I’m no historian but: >At the time of the death of King François I in 1547, the work had cost 444,070 livres And… > The livre poids de marc or livre de Paris was equivalent to about 489.5 grams I’m not sure if the
I’m not quite sure, I don’t think so though. Wikipedia says the following: >The dam was designed by Coyne et Bellier* and construction began in 1955. The reservoir began to fill in 1960, the power station was operational in 1961 and the dam complete
Great submission! The mountains are spot-on, and you did an awesome job on lighting–I can’t even tell those are edges! But I would turn up the saturation for the roof a little so it’s believable; you can almost tell it used to be black
It probably had them. At one time, the USA had dual tracks running almost everywhere. The expense of maintaining them, coupled with the boom of over-the-road trucking, led to the railroads tearing them up in the 70s. Now that the rail lines are bursting
>If you just let any ship vanish or appear in the same lock segment as the bridge is in, the water level would change, causing more or less load on the bridge. sorry, explain it to me please? it’s not a closed area, it’s
The color scheme is reminiscent of those dated looking buildings from around the 50s Basically the shape of the building looks striking now, but once that wears out the building will start to look worse
When they filmed the RoboCop TV series around Toronto back in the 1990s, I don’t know if they used Robarts but they definitely used [Mississauga’s central library and city hall](http://www.emporis.com/images/show/664849-Large.jpg) to represent some kind of futuristic buildings.
That’s not what karma whoring means at all. This is most definitely a user who saw a cool photograph and wanted to share it to another subreddit. If you don’t want other people sharing your photographs (or if you don’t want them getting imaginary
As a resident of the North Bay (non-SF side of the Golden Gate Bridge), I’d like to add that at one time the lower deck had been planned to be used for the BART train connection to Marin and possibly Sonoma counties. But the
Close, but a bit different. The credit (I believe HK$2 or US$0.26) is applied to the Octopus card (stored value card that is used for buses, subway (MTR), and purchases at many stores), but is only a credit for the next time you take
it crosses the river [Wiese](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiese). So i would assume the general need for a bridge and a need to only a small inclination(4%) since it’s the Autobahn.
You can’t see down at all, you can’t even see past the horizon line while driving across it. There are barriers to prevent people from freaking out about the height and obviously torretain vehicles, too.
It’s not too far away from Tbilisi (Capital of Georgia). 4 hours by car or 45 minutes by airplane. I don’t know if Batumi airport has any international flights, but you can go Tbilisi tickets are affordable and the city is stunning (and inexpensive).
A basketweave interchange is commonly found on highways using a collector/express system or long collector/distributor lanes. In a basketweave, one highway is able to interchange with itself, allowing traffic traveling in the same direction to switch between carriageways through the use of flyover/under ramps
Las Setas. The construction seemed to take an age and the locals were more than skeptical, but the result are spectacular to me; and the view from the top and treatment of ruins below are both perfect. Even the local taxi drivers are starting

yeah it’d be more sketchy if it was totally rigid. did you know that if you commit suicide off one side, then its bristol city polices’ job to clear you up, and if you jump off the other then its the somerset and avon
I’ve been a few times because I live in a neighboring city…. it doesn’t look nearly as nice when it is swarming with people. I guess I never noticed how nice the place is because I have always rushed through it.
Very few bikes here look alike. There’s so much choice in new bikes and there are so many older bikes that you’d be hard pressed to find the same model/color/year as yours. And even then, your saddle is probably higher, your handlebars angled differently,
Designed by an American firm and built by VN companies, it’s a quite modern and safe structure. It breathes fire every night–doesn’t seem at all unsafe when I’ve seen it. Several stories up, nothing remotely close to it. Wish I could’ve found a pic
Sometimes I wish the engineers got as much recognition as the architects (or ANY recognition). Awesome feat from everyone involved.
I’m not sure when this picture was taken, but all but one of the approach spans are gone and the main arch span is pretty far along right now as well.

This was prior to standards barring such construction. Also, interstates in many locales are slightly upgraded versions of legacy US route alignments. For example, a less severe S-curve used to exist in Laurel, MS, where US 11 was upgraded to interstate standards for I-59.
