El MACACO 💸 Las monedas más usadas durante la colonia fueron los «Macacos», que consistían en piezas de plata de forma no definida y que fueron acuñadas en Perú o México. En su mayoría eran cortadas con tenazas y figuraban un grabado de las columnas de Hércules con la inscripción Plus Ultra. Su valor nominal era menos importante que su peso en metal, es decir, no tenían un valor absolutamente definido. Aun después de la independencia de los países centroamericanos, el macaco siguió en circulación, siendo oficializado el 9 de julio de [1856]. #sivar #historia #elsalvador #elsalvadorphotos #sivarmedia #MadeInSivar #history #vsco #vscohub #vscopro #instasivar #amazingsivar

A big thank you to @wellcomecollection for spreading the word about #everyhorseremembered - a movement to honour working equines past and present. WW1 Horse Gas Mask. Horses were used extensively during the First World War, being called on to perform tasks such as pulling ambulances full of wounded men or moving heavy artillery pieces. Gas warfare was first used by the German Army in 1915 – although quite soon after both sides were using it. Protective equipment was slowly developed for both men and horses. This gas mask was designed to fit over the horse’s nose and was found at a German equipment dump in Rozières, France, in August 1918 by the British Army Over 8 million horses, donkeys and mules died in World War I. This year the @thebrookecharity - an international charity that protects and improves the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules - marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the war with its campaign #EveryHorseRemembered. Go take a look at some moving accounts from history.⠀ ⠀ #WellcomeCollection #Horses #GasMask #Warfare #WW1Horses #WWI #WorldWar1 #WW1 #FirstWorldWar #History #War #1918 #HorsesInWar #horsesofinstagram

This Industrial Revolution-aged structure is the reason why its neighborhood is called Toronto's Distillery District. I took this picture of the Gooderham & Woorts distillery in 1990, long before it became a trendy re-development. As you can see, even the railway tracks were still in place around it. And the industry itself was still functioning as it was designed to do in the 1800s. In a later post, I'll share a picture or two of the scale model I constructed of this building using plaster molds. . . . . . #toronto #distillery #gooderhamandworts #industrialage #industrialarchitecture #industrialrevolution #railway #railroad #railroadtracks #railways #stonework #stoneworks #masonry #industries #heritage #historicstructures #historicbuilding #history #downbythetracks #ianwilsonauthor #canadianbranchline #steamera #downtown #distillerydistrict

La #TorreDeBelem es uno de los íconos más importantes de #Lisboa 🇵🇹 Fue construida en el Siglo XVI en la antigua playa de Restelo, desde donde partían todas las expediciones hacia otros continentes. Su principal función era la de servir como fortaleza para proteger la entrada al puerto, pero luego se volvió un centro recaudador de impuestos y una cárcel. En la actualidad es Patrimonio de la Humanidad, declarado por la UNESCO en 1983. #portugal #lisbom #belem #trip #travel #traveler #pic #photo #tower #portuguese #history #instagram #instalike @wonderlust.portugal @visitportugal @visiting.lisbon @lisbonworld

This book is intense. I read a lot about war and a lot of descriptions of what happens to the men at war back during this time(ww1) and it doesn't bother me. But this describes those same things happen to kids and women at there home and it for some reason it makes me shudder. I definitely recommend this to anyone anywhere. #war #history #ww1 #halifax #books #recommend
