Something about this one makes me all Romantic. Maybe it's just the color and contrast, but listening to the right music (e.g. 'The Lark Ascending') definitely helps me "get" that old Romantic utopia of the 19th-century agrarian landed gentry.

Kinda trippy to think photography was almost a century old by this point and yet we still think of this as a vintage picture

The first digital photograph, scanned into SEAC in 1957 at a whopping 1 bit per pixel at a 176x176 resolution. Think about that for a moment, the digital image on your screen (albeit upscaled, converted to different image file types and copied a billion times over) is 61 years old! In 2057 it will be a century old!

Page doesn't exist...

 

Anyway, they're all pale compared to Palace of the Soviets in Moscow, the architectural embodiment of triumph of communism and the headquarter for future world government. Projected height - 415 meterss; the height of the Lenin's statue on the roof wass over 100 mters. Construction has already begun, but cancelled after the German invasion in 1941. Otherwise it would be one of modern world wonders. But construction of this monstruosity would become the serious burden for Soviet economy, so I'm rather glad that it exist only in pictures:
