ismael-sarepta: Iranian battle-mask, from the Safavid Dynasty (16th-18th c.) (Shahada inscribed on the top) (Scanned by me. Don’t remember the source.) I always thought this mask would make for some rather epic inspiration for a Middle-Eastern cyber-/steam-punk thing.
Ground Stable Barns (1910s to 1950s) After 1910 government health regulations for the production and handling of fluid milk required new barn designs. These barns housed cows on a washable concrete floor in steel pipe stanchions at ground level. The gambrel roof made an ample hayloft...long rows of small windows gave light to the stable area. A small, milk house was usually attached to the building.
