Period House in East Suffolk, England. Built in the late 1400s.  You can still see inside the walls the wooden beams from the half-timber (or timber framing) method of building! So cool!
To create framed structures, early carpenters used heavy timber jointed together with various joint methods. They filled the spaces between the timbers with wattle and daub (mud or animal dung that fills woven branches or slats), loam (sand, silt and clay mixture), bricks or rubble.

A 1947 Nettie Rosenstein dress photographed by Toni Frissell. I can see the Washington monument in the background, so this is obviously photographed in Washington, DC. Given the view of a lake, monument position and the marble floor, I’d say this was taken at the Jefferson Memorial.

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles. ” – Audrey Hepburn
