Since the early 1900s, Birmingham has had a significant Greek community, and in 1906, a group of Greek immigrants raised enough funds to acquire a church.
However, their current cathedral wasn't built until 1949.
Being featured in Birmingham's Festival of Arts in the late 1960s led to the start of an annual Greek Food Festival in the 1970s to showcase Greek cuisine, crafts, music, dance, and hospitality.
42 years later, it's a central event in the city, and 1 of my favorites to attend (and not just because of the baklava and pastichio)! Opa!

A great example of Oriental Mission architecture, the residence of W.L. Tubbs, on the southwest corner of Spurgeon and 9th streets in Santa Ana sadly only this photo exist of the structure but it's flare and character is incredibly compelling.

Spotted another horse trough donated by Annis & George Bills - this one was in Johnson Street #annandale in front of the primary school. It has a plaque outlining the history of the trough donations along with its proposed removal in the 1970s until it was saved by members of the Annandale Association #may_day_2017📷#localhistory#billstroughs

This book, as a gift to me and authored by Carol Asher, was hand delivered by her today, the first day of the Jewish New Year!
Currently there's a photo exhibit depicting the resettlement history of the #RussianJewish families to #AmeniaNY and #SharonCT based on Carol's findings in the #synagogue here in Amenia.
I'm eager to learn about the rich history of this thriving community, which overcame harsh obstacles to flourish into a valuable and compelling existence in our area.

• Just booked not one but two visits to @chatsworthofficial 🙌 I was determined to see the House Style exhibit before it ended and thus will be doing next month! Also, Christmas at Chatsworth tickets are on sale now and we go every year so I booked that too for November. Sooo, two months of Chatsworth beauty for me. Let's face it, I adore the place. 🍂#devonshires#chatsworth#localhistory#history#book#booklover#bookstagram#bookblogger#bibliophile#met_createchange

Nelson Street, King’s Lynn.
Thought I’d have a go at some old school style black and white. Used an app to add some grain as well, going for the 35mm look.

The Union Academy, Doylestown's first school. Located at the corner of East Court and Broad Streets in Doylestown Borough, this school was erected in 1804. In 1889, the building was demolished to make way for construction of a new school. Stone from the Academy was used for the foundation of the new school. Uriah Dubois, who managed the school, resided next to the Academy from 1807-1808. DuBois also became the first minister of the Presbyterian Church and is buried just outside the front door of the church. #Doylestown#localhistory

The mid week blat round , well more of a pootle round really but hey we were out there ! Shots of Baconsthrpe Castle, Blakeney and Cley Mill forming a sweet loop ! The old ruined gatehouse of the castle of 1450 is the relic of the heydon family whose boom n bust fortune came from the wool trade. Parts of the Castle were soon sold as building materials to raise cash. However the gatehouse was lived in until 1920 apparently. Anymore useless old shite you might wanna know about do get in touch (or not obviously) 😁#viewsfrommybike#cycling#cyclinglife#gravelbike#hardtailmtb#singletrack#rackingupthemiles#outdoors#outdoorliving#outdoorsisfree#getoutside#freshair#active#activeliving#cardio#mountainbike#mountainbikelife#pedal#norfolkcycling#tribenorfolk#blakeney#cley#norfolk#thegreatoutdoors#ukscene#instabicycle#history#coastal#norfolkcoast#localhistory
