Scavenger of Styles - #11 Inside & #12 Outside
Outing to Union Station
Been visiting ...
OK a bit of history is in order: Ft Osage was built in 1806 and construction was started by Lewis and Clark (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Osage for more details). It stands on a bluff about 100 feet above the Missouri River. The buildings shown in the photo are reconstructions maintained by Jackson County Parks and Recreation Dept and does not include the entire palisade, 9 houses, a well and cistern that made up the final fort and was home to infantry. As to the smoke stack, that's a coal-fired power station Power Plant . Nearby is three-span through truss railroad bridge that was built in 1887-88 that is still in use for freight and Amtrak. Ft Scott on the other hand housed cavalry, is not a reconstruction, and is part of the US National Monument system.
Challenge: Bi-Weekly Challenge: Windows
starting: April 13,2008
Windows we all love them... We all have them! They frame the view from the outside world and provide a frame for the inside world. They are a perfect vehicle for reflecting light and projecting light. Let's celebrate them.
Thank you Swat for your great arts and crafts challenge and for electing me for this one. For the next challenge , I nominate lefteyeblind, our Ms Pam.
Good luck everyone, i look forward to viewing your windows. Blessings, MsJudi
