走過繁華與落沒，見識這裡的美麗與哀愁。Standing at the crossroads…🚶🚶🔜
They say Wannian Commercial Building is a hobby nerd's paradise, I agree. Also, this old building is definitely a landmark of Ximending. Nowdays everywhere is claw machine shop, but Wannian Commercial Building always represents another trends here. It’s old but dope. If you grew up in Taipei like me, you know what I mean.🌈 #missrainbow#西門町#萬年大樓
Ook wel oude brug,
Maastrichts: aw brögk
is een van oorsprong 13e-eeuwse stenen boogbrug over de rivier de Maas in de Nederlandse stad Maastricht. De brug is genoemd naar de 4e-eeuwse bisschop van Maastricht, Sint-Servaas, maar kreeg zijn huidige naam pas in 1932.

De Clare’s son, also named Gilbert, took for his wife Alice of Angouleme. We know that Alice was half niece of Henry III and that she came to England after the death of her father. What little we know about their marriage, is that they produced two daughters but lived apart from 1271, with the marriage being annulled in 1285. Legend then fills in the details. The story tells us that Alice fell in love with another man, possibly named Gruffudd or Tew and was unfaithful. Her lover confessed to a monk about the affair and the monk told de Clare. Her lover, in his anger, killed the monk. De Clare then killed the lover and sent his wife back to France, where she died soon after of a broken heart.

Bungalow Heaven in Pasadena is one of many iconic Cali hotspots for our crafty faves because a lot of our country’s west coast neighborhood development was happening at the height of the style's popularity 100 years ago.
California's climate is perfect for the Craftsman Bungalow, especially the large porches and ample windows. This amazing home can be found on El Centro Street in South Pasadena with latest updates and design done by the historical curators at the design and building firm of Nott and Associates in Pasadena. Tough to beat the curb appeal of these homes.

The Sears kit Craftsman Bungalow was a quality home in countless ways, but in a very compact package. Usually 1,008 to 1200 square-feet of house, and yet it had a myriad of fine features such as wainscoting topped with plate-rail in the dining room, beamed ceilings in the living room, with bookcase colonnades between the dining and living rooms. Cabinetry in the colonnades and built-in-bookcases by the fireplace featured leaded-glass doors.
In 1919, they averaged about $1,250 delivered by rail. Paying local tradesmen to build would cost about that much in addition too. Not bad for that cool pad!

Craftsman Bungalows were primarily inspired by the work of two architect brothers — Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene — who worked together in Pasadena, California, at the turn of the 20th century. The Greene bros were influenced by the poppy English Arts and Crafts movement at the time. The natural cool style was said to be a direct reaction the Industrial Revolution and the foofy (my word) Victorian age. Their effort was more to promote the work of craftsmen and the handmade over the machine made frill.
The earliest examples are in Southern California, but Craftsman became the most popular style of small house throughout the country from about 1905 through the 1920s.
There is certainly something distinctively American about this style. Outside there are details galore but inside, there's a simple, wide-open layout that makes the most of typically limited square footage. This one is uber rad.
