After the emancipation of the serfs in 1861 by Tsar Alexander II of Russia, there emerged a new peasant working class in Russia’s industrializing cities. Prior to emancipation no working class could be established because serfs working in the cities to supplement their incomes retained their ties to the land and their masters. Although the working conditions in the cities were horrific, they were only employed for short periods of time and returned to their village when their work was complete or it was time to resume agricultural work.

This gorgeous, abandoned building in Union, Illinois, was, up until the 1950s, part of a rail system called the Illinois Traction System that carried passengers around central and southern Illinois! You could catch the train in Union and take it to Peoria, Springfield, or St Louis, with many stops in between. Today, you can see this station in Union (or go to Mackinaw, Illinois, and see a nearly identical building that has been preserved and restored thanks to the efforts of their historical society). As of today, we've been to every town north of Interstate 74!

Sunday jaunt through history, in just a few blocks. Old American Stock Exchange building, with beautiful Art Deco transportation details from 1931 addition; the bells of Trinity Church, current (3rd!) version completed 1846; a Mr. James Purdy, departed this world in 1794 (with a rather ghoulish [also probably important] message for the living); 20 Exchange Place, completed 1931; who knew there was a Vietnam War memorial down here? (1985)—silent and somber and heart-rending; mosaic above entrance to International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation building, completed 1929—a company with very checkered past (and that’s a huge understatement). Not too shabby. #sundaysarethebest #nycarchitecture #artdeco #fidi #historynerd #iloveyounewyork

Right, so.
Last year we went to St. David's cathedral and I remembered seeing a lot of old graffiti, but we were kind of in a rush. So this time, I strolled through much more slowly and took pictures of as much medieval (and beyond) graffiti I could find carved into the stone pillars, walls, and even statues and coffins!
Collage, bottom right: A fan of this one, since "RL" evidently thought their initials were worthy of a little decorative arch.
More collage notes: "John" carved his name right on the resting stone body of a bishop who was laid to rest there. Found the initials of my boyfriend, and an old time "FU" #naughty!
Second pic: Found my future initials!
Third pic: My personal favorite out of all the ones I found. "Thomas Williams 1679" - sorry, had to cut off the "Thomas".

@Regranned from @the_amateur_historian - This famous photo taken by UPI photographer Arthur Sasse depicts the legendary scientist Albert Einstein as he humorously sticks out his tongue for the camera. Image taken at Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey. March 14th 1951. Einstein was at Princeton to celebrate his 72nd birthday that day and attended an event in his honor. While walking with Dr. Frank Aydelotte and his wife back to their car, a group of reporters proceeded to follow the three and tried to get shots of Einstein himself. Sasse had let the crowd of photographers get their shots and disperse before he moved in to get some of his own, and when he walked up close to the car he said: "Ya, Professor, smile for your birthday picture, ya?" Einstein agreed, but he thought that Sasse wouldn't be fast enough to get the exact shot he wanted, so Einstein quickly stuck out his tongue just as the photo was taken and he quickly turned his head away, all in an effort to possibly try and ruin the photo. The editors at UPI debated on whether to use the picture or not, and it took a large conference of UPI officials to actually get the picture okayed. Einstein had already had a reputation for being somewhat bizarre, so the photo absolutely captured that reputation enough to become one of the most popular pictures of Albert Einstein ever taken. Ironically, Einstein himself reportedly loved the photograph very much, and he even loved it enough to crop it and put it on greeting cards that he would send to personal friends. He also even requested UPI to give him nine copies for personal use, and after they were sent to him he signed one of the photographs for another reporter. That specific signed photograph ended up selling for $74,324 dollars at an auction on June 19th 2009.

@Regranned from @the_amateur_historian - Three unidentified British soldiers participating in the Battle of the Ancre against German forces are shown eating some hot rations together during a lull in the fighting. Somewhere near Ancre, within the Ancre Valley, France. Circa October 1916.

Our history Odyssey curriculum finds us in the midst of the US civil war. I picked up some library books. Thought my daughter would like hearing about womens' role in the war. Well, as you can see it's on my night stand. I'm previewing to decide which chapters to read with her... or that's my story. #homeschool #history #historynerd #civilwar

I’ve cleared out a lot of clutter, both in our condo & in my professional space. ✨ This is setting up more time for the upcoming launch of my all female #history writers project. As they say, rid your life of stagnant energy so that new things can appear. 💥 It must be working.

“It was a party like you wouldn't believe. Go to a different show every night, then pick up a bunch of women afterwards, go party the next night. Go to the lounges, see Fats Domino, Della Reese, Jackie Wilson, the Four Aces, the Dominoes – all the old acts. We'd stay there and never sleep, we were all taking pills just so we could keep up with each other." –Joe Esposito

Soviet anti-tank rifleman, armed with 14.5mm PTRS-41 anti-tank rifles, setup a defensive position overlooking a river.
The PTRS-41 was massive. It weighed 46 pounds and had a four foot long barrel, totaling its length to seven feet. The weapon was fed by a five-round magazine, similar to the stamped steel “enbloc” clip used by the American M1 Garand rifle. It loaded upward into the magazine, but a single round could also be loaded and fired manually from the top of the receiver. Its semiautomatic capabilities were a considerable advantage, as it often took multiple hits from its 14.5mm rounds to disable armored vehicles. Ultimately, it was prone to jamming and wasn't as successful as the simpler (single shot) PTRD anti-tank rifle.
