history

Have you ever driven by this Cincinnati landmark and thought "What in the world is that?!" Well, wonder no more. That is Elsinore Arch! Inspired by Elsinore Castle featured in Hamlet, it was constructed in 1883 for the #Cincinnati Water Works. In the expansion of the Cincinnati Water Works main tunnel, a valve house was needed to control the flow of water at the base of the hill from the reservoir in Eden Park. So this structure was built to house the valves to control water flow as well as to provide an aesthetically pleasing park entrance. #ThrowbackThursday #cincylibrary #digitallibrary #history #cincyusa #library

Imagine this: you leave everything that is well-known and common for you and start a journey without knowing where and first of all IF you will end it. You travel through the places full of monsters from legends... That's how probably felt Columbus' team during their journey to 'India'. This legendary expedition was possible thanks to amazing modern ships, carabelas. The copies 1:1 show how tiny they were and how difficult it was to travel like this! Even after that I still want to discover unknown lands 😂🤗😍 /but alone, I couldn't stand spending so much time with people/ #lookingforportugalia #portugal #columbus #discovery #ship #history #greatdiscoveries #huelva #muelledelascarabelas #sea #ocean #colorsofh

Um pouco de história: essa construção atrás da gente é a Hagia Sofia, construída em 537 pelo imperador Justiniano na então Constantinopla, por 1000 anos foi a maior catedral do mundo, em 1453 foi convertida à Mesquita e em 1934 declarada museu #istambul #turquia #constantinopla #bizancio #history #trip #travel #aroundtheworld #wanderlust
