The Naze Tower, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex

The Naze Tower at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. An historic landmark, it was built on the cliffs in 1721 by Trinity House as a navigation mark to guide shipping. The 86-feet tall octagonal tower has played an important part in maritime history and is Grade II* listed, as the only building of its type and era in the UK. Seen here in the days when the only communication to shipping approaching Harwich was by semaphore signalling or a display of flags.
circa 1900

Don LuA­s I bridge and Muralha Fernandina in Porto

Don LuA­s I bridge and Muralha Fernandina (Fernandina Wall) in Porto.The Dom LuA­s I Bridge is a double-decked metal arch bridge that spans the Douro River between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal. At the time of construction its span of 172 m was the longest of its type in the world.The government held a competition for the construction of a metallic bridge over the Douro River on a site that was adjacent to an existing bridge that it would replace. TA©ophile Seyrig had engineered the D. Maria Pia Bridge project nearby, whilst working as a partner of Gustave Eiffel. He now took sole responsibility for the new, major LuA­s I Bridge. The construction was begun in 1881 and the bridge opened on 31 October 1886 (the upper deck; the lower deck opened in 1887).Fernandinas Walls is the name by which it was known to medieval waist walls of Porto, in Portugal, of which only small parts have survived to the present day.Cerca Nova and Gothic Wall are other designations that apply to Fernandinas Walls but which, although scientifically more correct, are less currents.During the XIV century, Porto had a great urban expansion out of its initial core of the hill of Pena Ventosa protected by Old Fence, built on the original Roman wall.The city feels thus need of a larger space than the walled Old Fence.By the middle of this century, even in the time of D. Afonso IV, it began to be built a new ring of walls that was almost completed around 1370. The fact that the work was only completed in the reign of Ferdinand explains that it is commonly called Ferdinand Wall.'Last its military importance, the walls began to be demolished gradually from the second half of the eighteenth century to make way for new streets, squares and buildings. Most of the wall has been demolished in the late nineteenth century. The surviving sections of the walls Fernandinas were classified as national monuments in 1926
