City walks in Vienna.
Coffee has had many uses through history, from spiritual intoxicant to erotic stimulant. Did you know that it also sparked a social revolution in Britain in the 17th century? Diarist Samuel Pepys often wrote of the coffee houses which became centres of political and social discussion for the men of 17th-century London. By 1675 there were more than 3,000 coffee houses in England alone. The drink even inspired ‘The Women’s Petition Against Coffee’, in which wives argued that their husbands were forever absent from the home and family, and all for “a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water”. This photo shows a debate in a coffee house in Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London, 1688.

Do not read: The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is a wall in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with JohnLennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. In 1988, the wall was a source of irritation for the communist regime of Gustáv Husák. Young Czechs wrote grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led to a clash between hundreds of students and security police on the nearby Charles Bridge. The movement these students followed was described as "Lennonism" and Czech authorities described these people variously as alcoholics, mentally deranged, sociopathic, and agents of Western capitalism. The wall continuously undergoes change and the original portrait of Lennon is long lost under layers of new paint. Even when the wall was repainted by some authorities, by the next day it was again full of poems and flowers. Today, the wall represents a symbol of global ideals such as love and peace. Prague is so amazing, a must-visit in your lifetime! So much beauty and architecture to see and history to learn. And its cheaper relative to other Western Europe city!  You must include it on your travel list now! #prague #johnlennonwall #historybuff #history #easterneurope #praguetravel #travelingfriends #friendswhotravel #worldwar2 #capitalismvscommunism #musttravel #traveltheworld

Men of the Durham Light Infantry, 49th (West Riding) Division inspect a knocked-out German Tiger tank during Operation 'Epsom', 28 June 1944. . Operation Epsom, also known as the First Battle of the Odon, was a British offensive during the Second World War that took place between 26 and 30 June 1944, during the Battle of Normandy. The offensive was intended to conquer the city of Caen occupied by the Germans, an important Allied objective in the early stages of the invasion of Northwestern Europe. . This Tiger tank shows, even after its defeat, still an impressive appearance. .

The dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral (undamaged) stands out among the flames and smoke of surrounding buildings during heavy attacks of the German Luftwaffe on December 29, 1940 in London, England. - 1940, summer and fall.  German and British air forces clashed in the skies over the United Kingdom, locked in the largest sustained bombing campaign to that date. Victory for the Luftwaffe in the air battle would have exposed Great Britain to invasion by the German army, which was then in control of the ports of France only a few miles away across the English Channel. In the event, the battle was won by the Royal Air Force Fighter Command, whose victory not only blocked the possibility of invasion but also created the conditions for Great Britain’s survival, for the extension of the war, and for the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany. • • • #ww2 #history #40s #summer #fall #bombing #germany #england #luftwaffe #france #plane #aircraft #airforce #nazi #blackandwhite #historybuff #invasion #histories #ww1 #worldwar2

The Great Fire of Rome July 19th, AD 64 - The #greatfire of #rome was an urban fire in July of the year AD 64. It caused widespread devastation in the city on 19 July, before being brought under control after six days. - - History has blamed #nero, the emperor for the disaster, implying that he started the fire so that he could bypass the senate and rebuild Rome to his liking.  Nero instead blamed the Christians for it and started the first organized persecution of them through the whole empire. - - - #roman#romantimes#romanhistory#romans#romanlegion#romanage#historybuff#historylover#historylove#historynerd#ancienthistory#roma#orgoglioitaliano #ancientheroes#ginnasio#realheroes#classico#classicisti#otd#liceoclassico#epocaromana#romanbattle#romani #dailyhistory#dailyhistorypic#historylesson#dailyhistorylesson
