Georges, Alireza, اعجاز احمد مغل, Lloret, and henu, thanks for letting me share my visit to Potala Palace with all of you. This must be one of the most famous, and holiest, places in Tibet. Greetings to the Pyrénées (Spain), Iran, Pakistan, and Deutschland (Germany) from Laura in Los Angeles.
Not how it would be done today.
Thanks, Corey! Regards, Brian
FAVORITE AND LIKE
This is the Gorham Campus Art Gallery, which was built in 1821 as the Free Meetinghouse, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In front is the Civil War Memorial.
It was a private airfield... then they used it for horses, although it hasn't been used at all for quite some time.
It is still owned by the Sturtevant family...along with that big white farm house across the street on the hill.
Thank you Caroline. The patterns serve no purpose other than decoration. It seems to be mostly British thatched buildings that have the patterns and they seem to be a fairly new idea. Traditional roofs have a plain ridge with a flush finish. The Dutch mostly use a block ridge often with a flower box along the apex.
I hope this helps.
Not often you see them made of brick.
A nice place to visit, but wouldn't want to live there.
