Part 2 Of Historic Photos Request

So here are the requirements for historic sites in ROMANIARUSSIA and SCOTLANDI will send the final Picture Call tomorrow, for historic sites inSWEDEN SWITZERLAND UKRAINE and WALESYou will now have received our Calls for AUSTRIA BELARUS BELGIUM BOSNIA BULGARIA CROATIA CZECH REPUBLIC DENMARK ENGLAND FINLAND FRANCE GERMANY GREECE HUNGARY IRELAND ITALY MALTA NETHERLANDS NORWAY POLAND PORTUGAL SERBIA SLOVAKIA SPAIN If you joined fotoLibra after the earlier Picture Calls were sent out you can always check back using the RSS feed off the fotoLibra Home Page. Full details here.The publisher has definite priorities with the lists – “A List” is the most important, followed by “B List” then “C List”. We’ll be sending the client their lightboxes in that order.Members are likely to receive approximately £30 / $60 / €44 per picture purchased (Platinum Members will receive more).After these calls will come a series of smaller Picture Calls covering the rest of the world.Some locations have been requested in previous Picture Calls. For example you may find some overlap between the recent list for Buildings and the list for Historic Sites, but please treat this new list as entirely new, even if it means you’re submitting the same image twice. This book will be very different – Buildings explores the architectural features of the buildings, while Historic Sites looks at the historical, political and social contexts of the buildings, and the publisher may need different images for the two books as part of that. Effectively this means the same image may have two different Code Keywords.ROMANIA (Keyword: HISTRO) "A" LIST Bran / Dracula’s Castle / 1377 / alleged Vlad the Impaler connections, residence of Queen Marie from 1920Brasov / The Black Church / 1384 / in the old walled townBucharest / Mogosoaia Palace / 1698 / tumultuous history, home of the Bibesco family from the late 19th century, tombs in the church on the estateBucharest / Snagov Monastery, Church and Palace / 1380s / Vlad the Impaler added fortifications and a prison, and is buried there: later Ceausescu conectionsConstanta / Histria archeological site / 7th century BC / ruins of Greek cityMoldavia / Putna Monastery / 1466 / pilgrimage site, built by Stephen the Great, who is buried thereSinaia / Peles Castle / 1875 / palace of King Carol I, with Queen Marie’s Pelisor Palace close byRUSSIA (Keyword: HISTRU) "A" LIST Astrakhan / The Astrakhan Kremlin / 1582 / gates, towers, churchesKirillov / Belozersky Monastery / founded 1397 / ‘the heart of Old Muscovy’Moscow / Bolshoi Theatre / 1825 / Moscow / St Basil’s Cathedral / c1555 / in Red Square, built by Ivan the TerribleMoscow / The Lenin Mausoleum / 1930 / in Red SquareMoscow / The Moscow Metro / 1930s / spectacular stationsNovgorod / St Sophia’s Cathedral / 1050 / Russia’s oldest building?: and the 1862 Russian Millennium MonumentPushkin (Tsarskoye Selo) / The Catherine Palace / rebuilt 1752 / summer palace of the Tsars: site of the fabled amber room: Pushkin associationsSt Petersburg / Alexander Nevsky Monastery / 1710 / St Petersburg / Mariinsky Theatre / 1783 / key role in Russian ballet and opera historySt Petersburg / Menshikov Palace / early 18th century / palace of the city’s first governorSt Petersburg / Pavlovsk Palace / 1796 / Tsar Paul I’s summer palaceSt Petersburg / Peter and Paul Fortress / 1703 / and Peter the Great’s log cabinSt Petersburg / Pushkin’s House, / 1837 / where he died that yearSt Petersburg / Smolny Institute / 1764 / school for young ladies, founded by Catherine the Great: the Bolshevik headquarters in 1917St Petersburg / The Great Palace, Petrodvorets / 1714 / built for Peter the GreatSt Petersburg / The Winter Palace / 1754 / and the abortive 1905 revolutionStaraya Russa, near Novgorod / Dostoievsky’s House / 1872 / the author’s summer homeVladivostok / Vladivostok Station / 1905 / eastern terminus of the Trans Siberian RailwaySCOTLAND (Keyword: HISTSC) "A" LIST Stirling / Bannockburn battlefield / 1314 / where Robert the Bruce defeated the EnglishSCOTLAND "B" LIST Aberdeenshire / Balmoral / 1855 / Victoria and Albert’s home in ScotlandAlloway / Burns Cottage / 1759 / birthplace and childhood home of Robert BurnsDundee / Discovery, / 1900 / Captain Scott’s ship to the AntarcticEdinburgh / Edinburgh Castle / c1130 / history goes back to 600 or before: now home to the Stone of DestinyEdinburgh / Forth Bridges / 1883 / railway and road bridgesEdinburgh / Palace of Holyroodhouse / 1503 / and Holyrood Abbey, founded 1128Forfar / Glamis Castle / 1372 / the Queen Mother’s family home, Macbeth linksGlasgow / Hampden Park / 1903 / world’s largest football stadium until 1950Glenfinnan / Glenfinnan Monument / 1815 / on the spot where the Young Pretender landed 1745Innerleithen / Traquair / 1478 / Borders family mansion with Mary, Queen of Scots and Jacobite associationsInveraray / Inveraray Castle / rebuilt 1745 / ancestral seat of the CampbellsInverness / Culloden battlefield / 1746 / scene of the Young Pretender’s defeatIona / Iona / AD563 / abbey founded by St Columba, burial place of early Scots kings, including MacbethIsle of Shetland / Jarlshof / c2000BC / prehistoric and Norse settlementIsle of Skye / Dunvegan Castle / c1200 / romantic home of the Clan McLeod chiefsLiddesdale / Hermitage Castle / by 1300 / grim Borders keep with Mary, Queen of Scots linkLinlithgow / Linlithgow Palace / 1425 / palace of James IV and the Stewart dynastyMelrose / Abbotsford / 1822 / Sir Walter Scott’s home to his death there in 1832Melrose / Melrose Abbey / 1136 / ruined Cistercian abbey where Robert the Bruce’s heart was buriedNorth Berwick / Tantallon Castle / c1374 / Red Douglas strongholdSt Andrews / Royal & Ancient Golf Club / 1754 / golf’s spiritual home, Old Course goes back to the 1400s, club founded 1754Stirling / Stirling Castle / mainly from 1370 / principal Stewart royal strongholdUpload data:1.
