    Babylon, Baghdad, Lake Tharthar: what and where was the real Babylon?

    Upon a detailed inspection of the Lake Tharthar immediately found something that looked like part of the fortress of the star. I do not believe that the road was built in this form just like that, most likely once there was a moat.

    1906: Seattle Central Library. Demolished in 1957.

    Judging by the difference in ground levels in the photos of 1907 and 1914, this building was excavated. I wonder if the concrete road and tram tracks were also underground? or were they just built?

    1897: Wuppertal Suspension Electric Railway by Eugen Langen

    I also noticed that not a single person raised their head to look at the train. This is very strange. Even if you often see this miracle, you still have to involuntarily look. Maybe I just didn't notice it, but I've watched this video many times. I found this video in color. the quality is...

    1897: Wuppertal Suspension Electric Railway by Eugen Langen

    Yes. I'm sorry - I haven't seen this topic.)))))))))) about the video. I am not an expert, but it seems to me that the speed (or rather the frequency) of the movement of the train and people are completely different. That is, people move somehow jerkily, but the camera on the car shoots quite...

    1897: Wuppertal Suspension Electric Railway by Eugen Langen

    This railway reminded me of another miracle of technology, depicted in the drawing. A completely insane and irrational invention.... or was it just clumsily redone?.....

    Catacombs of Paris, Mud Flood Victims and Unidentified Dead. Reset?

    If you look closely, there are skulls everywhere. It turns out that the new dead are buried where the skeletons of people lie chaotically

    19th Century Paving Tiles in Russia

    These are photos from my old album of Moscow. In this photo, there is no trace of the old coating. It's not even a paving stone. It feels like broken stone has been thrown under my feet. And in the second photo, you can see the tram rails. Very interesting. after all, the first tram will go...

    19th Century Noah's Arks: Whaleback Steamer Ships

    Personally, what strikes me most about these boats is how the metal sheets were connected to each other. I didn't see any rivets. But welding, according to the officials, has not yet been invented. And the most interesting thing is what were these cases treated with? I'm in shock.

    The State of Georgia #1: Atlanta or Decatur, that is the question.

    Hello! Did you notice the ship on the map of the city of Savannah in the lower right corner? This is something incredible. It's a ship with a steam engine and a monitor shape. And this is 1818 ???
