“The 102-foot staircase was hand-carved by approximately 600 slaves, who used pick axes and hand tools to cut their way through solid limestone, and the entire staircase took over 16 years to complete. It was only decades later that the impressive staircase was then named in honor of the 65-year reign of Queen Victoria, “who had signed a declaration to abolish slavery on her ascension to the throne in 1837.” Today, the Queen’s Staircase still acts as both a passageway to Fort Fincastle and a shortcut to Bennet’s Hill.” @nassauparadiseisland #thebahamas #nassaubahamas #queenstaircase #history #historicsite #fortfincastle #travelandpost #nofilter

When you finally find someone with a bigger nose than you👃 I'm currently phoneless (again), so if you haven't heard from me, that's why. I'm not dead!

Greta Gerwig delivered some prim and proper first look photos of her upcoming historical-fiction Little Women, but made it clear that the story she’s telling isn’t exactly the one you think you know: find out why at https://the-wide-screen-with-leith-skilling.com/uncategorized/first-look-at-greta-gerwigs-little-women/ #littlewomen #gretagerwig #emmawatson #saoirseronan #merylstreep #florencepugh #lauradern #timotheechalamet #ladybird #movies #louisamayalcott #books #classics #19thcentury #romance #drama #historicalfiction #history #movienews #wednesday #wednesdaywisdom #picoftheday #evening #tonight

Popocatepetl e Iztaccihuatl. The legendary love story of my people. Iztaccihuatl was a beautiful princess, and Popocatepetl was the chief aztec warrior. They fell in love, deeply. One day, a war broke out and the father of Iztaccihuatl, The Aztec Emperor, told Popocatepetl to bring him the head of the enemies chief and he would promise him Iztaccihuatl's hand in marriage. After months of fighting the enemy, a warrior alongside there tribe, who also loved Iztaccihuatl, send a false message. They won the war, but he said Popocatepetl died in battle. The Emperor was sad, and when he told Iztaccihuatl she couldnt stop crying. Her heart ached, she stopped eating, and cried until she got sick and died of sadness. While preparing her funeral, the warriors came home among them was Popocatepetl. The emperor in shock, told him he had recieved news of his death and his daughter died of devistation. Popocatepetl was heartbroken, he carried Iztaccihuatl deep in the mountains and ordered a funeral table built for her. He kneed next to her to watch over her and died of saddness to. The Gods saw the purity of there love so they made them into volcanoes. Time covering them with soil, grass and snow. Popocatepetl in nahuatl means, "Smoking Mountain" and Iztaccihuatl means, "Sleeping Woman." Popocatepetl erupts, flared in anger and devastation because his love has died. In the upper left side you can see Iztaccihuatl sleeping and Popocatepetl on the right,watching over her. This is my history, this is my culture. Im proud to be Indigenous. 🇲🇽 #Mexico #aztec #mayan #history #nahuatl #indigena #xicana #raza #brown #proud #familia #popocatepetl #itzaccihuatl #amor #love #chichimeca #iloveyou #culture #tradition #art #volcano #nature #photography #photo #unite #neverforgetyourroots #

On #ThisDayInHistory 19 June 1944, the Battle of the Philippine Sea begins. The Battle of the Philippine Sea (June 19–20, 1944) was a major naval battle of World War II that eliminated the Imperial Japanese Navy's ability to conduct large-scale carrier actions. It took place during the United States' invasion of the Mariana Islands during the Pacific War. The battle was the last of five major "carrier-versus-carrier" engagements between American and Japanese naval forces, and pitted elements of the United States Navy's Fifth Fleet against ships and aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy's Mobile Fleet and nearby island garrisons. This was the largest carrier-to-carrier battle in history. #war #battle #history #strategy #weapon #army #ww1 #ww2 #victory #tank #dayinhistory #thisdayinhistory #daytoday #eventstoday
Yesterday we took a trip on the National Trust Steam Yacht Gondola, the ship itself is 200 years old and was put together in 3 parts during renovation works. We caught the boat from Coniston Waters and took the 45 minute journey around the lake, The staff were very friendly and enthusiast and made the trip enjoyable. Another note: "does this remind either of you of the Duran Duran 'Rio' music video" 😂😂 Brilliant! #nationaltrust #steamyachtgondola #coniston #lakedistrict #tourism #tourist #photography #photographer #mobilephotography #affinityphoto #samsung #s9 #edit #british #history #historic #heritage #justgoshoot #ship #boat #serpent

And the struggle for EQUALITY and EQUITY continues#juneteenth
Today we celebrate #Juneteenth and reflect upon the end of slavery on this day in 1865. Union soldiers arrived at Galveston, Texas to inform the remaining slaves that they were finally free from bondage. Today, we celebrate this major part in African American history and continue their fight for justice, equality, and liberation. Do YOU think #Juneteenth should be a national holiday? . . . .

Un libro muy divertido que relata la historia de Perrey, una pionera de la música electrónica pop. Todo comienza con el teclado electrónico Ondioline el cual comienza a vender por todo el mundo hasta llegar a ser el segundo músico en tener y grabar con un sintetizador Moog. #moog #synth #history #book #electronicmusic #sound #techno #pop #house #pioneer

I've never been big on history, but I enjoy old things. As an engineer, mechanics of old cars fascinate me, as well as the stories they could tell. Rumor has it, this was once a getaway car. Now it hides in a forest, way off the beaten path. It has been stripped and gutted, beaten and torn, but it's still a beautiful thing.
The phrase "it's a shambles" started on this street in 970.AD! The candlemaker guild was crackin' the shits with the bloody meatmarket guild bastards (Flesshchameles) for also selling candles without their say so on the meat tables (shambles) in this street. #coolancientstuff #history #travel #uk #shambles #solusipsenon

Chichen Itza was my favorite place on our Cancun trip. We had a Mayan tour guide that was incredibly intuitive about us. He was so knowledgeable about the history and areas we visited. Over and over again I have been so grateful for really good tour guides when visiting historical places. They bring architecture, ruins, art, and artifacts to life. I am amazed each time I see such enormous ancient structures- how incredibly difficult and tedious and painstaking the process of building must have been. Many were built by slaves. Some were build out of religious conviction. Some out of desire for power or prestige. Some for entertainment. Some for life improvement. Currently we, with our children’s help, are working to put in our front yard landscaping. Where we live must have been a riverbed at one time. We have endless rocks. Last Fall we removed the top six inches of rock and dirt and now we are sifting the rocks out of another 9 to 12 inches. My back and shoulders are so sore. It is hot and dirty work. It feels like it’s 85% rocks and 15% dirt. As I work hour after hour, I have thought about Chichen Itza and other ancient structures and respected the work involved. It must have been hot and dirty work too. It must have felt unending, yet the end result was incredible. I hope ours is too. . . . . #seasonedgaterunners #mexicotravel #chichenitza #mayanruins #travelcouples
