Re: England’s Thames Path: Kew Gardens

George G. ·
My wife Diane and I spent almost an entire day at Kew Gardens. So much natural beauty to see. We arrived from central London at the Kew Station in mid-morning and didn't leave until almost dusk. At one time our son had a possibility of being transferred to London and I recommended getting a place in the Kew Garden area for the beauty and quiet. One of my photos from Kew.

The artwork is spectacular! It's a shame that more folks don't take the time to admire its beauty and the talent needed to create such pieces. Great write-up my friend!

Re: Baseball Hall of Fame - Cooperstown, New York

Travel Rob ·
Thanks Samantha, I'd love to visit Cooperstown. When I saw Hank Aaron's boyhood home at Mobile's minor league stadium with all it's incredible baseball memorabilia, I knew I had to see the Baseball Hall of Fame one day. Thanks for showing me what to expect!

Hi Rob, it is a really cool place to visit. I had been to the Negro Hall of Fame in Kansas, but not the one in Cooperstown. It was so worth the wait! Thanks for mentioning Aaron's home in Mobile. I would like to see it someday too. Have a great weekend

January 13, 2016: Trafalgar Square. London

Samantha ·
While on a trip to London we had to stop and check out Trafalgar Square. It was really amazing, even though it was cold and we got rained on quite a bit. Lol It is an interesting little square with a lot of history. The square contains a large central area with roadways on three sides and a terrace to the north, in front of the National Gallery. The roads around the square form part of the A4, a major road running west of the City of London. The square was formerly surrounded by a...

Can't be certain, because it gets fuzzy when blown up, but the shape and proportion look right to me for a 1948 Plymouth. Anyone else?

Re: May 28, 2019: American Bison, Keystone Gallery

PHeymont ·
Here's a '39 for comparison. The grille change to all-horizontal took place around '41, the last year of full production. Note that the '39's fenders still show some stylistic reminder of when they were not integrated into the body shape. The remnant of running board disappeared before the first post-war designs. I picked 1948, but it could have been a year or two earlier, but definitely not pre-war.

I'm curious, why do you call the river "Moskva" & the city "Moscow"?
Comment

Re: Along the Moskva River to Gorky Park

Jonathan L ·
Portmoresby, that is a good question. I guess it because, all of the maps and tourist websites use Moskva for the river, but if I said I was in the city of Moskva, most English speakers would have no idea where I was.

Thanks for a fascinating rabbit hole for me to fall into! Two best gleanings so far: the meaningful gendering of Metro announcements, and the existence of a Moscow duplicate of Boston's 'Make Way for Ducklings' sculpture group!
