Drawn to my roots in Shetland. This is a hap, a traditional art that reminds me of waves on the ocean and absolutely inspires me! Read more about it here👇🏽 #Repost @tove_om with @get_repost ・・・ T h e C r o f t h o u s e M u s e u m | It's impossible not to fall in love with the beautiful Shetland knitting traditions. Locally spun wool from the islands' four legged population is turned into the most beautiful fair isle patterns, yokes, and even knitted lace. I'm so impressed by the extent to which these traditional crafts are kept alive by the islanders. _ This is a traditional 'hap', an everyday shawl that has been worn as a warm piece of outerwear by women in Shetland over the centuries. In this picture, the hap is mounted on a wooden frame, a hap stretcher or board, to be stretched into shape. _ In it’s more common form a garter square was knit first and stitches were picked up to knit an old-shale lace border around, using different colours of wool, often scraps in different colours, to create interest. Haps were not originally knitted in fine wool as this was kept for knitted items which were sold. These practical shawls were folded in half to make a triangle and worn over the shoulders, crossed over the front and the ends tied at the back. _ I find haps a particularly beautiful part of the Shetland knitting tradition. Besides having been used to keep Shetland women warm, there's also far more delicate haps, knitted in thin lace weight wool, traditionally used as Christening shawls. There are even 'wedding ring shawls', knitted in such fine lace wool they can be drawn through a wedding ring. The lace shawls were often white and had far more intricate patterns as they were commonly made as gifts or for sale. _ Please take a look at the beautiful accounts of @donnasmithdesigns and @ellalcgordon , a couple of very talented Shetlanders who do a wonderful job of promoting this beautiful tradition by keeping it alive and updated. _ #hap #shetlandhap #traditionalhap #thecrofthousemuseum #crofthouse #crofthoose #boddam #dunrossness #shetlandmuseumandarchives #mainland #shetland #northernisles #scotland #bonniescotland #loves_scotland #instascotland #historic

⠀⠀ Isparta'nın 1204 yılında III. Kılıç Arslan döneminde feth edilmesinin ardından, Atabey (agros) Anadolu Selçuklu Kumandanlarından Gazi Ertokuş Bey tarafından bizanslılardan alınmış. ___⠀ Eski ismiyle Agros'un alınmasının ardından I. Alaaddin Keykubat zamanında, Selçuklu uç Kumandanı Ertokuş Bey tarafından 1224 yılında yaptırılmış. ___⠀ Yapısal plan olarak: Kapalı avlulu, dış ve iç avlu, türbe ve odalardan oluşuyor. Odalarının üzerleri kubbeli olan medrese, tek katlı, tek eyvanlı ve revaklı bir medresedir. Eyvan türünde bir taç kapısı bulunuyor. Bu taç kapıdan kapalı bir avluya giriliyor. Avlu içerisinde dört mermer sütunun taşıdığı yarım kemerler ile desteklenen kubbesi vardır. Güneyinde altı, Kuzeyinde beş adet oda bulunan medresenin, iç avlusunun ortasında küçük havuz bulunuyor. Girişin karşısında mescid görevini üstlenen ana eyvan ve üçlü türbe girişleri vardır. Medresenin yapımında kullanılan taşlar Atabey ve Bayat'taki tarihi kalıntılardan getirilmiş. ___⠀ Zamanında Astronomi ve Tıp ilmi yapılan Atabey Ertokuş Medresesi, Tarihi dokusuyla sizi içine çekiyor. Mimari açıdan Anadolu Selçuklu sanatının çok fazla rastlanılamayacak örneklerinden birisi. Farklı atmosferiyle o döneme kadar gidip geri dönüyorsunuz... #history #historic #historia #selçuklu #tarih #medrese #travelphotography #anatolia #kadrajimdan #ig_turkey

Normandie bölgesinde yer alan bu görkemli şato; Seine nehri ve bölgenin kalbi Rouen’u korumak için 1196’da İngiltere Kralı ve Normandie Dükü Richard Lionheart’ın girişimiyle rekor sürede inşa edilmiş. Bence Château-Gaillard kadar tepesinden izlenen Andelys kasabası da insanı bir o kadar büyülüyor. 1862 yılında, Tarihi Anıt olarak tanımlanan şato okuduğum kadarı ile özellikle yüz yıl savaşları sırasında Fransız-İngiliz rekabetinin simgesi olarak gösterilmektedir. #france #normandie #chateau #chateaugaillard #village #magnifique #history #historic #historical #travel #şato #igers #fransa #france 🇫🇷 #travelgram #tarih #tb #tbt

On this day in 1916, the tank appeared for the first time in battle in form of the British "Mark I" . Their first operational use was in September at Flers-Courcelette, but this first attempt was a near disaster. Most of the tanks broke down on their way, others bogged down in the mud. However, despite the lack of training of their crews, some managed to reach their designated objective, if only too few. Only 59 were part of this attack, most of them being captured afterwards by the Germans. The first issues quickly arrived at the War Office. When they appeared however through the fog, they had an uncanny psychological effect on the German troops, which fled their trenches, leaving their machine guns. The distant roar and clinging of the tracks, and later the slow-moving masses emerging from the fog which resembled nothing built yet were enough. But their ability to take punishment and return fire was compelled by the fact the Germans were caught completely unaware of their existance. A real surprise achieved by the well-guarded secret behind the name that stuck ever since, the “tank” .

Julie Andrews photographed by Cecil Beaton in 1959. She will always be my aspiration, my inspiration, and quite frankly just one of the most beautiful women inside and out that I think there is! I love her so much and this picture is so lovely! Back before her big screen work, but she was already so heavily regarded in the world of theatre. A true beauty, a true talent! #history #historic #historical #historyinpictures #historicalpics #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhitephotography #vintage #vintagephotography #julieandrews #damejulieandrews #classic #classicactress #oldhollywood #classichollywood #hollywoodglam #1950s #broadway #broadwayactress

🕰 Then➡️Now: 271 W 72nd St 🕰 . Originally the Spencer Aldrich House . By the time Spencer Aldrich and his wife chose the 50-foot long building plot at the northeast corner of West 72nd Street and West End Avenue the neighborhood had already begun filling with stylish homes.  But none would outdo the Adrich mansion. Gilbert Schellenger sat down in 1895 to design the house—a Romanesque fantasy of turrets, gables, arches and chimneys that commanded the corner.  Four stories high, it was completed in 1897 and stretched nearly three times the width of a conventional townhouse.  Schellenger used a variety of materials to create a masterwork.  A turn-of-the-century sketch shows the entrance—a deep, arched portico set on clustered pillars above a side-turned stoop—squarely centered within the West End Avenue elevation.  Nevertheless, the house took the address of No. 271 West 72nd Street.

Drove South to the historic town of Syracusa which was once a powerhouse under Greek rule until the death of Hiero II, when the Romans conquered the city. The famous Greek Mathematician Archimedes died in the Great Battle of Syracuse defending against the Romans.. #walkinginthestepsofhistory #historic #syracusa #sicily

My daughter catching the last of the sun in New Brighton yesterday. We love it there even though it isn't your typical cute seaside town. You can see that it must have looked stunning in edwardian times the heyday of the British seaside, not to forget later times.
