History of the City of Spokane and Spokane Country, Washington, Vol. 3 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from History of the City of Spokane and Spokane Country, Washington, Vol. 3: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time Starting out in life with less opportunity or equipment than the average American boy, but evidently possessed of an optimism and determination which enabled him to triumph over many adverse situations and discouragements, Robert Edmund Strahorn has followed the lead of his opportunities, doing as best he could anything that came to hand, and creating and seizing legitimate advantages as they have arisen. He has never hesitated to take a forward step when the way was open. Fortunate in possessing a degree of earnestness and frankness that have inspired confidence in others, the simple weight of his character and ability have carried him into important relations with large interests and he is now the president of several important railway and other corporations with headquarters in Spokane. The North Coast Railroad project especially owes its inception and prosecution to him and is constituting a most important element in business activity throughout the northwest. Mr. Strahorn was born in Center county, Pennsylvania, May 15, 1852. The family is of Scotch-Irish origin and the ancestry in America is traced back to the great-grandfather of our subject, who in colonial days came from Scotland to the new world and afterward aided in obtaining American liberty in the Revolutionary war. He continued a resident of Union county, Pennsylvania, until his death and his son Samuel Strahorn, grandfather of our subject, also made his home in that county. The father, Thomas F. Strahorn, there born and reared, learned the trades of a millwright and machinist and in 1856 removed from Center county, Pennsylvania, to Freeport, Illinois, and nine years later became a resident of Sedalia, Missouri. In 1878 he crossed the Rockies, following in the footsteps of his son who had preceded in 1870, and after residing for a time in Idaho and Montana he became a resident of Los Angeles, California, where he passed away in 1883. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Rebecca Emmert, was born in Center county, Pennsylvania, and was of Dutch lineage, a daughter of John Emmert, who had come to this country from Switzerland. The death of Mrs. Strahorn occurred in 1861. Robert E. Strahorn spent the first four years of his life in the state of his nativity and was then taken by his parents to northern Illinois, where the period of his youth was passed in village and farm life where his work was of the hardest. His educational privileges were very limited, as he attended school only until ten years of age. Private reading and study, however, constantly broadened his knowledge and the studious habits of his youth have made him a man of wide general information. In the school of experience, too, he learned many valuable lessons which have proven of significant worth in his advancement in the business world.

History of Stoke City F.C. Alphascript Publishing

It is claimed that the history of Stoke City F.C., an English association football club based in Stoke-on-Trent, began when Stoke Ramblers were formed in 1863. However, as the Official Site states, "In 1863 the story goes that former pupils of the Charterhouse School formed a football club while apprentices at the North Staffordshire Railway works in Stoke. But little evidence exists of any matches taking place." The first actual reference to Stoke Ramblers is made five years later. To quote the Official Site again, "Five years later a report in The Field magazine of September 1868 made things much clearer. It stated a new Association Football club had been formed in Stoke-on-Trent...and its founder member was ex-Charterhouse School pupil Henry Almond. So it's possible that soccer had been played in the area during the previous five years, although in terms of official records the first game played by Almond's team, known as Stoke Ramblers and consisting largely of railway employees, was in October 1868." There appears to be no good reason to link this team to the hypothetical earlier club.

Mad Love has been acknowledged an undisputed classic of the surrealist movement since its first publication in France in 1937. Its adulation of love as both mystery and revelation places it in the most abiding of literary traditions, but its stormy history and technical difficulty have prevented it from being translated into English until now. "There has never been any forbidden fruit. Only temptation is divine," writes Andre Breton, leader of the surrealists in Paris in the 1920s and '30s. Mad Love is dedicated to defying "the widespread opinion that love wears out, like the diamond, in its own dust." Celebrating breton's own love and lover, the book unveils the marvelous in everyday encounters and the hidden depths of ordinary things. "Translator Caws provides a masterly introduction and annotation," wrote the reviewer for the Library Journal. Mary Ann Caws, Distinguished Professor of French, English, and Comparative Literature at Hunter College and the Graduate School of the City University of New York, is the author or translator of more than twenty books.

The history of the city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, is a testament to the strength of the people that call it home. Following World War II, the community struggled to rise above adversity in the economy and to establish civil rights for all. In the second volume of history for this stalwart Pennsylvania city, Randy Whittle shows how Johnstown pulled together, even after the devastation of a flood in 1936 that wrought massive damage throughout the community. Johnstown is a true American city, as strong as the steel that is forged in its famous mills. From Johnstown's enormous contribution in steel and coal to the war effort to its recovery after the monumental flood of 1977, Whittle's book shows how the people of Johnstown made it the modern city it is today.

50 Underwear Questions: A Bare-All History Annick Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"You are what you wear (underneath)! " Most of us take our underwear for granted, but throughout history our undies have revealed a lot about who we are (king or peasant), how we work (in fields or factories) or the shapes we value (manly calves or tiny waists). The third book in Annick's 50 Questions series tackles questions such as "What's that smell?" (Medieval Europeans thought bathing made you sick) and "Did boxers arrive in the Nick of time?" (When blue jean model Nick Kamen stepped out of his denims to reveal his boxers, sales of the underwear soared.) Underwear has played a role in ancient crusades, city sieges and even modern economic predictions. Obviously, it's time to uncover the facts about everything from loincloths and T-shirts to bloomers and lingerie. Young readers will laugh their pants off at the accompanying cartoons and get the bare, but fascinating, facts about the history of our unmentionables.

Winner of the Western History Association's 2009 Hal K. Rothman AwardFinalist in the Western Writers of America Spur Award for the Western Nonfiction Contemporary category (2008).The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the world's most beautiful cities. Despite a population of 7 million people, it is more greensward than asphalt jungle, more open space than hardscape. A vast quilt of countryside is tucked into the folds of the metropolis, stitched from fields, farms and woodlands, mines, creeks, and wetlands. In "The Country in the City," Richard Walker tells the story of how the jigsaw geography of this greenbelt has been set into place.The Bay Area's civic landscape has been fought over acre by acre, an arduous process requiring popular mobilization, political will, and hard work. Its most cherished environments--Mount Tamalpais, Napa Valley, San Francisco Bay, Point Reyes, Mount Diablo, the Pacific coast--have engendered some of the fiercest environmental battles in the country and have made the region a leader in green ideas and organizations.This book tells how the Bay Area got its green grove: from the stirrings of conservation in the time of John Muir to origins of the recreational parks and coastal preserves in the early twentieth century, from the fight to stop bay fill and control suburban growth after the Second World War to securing conservation easements and stopping toxic pollution in our times. Here, modern environmentalism first became a mass political movement in the 1960s, with the sudden blooming of the Sierra Club and Save the Bay, and it remains a global center of environmentalism to this day.Green values have been a pillar of Bay Area life and politics for more than a century. It is an environmentalism grounded in local places and personal concerns, close to the heart of the city. Yet this vision of what a city should be has always been informed by liberal, even utopian, ideas of nature, planning, government, and democracy. In the end, green is one of the primary colors in the flag of the Left Coast, where green enthusiasms, like open space, are built into the fabric of urban life.Written in a lively and accessible style, "The Country in the City" will be of interest to general readers and environmental activists. At the same time, it speaks to fundamental debates in environmental history, urban planning, and geography. Richard A. Walker is professor of geography and chair of the California Studies Center at the University of California, Berkeley. His publications include "The New Social Economy: Reworking the Division of Labor" and "The Conquest of Bread: 150 Years of California Agribusiness.""Richard Walker has written a sparkling history of the greening of the Bay Area that does much more than tell a fascinating untold story. In the tradition of Raymond Williams, "The Country in the City" throws the whole relationship between city and country into a fresh light, one that is not only bracing but which illuminates a path forward for green politics everywhere." -- Michael Pollan, author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "The Botany of Desire""In dark times for those who care about the fate of the earth, here's some much needed sunlight from California: an inspiring and comprehensive account of green organizing in the Bay Area from John Muir to Carl Anthony and Urban Habitat." -- Mike Davis, author of "Planet of Slums" and "In Praise of Barbarians""Richard Walker's "The Country in the City" describes how fifty years of suburban developers, greenbelt alliances, grape-growers, dairy farmers, software startups, inner-city anti-toxics coalitions and others have shaped the San Francisco Bay Area as a patchwork of developed, reshaped, and protected space. This remarkable new classic also challenges not only conventional versions of the relationship between city and country, but the very definition of these two kinds of places." -- Rebecca Solnit, native San Franciscan and author of "A Field Guide to Getting Lost""This story has never been fully told, and Richard Walker, who lived many of the battles while teaching the next generation of warriors at UC Berkeley, has finally pulled the story together. There aren't many academic works from which a local activist can profitably learn-this is one of them." -- Carl Pope, Executive Director, Sierra Club"Walker has done in this book what essentially has never before been attempted by any other scholar for any other major American city: he has researched, analyzed, and narrated the evolving environmental politics of San Francisco from their origins in the nineteenth century to their explosive growth in the decades following the Second World War, right down to the present. . . . A first-rate piece of scholarship." -- from the Foreword by William Cronon"Walker has done a fantastic job of making both historical and contemporary urban environmental relationships engaging. The style is eloquent, pithy, and sometimes poetic. The Country in the City is an important contribution to urban environmental geography." -- Lisa Benton-Short, author of "The Presidio, from Army Post to National Park "

Chicago has many iconic buildings, but perhaps none as instantly recognizable as Bertrand Goldberg's Marina City, commonly referred to as the "corncob buildings." Occupying an entire city block, the mixed-use riverside complex consists of two cylindrical sixty-five-story residential towers, a saddle-shaped auditorium, and a midrise office building. Each tower contains more than four hundred apartments and a continuous, upward-spiraling ramp of parking spaces. Built in 1964 at a moment when Chicagoans were fleeing to the suburbs, the hugely ambitious project was architect Goldberg's attempt to save the city of Chicago. In Marina City, authors Igor Marjanovic and Katerina Redi Ray present the first history of this architectural landmark. Featuring newly available archive photographs and drawings, this unique building's biography contains lively essays that explore not only the buildings architectural achievements, but also the ingenious marketing campaign and complex network of political partnerships necessary to realize Goldberg's vision. As thearchitect's self-penned glossy brochures detailed, Marina City offered residents a self-contained world that included a theater, restaurant, bowling alley, health club, ice-skating rink, grocery store, bank, and parking garage. It is no wonder that before it was finished 2,500 applications had been submitted to rent 896 apartments. The culmination of thirty years of thought and development, Marina City became an instantaneous icon that made Bertrand Goldberg the first Chicago architect to achieve superstar status with one project. From the financing to the structural engineering, this one-of-kind volume fills in missing chapters of modern architecture, urban politics, and labor history.

This is an archaeological, architectural and historical study of one of the largest complexes of buildings in the medieval City of London, but one which is largely unknown and of which only two fragments survive above ground today. It is the fifth volume in a series on the monasteries of London. Holy Trinity Priory, Aldgate, was the first religious house to be established inside the walls of London after the Norman Conquest, in 11078; one of the earliest Augustinian houses to be established in England; and the first to be dissolved, in 1532. By 1200 the precinct north of Leadenhall Street and just inside Aldgate was filled with imposing stone buildings, including a large and architecturally impressive church which was the burial place of two of the children of King Stephen in the middle of the 12th century. Londons first mayor, Henry FitzAilwin, was buried in the entrance to the chapter house. In the 16th century the monastery was owned by the Duke of Norfolk, second only to Queen Elizabeth in power, who was executed in 1572 for his part in plots surrounding Mary Queen of Scots. Several modern excavations of 1977 to 1990, many antiquarian drawings, and a ground-floor and a first-floor plan of all the monastery buildings made around 1585 are brought together here for the first time, to reconstruct a fully illustrated and detailed history and archaeology of the priory site. Not only can all the major periods of the priorys building history be suggested and compared with other religious houses in medieval London, but the excavations produced their own surprises, such as evidence of the beginning of the tin-glazed or delftware pottery industry in the 1590s, and a unique Jewish plate of the 18th century.

In the New York of the 1970s, in the wake of Stonewall and in the midst of economic collapse, you might find the likes of Jasper Johns and William Burroughs at the next cocktail party, and you were as likely to be caught arguing Marx at the New York City Ballet as cruising for sex in the warehouses and parked trucks along the Hudson. This is the New York that Edmund White portrays in "City Boy": a place of enormous intrigue and artistic tumult. Combining the no-holds-barred confession and yearning of "A Boy's Own Story" with the easy erudition and sense of place of "The Flaneur", this is the story of White's years in 1970s New York, bouncing from intellectual encounters with Susan Sontag and Harold Brodkey to erotic entanglements downtown to the burgeoning gay scene of artists and writers. It's a moving, candid, brilliant portrait of a time and place, full of encounters with famous names and cultural icons. Critical Praise: '"City Boy" seems effortless in its tone; it is seamless, wise, funny and charming. The New York described in the book is history now, but history that has made an essential difference to the way we live now. Edmund White evokes the main players in the culture of the city, all of whom he knew, with clarity and with brilliantly-chosen detail and sense of the moment' - Colm Toibin.

Sioux City Illustrated Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Sioux City Illustrated: The Pioneer Period and an Authentic Sketch of the Sioux City of Today; Illustrated The History of Sioux City may be conveniently considered in two distinct epochs, viz.: the period during which it was connected with the movement of trade and settlement which pierced the Northwest, following the waterway of the Missouri River; and the later period during which its growth has been determined by the comprehensive transfer of population, effected by the building of railroads westwardly. The former epoch began with the arrival, in June, 1856, of the first steamboat freighted for Sioux City, which, that year, grew to be a town of 400 inhabitants; it may he said to close with the completion of the first railroad, in March, 1868. All that goes before - and it would make a chapter of romantic story - relates to the time of pure adventure in the northwest, rather than to its substantial development; it includes the day of exploration, of the French voyager, of the trader and the trapper. The first account of the visit of white men to Woodbury County is that of the famous exploring expedition of Lewis and Clark, in 1804. This is immortalized by the names they gave to localities, and one spot is sacred as the last resting place of the first of their number who fell during the expedition. On the 20th of August, 1804, Sergt. Charles Floyd died and was buried by his comrades on a high bluff overlooking the Missouri River. The grave is still to be seen on the bluff which bears his name, and his memory has a more enduring record in the Floyd River, which, passing through the city limits of Sioux City, empties into the Missouri two miles above this bluff. In the summer of 1848, a single pioneer, William Thompson, settled at Floyd's Bluff, his brother and another man joining him in the fall. Next year he laid out a town there, calling it Thompsonville. Thompson's cabin was the sole improvement, but on the organization of the county, in 1853, the villa was made the county seat, and it was a sort of post for Indian traders for some years. Not a vestige of Thompsonville remains. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
