Cordoba - Through the arches

Cordoba - Through the arches

FOR SALE- The Cathedral and former Great Mosque of Córdoba, in ecclesiastical terms the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, and known by the inhabitants of Córdoba as the Mosque–Cathedral, is today a World Heritage Site and the cathedral of the Diocese of Córdoba. It is located in the Andalusian city of Córdoba, Spain. The building is most notable for its arcaded hypostyle hall, with 856 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite. These were made from pieces of the Roman temple which had occupied the site previously, as well as other destroyed Roman buildings, such as the Mérida amphitheatre. The double arches were a new introduction to architecture, permitting higher ceilings than would otherwise be possible with relatively low columns.

Cowes JS White Hammerhead Crane

Cowes JS White Hammerhead Crane

SOLD - The 80 ton 'hammerhead' crane was ordered by Cowes shipbuilder J.S. White in 1911 and came into use the following year. It was the key element of a new fitting-out quay, as part of White's increased capacity for the production of naval warships. The crane was designed by Babcock and Wilcox and engineered at their Renfrew plant, but it was the only giant cantilever crane they ever built. This type of crane would eventually dominate the skyline of shipyards throughout the world. The Cowes structure falls within the first decade of their development and is probably the earliest example in existence beyond the Clyde.

The Daring class has strict one design rules, including a sail replacement programme, whereby owners can only purchase new sails at specific times, and a hull scrubbing programme, allowing the boats, which are kept afloat, to only be cleaned once every two weeks throughout the racing season.
