The horse-drawn tram (horsecar) was an early form of public rail transport that developed out of industrial haulage routes that had long been in existence, and from the omnibus routes that first ran on public streets in the 1820s, using the newly improved iron or steel rail or 'tramway'.

Reset: Catacombs of Paris, Mud Flood Victims and Unidentified Dead

  • 7,568
  • 24
It appears that we do not have any cemeteries out there to account for the dead as they relate to various historical time frames. Sure we could go with cremations, and some other modes of riddance of the dead bodies. At the same time we pay the due respect to our dead, and we have places to show...

Polar Freezers and the Global Warming

  • 10,657
  • 47
I intend to offer a hypothesis that we have two humongous freezers installed within North and South polar regions. In my opinion, they could have been installed by the previous society to free the Earth of the Great Biblical Flood waters. This thread requires the reader to know contents of the...

USA: Transported Medieval Castles, Monasteries and other buildings

Allegedly, in the early 1900s, America was so infatuated with the Medieval architecture, it had tens of castles, churches and monasteries moved from Europe to the United States. While the motivations behind moving buildings across the Atlantic Ocean may vary, one thing is certain, this is not...

The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is a large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (originally Francisco de Paula del Villar was commissioned for the job, but he quit). Gaudí's work on the building is part of a UNESCO World...

1878 Panorama of San Francisco from California Street Hill

  • 19,049
  • 107
This city is not 100% abandoned. Its population in 1880 was supposed to be 234 thousand people. This high quality of image allowed me to spot like may be 50 people, and about as many horse buggies. Yet, when you fully comprehend the size of this "30 y.o." city, 234k will sound unreasonable. It...

1898 and 1899: Trans-Mississippi and Greater America Expositions in Omaha

  • 4,158
  • 14
Here we have another one of those Expos allegedly made out of horse hair and plaster. I suggest we look into this Expo, analyze available construction photographs, the crowds, the exhibits, etc. May be, in the process, we could develop some sort of an opinion on what this next "build to destroy"...

Patent Law Enforcement in the Past

  • 1,366
  • 12
What kind of society did they really have to allow for proper enforcement of the Patent Law? From my “narrative compliant” understanding of those times, I cannot imagine any patent enforcement being anywhere on the list of priorities back than. Yet, it had to be, according to the above wiki...

Tartarian Language and Alphabet

May be at some point we will be able to locate the Tartarian alphabet, and examples of their writing. I do not mean the Tatar Language mentioned on wikipedia. The language I'm talking about does appear to be omitted from the narrative compliant history.

19th Century Prisons: what were they before they became prisons?

With barely any people in the mid 19th century US, why were these prisons so big? Who were the clients? The original title of the suggested video is "Tartarian Prisons: Not the Original Use". The author analyzes beautiful structures, which somehow ended up serving as prisons. Some of the...

Some 50 miles south-east of this town, in the valley of the Nian-chu, stands one of the oldest towns of Tibet, Gyantse, advantageously situated for trade with India. Carpets and cloth are made in this spot, widely renowned for its immense suburban (temple), which is five stories high, and has...

Weather Vanes vs. Air Travel, and may be Flags

  • 2,812
  • 9
In my opinion the Weather Vanes mounted on top of the older, or "ancient" buildings had practical, rather than decorative purposes. To be exact, it was to show the direction of the wind to the pilots of the ancient airships. I understand that it probably sounds way too bananas crazy for some...

Movie: Metropolis (1927), who was it really made by?

  • 4,283
  • 20
YouTube channel UAP put out an interesting analysis of this movie. I guess it is being suggested that the movie was made using the video footage created by the Civilization of the Builders, Society “X”, Tartary type culture... Then, certain “proof” was created to make it look like it was...

After the fires which swept through Chicago, Holland, and Peshtigo in late 1871, Singapore was almost completely deforested supplying the three towns with lumber for rebuilding. Without the protective tree cover, the winds and sands coming off Lake Michigan quickly eroded the town into ruins and...

Pre-1872 Cerbere and Belier: what are these ships?

  • 1,513

I meant to start this thread as soon as I had a chance to observe these two ironclads docked in Cherbourg, France. This photo was allegedly taken in 1882, if we were to believe the backside of the photograph, which could actually be a postcard. It's hard to say if any rivets were used...
