...yet, #libraries and their readers have routinely engaged in lengthy battles to defend the ability for libraries to fulfill their mission and serve the #publicgood.

We’ve been exploring the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of the nation’s historic properties worthy of preservation. We’ve looked at the earliest buildings up through the 1880s. Now onto the 1890s: a time of architectural blossoming in Milwaukee:
larger, more elaborate structures – and Milwaukee’s first skyscraper, the Pabst Building, 1899, Solon Spencer Beman for Frederick Pabst (110 E. Wisconsin), razed 1980. (This one always hurts!) Photo, 1900,
The City of #Milwaukee has 209 sites on the National Register with another 72 in Milwaukee County. Both the National Historic Landmark & National Register programs are administered by the National Park Service.

Made this 4-flap enclosure for a book with loose newspaper clippings inside it. It’s a 4-flap wrapper with a pocket on one flap. Velcro tabs.

I think this was a good solution to keep all together…

Here’s the box when you open the flap… Image
Here’s the folded preservation photocopy of the clippings Image

On the banks of Vennar River, in the districts of Thanjavur, lies a small village called Kallaperumbur, home to two temples of antiquity - Brihannayaki Sametha Kailasanathar (A Shiva Temple) and the Varadaraja Perumal (A Vishnu Temple). (1/6)
With the inscriptions found in the dilapidated gopuram of the Shiva Temple (Image 2), we can trace back this temple to the period of Kulottunga Chola of the 12th /13th century. (2/6)
The Temple is a vast complex with sanctums for the Parivara Daivatas including Nruthi, Vinayagar, Subhramnaya and a separate sanctum outside the main complex for the Goddess. A small niche on the outer walls of the Maha Mandapa has a sculpture of Natraja and Parvati. (3/6)

Depuis janvier 2020, #RENOIR travaille avec l’association Inter-Parcs du #MassifCentral (#IPAMAC) à l’accompagnement de 8 #ParcsNaturels du périmètre Massif dans la construction et la mise en œuvre de leurs politiques de "#territorialisation" de la #préservation de l'#obscurité. Image
La préservation de l’environnement #nocturne est désormais une préoccupation de l’aménagement de l’espace. Elle oblige à de nvx. arbitrages, à la définition de nvx. référentiels d’action publique conciliant les enjeux sociotechniques et environnementaux de l’éclairage artificiel. Image
La territorialisation est la démarche qui permet de mettre l’action publique en adéquation avec les systèmes de #valeurs et de représentations liés aux dimensions écologique, environnementale mais également historique, sociale, économique, politique et symbolique des territoires. Image

The real heroes who deserve to be celebrated are the skilled crafts communities integral to #preservation #conservation of #heritage #sites #monuments and #museums across the world. These are photos from the #NalandaUniversity, a #UNESCO #WorldHeritageSite in #Bihar in 2013
Here, when we had gone on a research trip as the Bihar Museum #design team, we had found #craftsmen making bricks and sculptures to help in the restoration of the 1500 year old site. We thought this was extremely imp as the process was similar ImageImageImageImage
I had suggested that this process be filmed and displayed as part of ‘continuing traditions’ in the new Museum. Thankfully, this was accepted and a film has been made 😊
Thank you the real heroes, we salute you for your skill and hard work, not just today but everyday 🙏🏽

So @PuckBrandGaming got us a shared Christmas gift for us at McKay’s in Greensboro, NC: a full size reel-to-reel player! Now we can archive my grandad’s old TV/radio recordings! 1/6 @Foone @textfiles @lazygamereviews
He was an Army Air Corps SSgt specializing in RADAR/Radio Tech. Once home he figured out how to wire his reel-to-reel into the TV so my grandmother wouldn’t miss her stories if she had to work! Audio only but better than nothing since NO RERUNS back then. 2/6
George B. Hawkins, my namesake for my middle name (the B.) was technically my STEP-grandpa. My biological grandfather Gerald Torian (my first namesake) died at 37 of his 3rd heart attack (WWII Marine in the Pacific same as GB, it’s why it took 3 to kill him...) 3/6
