoration of the palace exterior in the neoclassical style as it appears today
•
Franz Joseph, the longest-reigning emperor of Austria, was born at Schönbrunn and spent a great deal of his life there. Following the downfall of the Habsburg monarchy in 1918, the palace became the property of the newly founded Austrian Republic and was preserved as a museum
•
After World War II, the palace was requisitioned to provide offices for both the British Delegation to the Allied Commission for Austria, and for the headquarters for the small British Military Garrison present in Vienna
•
Since the mid-1950s it has been a major tourist attraction. The history of the palace and its vast gardens spans over 300 years, reflecting the changing tastes, interests, and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs

Roskilde Mansion | Roskilde, Denmark | c. 1736
•
Roskilde Mansion (Danish: Det Gule Palæ i Roskilde), also known as Roskilde Palace, or the Yellow Mansion (Danish: Det Gule Palæ) is a former royal Baroque mansion in central Roskilde, Denmark located just east of Roskilde Cathedral
•
The Mansion replaced a bishop's palace which had stood at the site since the Middle Ages. Commissioned by King Christian VI, the new building was constructed to provide a residence for the royal family when they passed through the city or attended royal funerals and other ceremonies in Roskilde Cathedral. Lauritz de Thurah who had recently been engaged as royal master builder, was charged with its design in 1733 and the palace was completed in 1736
•
During the English siege of Copenhagen in 1807, the mansion served as headquarters of general Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington. Later in the century, it provided a venue for the so-called Assembly of the Estates (Danish: Stænderforsamlingerne for øerne), a key event leading up to the adoption of the Danish constitution in 1849
•
Built in the Baroque style, with yellow-washed masonry and red tile roofs, the four-winged complex consists of a two-storey main wing, two one-storey lateral wings and a curved gate wing opening to the Stændertorvet. The four wings are connected by curving galleries. Dating from the 13th century, the Gate of Absalon which connects the mansion to the apse of Roskilde Cathedral, is the only surviving part of the former bishop's palace
•
Since 1924, one of the wings has been home to the office and official residence of the Bishop of Roskilde. The rest of the complex houses Roskilde Museum of Contemporary Art, founded in 1991, as well as Roskilde Art Association and the Palace Collections. The mansion's gardens and courtyard are also used for exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events

Yazdani Bakery | Mumbai, India | c. 1950
•
The Yazdani Bakery is a traditional bakery and cafe offering Persian breads, baked treats & chai. It has been owned and operated by the Zend family since 1950. Rashid Zend is the second generation owner, along with his two brothers
•
As bakers in Iran, the family continued their culinary tradition when their grandfather arrived in India, originally opening a bakery in Mumbai, where their grandmother would make all the baked goods at the time, while their grandfather tended to the customers. Yazdani was later set up in 1950 after Rashid’s father decided to let go of a partnership business and set up his own shop
•
The structure of the bakery with its sky blue exterior and red painted roof stands alone among the elegantly carved British architecture on one side and commercial buildings on the other. The building, built in the early 20th century, was originally a Japanese bank, which was later sold off. It’s spacious interior is surprising based on its small exterior look
•
The bakery still utilizes traditional baking methods with a large table to knead dough, an old style bread slicing machine, and diesel ovens to bring the breads and other goods to fruition
•
Less than a dozen workers have been employed at Yazeani for almost all their lives - they produce all products by hand, attracting many visitors from all around the world. One speciality is their bread pudding, which is typically sold out within hours of opening - other popular Yazdani fare includes khari biscuits, apple pies and mawa cakes
