Saw this picture in a window in the junction. Wonder what the story is behind this #historicalphotograph

treasures found when going through my grandmother's things: pictures of my great-grandmother growing up in Torch Lake, Michigan and Cincinnati in the early 1900s.

The diversity in the country of Suriname is one of the most interesting results of colonization. Coffee was attempted as a major crop here, but never quite caught on. Banana crops failed in 1915 due to a fungus outbreak, and coffee seedlings like these were planted as a replacement crop. With little elevation, production and quality were low even for robusta. Farmers turned to mining soon afterwards, so this picture captures a very specific point in time in the history of this country.

Suriname is one of the most demographically diverse countries, with the majority of people being the descendants of contract workers from South and Southeast Asia, escapees from the slave trade, and miners lured in from nearly everywhere on earth by the prospect of gold.

Fighter in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Oman, 1970's. The PFLO fought for the overthrow of the Omani monarchy and its replacement with a socialist state, inspired by South Yemen. They succeeded in liberating the province of Dhofar before the sultan of Oman crushed their revolution with support from the Shah of Iran and the British in 1976. #oman #popularfrontfortheliberationofoman #pflo #leftism #coldwar #marxism #historicalphotograph #dhofar #southyemen

We are a bit late this week & so instead of a #ThrowbackThursday, we decided to do a #FrowbackFriday! which features #historical photograph #4682 of, ‘Mountains to E.: belt of forest across middle distance’ south of Barberton, Mpumalanga province, South Africa (QDS 2531CC). The original was taken by John Acocks in August 1946 & its fantastic repeat was taken by Nico & Delia Oosthuizen in November 2015. Nico & Delia noted several changes in the landscape including an expansion of the pine plantations & an increase in bush encroachment on the hills. They added that due to the density of pine trees, the repeat could not be taken from the exact site, & so had to be taken from a different spot. Even so, this is a fantastic #repeat - thank you so much Nico & Delia for taking & uploading this photograph! Each one contributes to our understanding of how landscapes have changed & are changing over time. There are several other photographs from the Barberton area, can you find them & take their #repeats?

Look closely and get a little spooked by the ghostly faces that suddenly become visible in the background of this photograph from c. 1905!

Thanks to double exposure, the photographer (a certain G. S. Smallwood from Chicago, Illinois) managed to create this so-called "spirit photograph" of a girl holding flowers surrounded by three spectral figures.

#citizenscientist, John Watermeyer, & I returned to #silverminenaturereserve today to try to find the exact site of the #quarry. John has visited #silvermine several times with different people (including me) on a number of occasions to find the location of this pic but has had little success. Today I am please to say that we were successful! 💃😁 we finally found the ledge & the overhang that we have been searching for all this time! Secret to our success today? We stopped looking for the overhang as the main feature & rather tried to match everything else first. Once we were certain that everything else was aligned, we then looked around for an appropriate ledge with an overhang. It took us 3 hours this morning but we finally got it! It feels like a great achievement after looking for this site for so long - perseverance definitely pays off! 😊 See some pics of the day here 😊 @samantha.venter

This #ThrowbackThursday features historical photograph #2210 of, ‘Kalahari Gemsbok Park. Dune country between Kameelsleep & Auob’ in South Africa (QDS 2520AC) taken by MJA Werger (BRI collection) in 1972. Seventeen years ago, the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park in South Africa joined with Gemsbok National Park in Botswana to become what is now called the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (opened to the public in 2000), the first official transfrontier park in Africa. Kgalagadi means “Kalahari” or “the dry land” or “thirstland” in Khoisan. The reserve lies against the eastern boundary of Namibia with South Africa & straddles the border between South Africa & Botswana covering an area of approximately 38,000 km². This would be a tricky but interesting photograph to #repeat! There are several other photographs from the park, can you find them & take their #repeats?

#WIDN Woke up early this sunday morning, with working saturday you would think i could let myself sleep in on sunday.
Nope, my brain had other things on its mind, how many days till chritmas? How long till i get my dream job? What is my dream job? How can i be more hygge? How do you say hygge? What is the history of liverpool? Is this definitly a victorian terrace or does it edge into another era? The list is endless... .
In my early morning research i found out that the pizza takeaway round the corner was originally a ticket office for a zoo and there main attraction was a chimp called pongo, poor pongo! .
I also found this pic which shows the green outside my house, it no longer has trees as big as this and i think the railings have changed but seems similar other than that. I have found it is literally used by every man and his dog.
Being very much a dog person i am often glued to the window when i see a newby having a sniff around 😂🤗 #victorianterraced #renovation #historyofliverpool #historicalphotograph #myhomevibe #blackandwhitephotography #interiordesign #myrenovation #oldphotos #oldliverpool #history #everymanandhisdog

Armistice Day: observed on November 11th every year and commemorates the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany at 11am on November 11th, 1918—in other words, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Although hostilities continued in some areas, the armistice essentially brought an end to four years of fighting in the First World War.

Yesterday, #citizenscientist, John Watermeyer & I went to #Silvermine Nature Reserve (QDS 3418AB) to take some #repeat #photographs, one of which I have decided to showcase in today’s #ThrowbackThursday. This #historical photograph #5137 was taken by David Jones in the late 1960s. The original caption is, ‘Silvermine region (Pines)’ & was taken before pine #plantation removal (& subsequent fynbos #restoration) began in #silverminenaturereserve around the 1990s. This photograph was fairly difficult to find because most of the skyline is blocked by #pine trees. We think that it was taken from Silvermine East, potentially toward Silvermine West. Do you recognise this section of skyline in Silvermine? Please comment & tag me @samantha.venter, with any suggestions. There are several photographs taken in & around this reserve. Can you find them & take a repeat?

This #ThrowbackThursday features historical photograph #5153 of ‘Swaziland highveld’ in QDS 2631AC taken near Mbabane, the capital of Swaziland, by David Jones in 1969. Swaziland is a land-locked country in southern Africa bounded by South Africa & Mozambique. It is roughly divided up into three main regions: the #Highveld in the west, #Midveld in the middle (roughly), & the #Lowveld in the east. The west is largely dominated by #grassland with patches of forest while the middle to eastern portions of the country are largely dominated by #savanna. There are several #photographs taken in & around this #kingdom. Can you find them & take a repeat?

Just came across this incredible picture by chance:

Painters clinging onto the suspender cables of Brooklyn Bridge, New York. Photo taken by Eugene de Salignac (1861-1943) on 7th October 1914, when health & safety regulations were clearly a little more lax than today!

In the second image you can see a rather nerve-racking close-up! Just don't look down ;-) #nervesofsteel

In time for the clocks going back tonight:

A series of photographs, taken 1913-1914, showing a fundraising campaign clock at the construction site of the new J. P. Morgan's headquarters on Broad & Wall Street, New York. The four million dollar campaign, for a joint YMCA/YWCA, was the largest in world history up to that time. Campaign clocks like this one were erected at various strategic locations to keep the project in the public eye. The last photograph shows the completed bank headquarters.

Circa 1967: Officers transport an individual to the police ambulance. Back then, a lot of EMS work was provided by the police department down to the transfer to hospital. How many of you current sworn are glad they are more "separate" now? (Aside from being first to secure the scene and render aide until a form of EMS or Fire arrives). ⚫🔵⚫

October 1976: The task force was the first of its kind in United States Police history. By the end of it in 1978, all officers were injured, three in gun battles. Two suspects were killed. 350 + individuals were arrested and charged with 450 criminal offenses. The robbery rate was reduced more than 28 percent. What follows is a short history of the men who were known as the “last gun-slingers”---SDPD’s Border Alien Robbery Force. 10 police department volunteers and 4 officers from the U.S. Border Patrol and Customs Patrol were trained to "put a lid" on the crimes committed against legal and illegal persons in the South Bay area. They covered an 8 mile stretch of terrain on the U.S. Mexico Border, essentially using themselves as human bait. With $200,000 worth of equipment they relentlessly fought against the rough terrain (which included rattlesnakes, tarantulas, and cholla cacti) while seeking out bandits, rapists, smugglers, cartels, and drug dealers. Illegal aliens were often in danger of being killed by their smugglers and BARF made efforts to stop this. After 19 months, the federal government made no efforts to assist the BARF team. Police Chief Bill Kolender ordered the most dangerous assignment in the SDPD be permanently disbanded. ⚫🔵⚫

This #ThrowbackThursday features #historicalphotograph #48 of ‘Leucadendron salignum with Leucospermum & Metalasia’ near ‘Fish Hoek?’ in the Western Cape (QDS 3418AB) taken by IB Pole Evans in 1919 & its fantastic #repeat taken by John Watermeyer in 2017. Some #historical images, like this one, are very difficult to repeat because there is little, if any, #landscape features to help you. John did a great job here using the rocks in the foreground as a guide. He noted that the #vegetation was still recovering from a burn that happened two years ago & that there is no sign of the alien plant species that were present in the area until about 20 years ago. John & #citizenscientist, Clare Mortimore, have repeated many of the historical images in this QDS – visit the QDS to see more of their repeats. Thanks John for this fantastic repeat!

Just west of Aus, is an area famous for a local population of feral #horses (made up of several breeding herds) that live in the #desert & whose origins are shrouded in mystery. These versatile horses have managed to survive for more than 100 years in the heat of the #Namib Desert where there is little shade & where temperatures reach over 40 °C in summer. The well-defined mountains in the background should help you to locate the position from which the original #photograph was taken. Can you find this photo & take its #repeat?

I hate cameras. They are so much more sure than I am about everything. ~John Steinbeck

Born on February 27, 1902, in Salinas, California, John Steinbeck dropped out of college and worked as a manual laborer before achieving success as a writer. His 1939 novel, The Grapes of Wrath, about the migration of a family from the Oklahoma Dust Bowl to California, won a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. Steinbeck served as a war correspondent during World War II, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. He died in New York City in 1968.

John noted that the, “#Vegetation on distant slope is much denser (dominated by Leucodendron laureolum). While foreground dense patch of Protea laurifolia was burnt in March 2015. Leucospermum conocarpodendron is still present but perhaps at slightly lower densities.” In addition, he noted that the, “Site was infested with #alienvegetation approx. 20 years ago but was cleared by hackers. There is still evidence of old cut alien stems”. Thank you John for this fantastic repeat!

1980: It was rare to see Ronald Reagan without his suit jacket during his campaign. In fact, this photo almost never happened had it not been for photographer Bob Lampert chasing down the pilot prior to their departing flight. President Reagan had promised members of SDPD's Criminal Intelligence Unit/Detectives--who were asked to assist the Secret Service during former President Reagan's campaign stop in San Diego--that he would take a photograph with them. He stepped off the plane without his jacket, apologized profusely, and took the photograph. The orange coloration on the right side of the photograph is the markings of the LAST photo on the film roll! Retired SDPD Lt. Thomas Giaquinto (current museum Chief Archivist/Secretary) stands to the left of President Reagan. ⚫🔵⚫

Huisrivier Pass is an c. 13.4 km long stretch along the #R62 in the #littlekaroo that runs between #Calitzdorp & #Ladismith in the Western Cape. The name is derived from the Khoi word, ‘Huis’ meaning ‘Willow Tree’, not the Afrikaans word meaning ‘House’. The pass travels alongside the impressive #Swartberg Mountain range where the #mountains are convoluted with deep rocky & impassable ravines. The geology of the pass is unstable, & as such, has been upgraded, & sections relocated, several times since it was first opened in 1807. In 1951, surveys were conducted to find a safe & permananet route, which took 10 years to finalise until the pass was finally re-opened in 1966 – these works have been called, ‘an engineering marvel’ (2). Historical photograph #5162 in today’s #ThrowbackThursday shows a #historical image along “Huisriver Pass” taken by David Jones in 1968, just two years after completion (http://rephotosa.adu.org.za/Search_photos.php?option=search-rec&rec=5162). Can you find this image & take its repeat?

Vive la France! In honor of Bastille Day, we’ve chosen to feature perhaps the most iconic #French landmark, the #EiffelTower, completed almost exactly 100 years after the events of #BastilleDay.
.
On July 14, 1789, #Parisians stormed the Bastille, the great fortress-prison in #Paris, out of fear and on the search for weapons. While no great political prisoners were being held (and released), the event is seen as a key moment of the French Revolution. Shortly after this, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, was proclaimed, one of the great documents in history.
.
This #stereograph, a very popular method of creating 3D images in the 19th and early 20th century, dates from the #1930s. According to @americanantiquarian (American Antiquarian Society), stereographs were used not only for entertainment, but also education and even by journalists reporting on current events. Did you know that @bplboston has an incredible collection of over 5,000 #stereographs?! You can check them out on Digital Commonwealth (@digitalcommonwealth) without leaving your couch!

This #ThrowbackThursday features #historical #photograph #146 taken in #Silvermine Nature Reserve (just above St James) looking towards Kalk Bay, Western Cape (QDS 3418AB) by IB Pole Evans in the early 1900s (likely around 1919), & its awesome #repeat taken by #citizenscientist, John Watermeyer. The first thing you may notice is the increase in height & density of the #vegetation (compare rock visibility in original & repeat). In addition, the density of houses along the bay has increased substantially (both in the foreground & distance) & #KalkBayHarbour has been developed since the orginal was taken almost a century ago. Thank you John for this fantastic #repeat!

This photograph of “Boston, as the Eagle and the Wild Goose See It” is the earliest existing #aerial photograph taken in the US. It was shot by #JamesWallaceBlack (1825–1896) in 1860 from #SamuelKing's balloon tethered over #BostonCommon. A copy resides in @BPLboston’s #PrintDept.

The diversity in the country of Suriname is one of the most interesting results of colonization. Coffee was attempted as a major crop here, but never quite caught on. Banana crops failed in 1915 due to a fungus outbreak, and coffee seedlings like these were planted as a replacement crop. With little elevation, production and quality were low even for robusta. Farmers turned to mining soon afterwards, so this picture captures a very specific point in time in the history of this country.

Suriname is one of the most demographically diverse countries, with the majority of people being the descendants of contract workers from South and Southeast Asia, escapees from the slave trade, and miners lured in from nearly everywhere on earth by the prospect of gold.

"Dance like nobody's watching," they said. But for me, the correct sentence is: "Dance WHEN nobody's watching."
.
It's pretty obvious. Folks who are there but we choose to ignore them are different from those who don't watch and witness.

So I choose to dance when nobody's watching, cause nothing is more liberated than doing whatever we want to do without people watching it.

After all, I'm not tough enough to handle people's negativity. Their degrading comment, their insincere applause, their talks behind my back. It's just so... bothersome.

But if I'm obliged to have an audience--as a real companion, not a fake clapper, I'll choose the fluffy one.

Oh, Teddy. He should consider himself lucky for being invited to watch my exclusive dancing show. Then again, he deserves it. He's the best kind of audience that anyone could ask for.

All he's gonna do are sit, stay, and still.
No interrupting, offending, or fake applauding.

Plus, when the show comes to an end and I need someone to hug as a small celebration, he's definitely worth choosing. He'll hug me in reply with a fluffy cuddle, not a painful stab on the back. ---
Girl Dancing In Front Of Her Teddy Bear (Paris, 1961).

Circa 1940s |1st photo: Members of the School Safety Patrol. 2nd photo: A member of the School Safety Patrol salutes Chief Clifford Peterson. The school Safety Patrol was established in 1935 by the San Diego Police Department and began with just one school. Its purpose was to assist elementary school children across uncontrolled intersections on their way to and from school and to reduce the number of pedestrian and bicycle collisions involving elementary age students.⚫🔵⚫
