kampalasibizimbe #Repost from @soulofwander - I spent my Saturday walking around the city taking photographs of old buildings and places that still exist today, for a pictorial in a magazine. This building, formally known as Patel Press, opposite post office used to be Uganda Printers, and has been standing since 1928! It's amazing how amidst all the change, some things stay the same. #myuganda256 #history #kampala #PhotographyProject #DearPhotograph #ThenAndNow #1928 #lamudiugchallenge #latergram

benmorales The Reynolds-Secor House, also known as Mansion View, was built on Collingwood Avenue in Toledo’s Old West End in 1887. The 10,000 square foot mansion with ten bedrooms and eight baths was designed by well-known local architect Edward Fallis for Charles Reynolds, a successful banker and merchant. With beautiful 13-ft ceilings, stained-glass, Italian marble, and feathered slate, no cost was spared in its construction. It took an onsite crew four years to complete, and two years just to carve all the wood. In 1904, the house was purchased by Jay K. Secor, president of the Citizens Ice & Cold Storage Co. and remained in the Secor family for the next 40 years. In the 1950s it was converted into 15 apartments and a motel was added on, but was reverted back to its original state in 80’s and has since been added to the National Register of Historic Places. More recently, the property was owned by the Old West End Association, who until recently, made it into a bed and breakfast as well as opened to the public for events and gatherings. Prominent guests in its early years included Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the legendary Harry Houdini.
In the amazing historic photo shown here, taken around 1910, we see one of Jay Secor’s ice delivery carriages. It’s hard to imagine a time when ice and refrigeration was not the readily available commodity it is today. The Reynolds-Secor House still appears to be in magnificent shape for being nearly 130 years old, and I hope that its future owners will preserve and cherish it for many generations to come.

4mamabear @dearphotograph, 35 years later it is a different truck that pulls Dad's boat, but what matters is that he still takes us fishing! Happy 75th birthday! -Brian 2w

felix_the_kai 一向好少做主動

我竟以寶麗來打開話題

和陌生人聊天的感覺其實很好

我們應該是在研究興趣與工作之間的事

突然問我有沒有筆,我以為想攞我簽名⋯

叫我相背寫點東西,我寫了「為夢想加油!」⋯好老土😑
