Desde 2008, quando foi inaugurada, a Ponte Estaiada Octavio Frias de Oliveira se tornou rapidamente um marco paulistano, com seus 138 metros de altura e 144 cabos de aço pintados de amarelo. Parceria entre prefeitura e governo do Estado, que desembolsaram R$ 260 milhões, a construção liga o Brooklin ao Morumbi e admite um fluxo de até 8 mil veículos por hora; “Minha ideia foi fazer um emblema do arrojo da cidade”, disse o arquiteto João Valente Neto, um dos responsáveis pelo projeto.
Curiosidade: desde então varias pontes e viadutos estaiados surgiram pela cidade e pelo estado!

  • Kent, England, 3 September, 1940 "Battle of Britain". Hop pickers' children from the East End of London are hiding in a slit trench at the edge of a field whilst watching a dog fight overhead during the battle of Britain. (Possibly at Beltring Hop Farm in Kent, England.) Photo by John Topham (for 'Life' magazine), this was his most famous image. It was used in a propaganda campaign alongside the slogan "Help England And It Won't Happen Here" which helped to convince millions of Americans to join the war against Nazi Germany. 'Hop Picking'
For centuries, the work was done by Londoners who flooded into Kent at the end of every summer to pick the hops, prized by brewers, which were then the county's most important crop.

At its height, from the Twenties to the Fifties, about 200,000 East Enders - mostly women and children - made the annual pilgrimage down into the Kentish hop gardens, filling the 'hopper's specials' trains which left from London Bridge station in the early hours of the morning.

Those who couldn't afford the train ticket would walk the 36 miles to the hop gardens at Paddock Wood, Maidstone and Faversham, sleeping by the road when they got tired.
So popular was the annual hop that it was known as the 'Londoner's holiday', and for many East Enders it was the nearest to a holiday they ever got.

  • In its peak year, Independence Mine (Alaska-Pacific Consolidated Mining Company) employed over 200 men, blasted nearly a dozen tunnel miles and produced gold worth more than $17 million dollars in today’s currency. 22 pioneering families lived here full time with eight children attending the Territorial School. 
Closed in 1943, but added to the List of National Register of Historic Places in 1974, many of the original buildings are still standing and are fascinating to see. These Alaskan pioneers certainly had the best view of the valley 🙌🏼

  • I don’t know how I have never seen Bryce Hospital before but I had to stop to take a peek inside the other day when I passed it for the first time. The building opened in 1861 as the Alabama State Hospital for the Insane and operated well into the 2000’s. It looks like construction is at a standstill but I can’t wait to see what the university ends up doing with this incredible building. I’m sure there are some interesting stories here from the past 150+ years...

  • Paratroopers inside the fuselage of an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley aircraft during training at RAF Ringway, Manchester, August 1942.

The Whitley was the RAF's largest bomber at the outbreak of war. In 1939 it soon became obsolete due to its slowness and vulnerability. 
It was then handed over to Airborne Forces, being used for parachute training until superseded by the Albemarle and C-47. It carried the parachute assault parties for the raid on the Tragino Aqueduct in Italy in 1941 and the Bruneval Raid in February 1942. 
For parachuting, the rear turret was removed and a circular aperture fitted with hinged doors was cut in the floor. Sitting with their feet in the hole, parachutists would launch themselves through the exit on the Parachute Jump Instructor's command.

As the hole was nearly three feet deep inexperienced parachutists were liable to smash their face on the opposite face of the floor opening, an event known as "ringing the bell". The effect of ringing the bell was dependant on the strength of the head strike but included bruising, broken noses, black eyes, and concussion as many Ringway students will testify!

The Whitley could carry 10 parachute soldiers with a radius of action of at least 500 miles. However its suitability for parachuting was regularly questioned and the eventual availability of more suitable transport aircraft later in the war led to it being phased out.

On the night of 29/30 April 1942 No. 58 Squadron flying Whitleys bombed the Port of Ostend in Belgium. This was the last operational mission by a Whitley equipped bomber squadron.

  • Tutankhamun was the 12th pharaoh of the 18th Egyptian dynasty. The son of Akhenaten and step son of Nefertiti. Akhenaten being famous for relocating the kingdom Amarna. Also changing the traditional religion of Egypt from worshipping many Gods, to worshiping one God named Aten/Aton(the sun disc). Nefertiti whose name means "a beautiful woman has come," was perhaps one of the most powerful women. With Akhenaten going to great lengths to display her as an equal, some arts depicting her also as a pharaoh. 
Tutankhamun gained the throne when he was 9 and died at the age of 18.  Yet during his reign Egypt returned to its traditional religion. The capital city moved back to Thebes and eventually the city of Amarna was abandoned. Thus re no storing the old traditions. It is likely that his tomb was built for someone else and was used to bury the young Pharaoh when he died unexpectedly. As the spatial arrangement is seen to be the tomb normally associated with royal queens.

But his fame was recognised after his death, being discovered by Lord Carnarvon’s excavation. The young water boy working with them stumbled across the entrance having noticed a unusual rock . Howard Carter, who was a British archaeologist and Egyptologist. Further investigated and discovered the tomb with many objects still intact. The most valuable was the sarcophagus of the golden king.
“Can you see anything?”
"Yes, wonderful things!" .
