This 1937 Nuremberg Rally shows Albert Speer’s “Cathedral of Light” effect. Spotlights were placed around the rally grounds pointed up. The effect was apparently stunning. When Speer first proposed the idea, the military opposed it, since it required the use of about every available spotlight. Speer’s counter-argument was that if the rest of the world saw such a profligate use of spotlights at the party rally, it would assume Germany had lots of them. by rhonda

Germany. Church Service in Cologne Cathedral, 1945 An American Army chaplain leads a group of kneeling soldiers (still armed with rifles) in prayer in Germany's famous Cologne Cathedral. This Margaret Bourke-White photograph captures the first service in the cathedral since it was heavily bombed by the Allies a month earlier -- and for those anxiously watching the events unfolding in Europe, half a world away, suggests not only the conflict's harrowing destruction . . . by alyson

In Scotland Glamis Castle is second only to Balmoral Castle as a stop on a tour of royal residences. The current owner, the Earl of Strathmore, is the queen’s great-nephew. His family, the Lyons, has owned this Scotland castle since 1372, when it was gifted by Robert II of Scotland to Sir John Lyon. The present Earl maintains the Glamis Castle library, the royal apartments, and the sculpted grounds. by juliana

The house in which Lincoln died, at 453 (now 516) 10th Street, NW., was built by William Petersen, a tailor of Swedish descent, in 1849. It is a three-story building, with the basement only slightly below the street level. Since the house had more rooms than the family required, he rented his extra rooms to lodgers. *s* by ruby_fowler
