Times Square NY in snow, ca 1920, Jessie Tarbox Beals (American, 1871 - 1942).

An Italian immigrant family on New York’s Lower East Side, ca. 1910, photographed by Jessie Tarbox Beals (American, 1870-1942). Beals was an American photographer, the first published female photojournalist in the United States and the first female night photographer.
The family shown here is living in an “old-law” tenement. The apartments in these buildings were not required to have ventilation in each room. The window facing the kitchen appears to look into a smaller room or closet. More than 100,000 immigrants lived in rear apartments (behind other buildings) that were wholly unfit for human habitation. In a room not thirteen feet either way slept twelve men and women, two or three in bunks set in a sort of alcove, the rest on the floor. In the summer months 3-4 babies would suffocate in the airless tenements every night.

"Girl in Red Kimono" (1893), by George Hendrik Breitner (Dutch, 1857-1923). Breitner was a painter and photographer of the Amsterdam impressionist school. Breitner and van Gogh met and worked together for a time. They did not like each other’s work. Van Gogh said that Breitner’s work looked like mouldy wallpaper. Brietner said van Gogh’s work looked like art for Eskimos, and that "he has stolen it all from Millet and others."

Prince Carl Philip is currently on a multinational maritime exercise in the Northern Coasts until the 11 of September. The exercise is being held in Finland; the Prince is part of the team that monitors, manages, coordinates and prioritizes activities for approximately 30 subordinate vessels. 

Over 13 other countries are part of this exercise; there are 55 ships and 2,800 people. The exercise takes place in the Gulf of Bothnia, northern Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland. Its goal is to be able to operate in narrow and shallow waters with large groups of vessels where one must pay close attention to civilian shipping in the area; and is part of EU and NATO initiative.
