The Curious Case of Architects & the Monumental Works Attributed to Them

In this new series that started with “Ancient and Modern Evidence for the Perfect Alignment of Heaven and Earth Worldwide,” I am going to be focusing on subjects that I have found in my research that needed their own posts.

I have information like this scattered all over my circle alignment posts that needs to be pulled together in one place for comprehension and clarity about these subjects.

In this post, I am going to be sharing what I found when I started to drill down beneath of the surface of what we are told about the history of the architecture surrounding us, and who we are told was responsible for it.

I will start with Sir Christopher Wren (b. 1632 – d. 1723), one of the most highly acclaimed architects in English history.

On the left side of his portrait, you can see what looks like what could be the window sill…or could be the faint outlines of a building.

Let’s see if anything like this shows up in other portraits. While it could be a cool artistic technique, it could also be some kind of hidden meaning or message.

Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned after the Great Fire of London in 1666 to rebuild 51 replacement churches of 88 that were destroyed in the fire, as well as St. Paul’s Cathedral, located at the highest point in the city of London on Ludgate Hill. It was said to have been completed in 1710.

Compare the appearance of St. Paul’s Cathedral with the United States Capitol building, said to have been completed in 1800, just 17 years after the end of the American Revolutionary War in 1783.

So both of these massive buildings were built before the beginning of the Industrial Revolution? What technology existed at those times, according to the history we have been taught, would have allowed them to build like this?

There are photographs like this taken of Fleet Street, near St. Paul’s Cathedral, seen in the background. Here you have the contrast of stately architecture, horse-drawn carriages, and the very beginning of motorized transport in the early 1900s.

This is the Midland Bank Building on Ludgate Hill. It was attributed to T. F. Colcutt in 1891, for whom I can find no biographical information.

Now, on to the Crimean Peninsula in the Black Sea region, where we are told the Scots Baronial and Moorish Revival styles had been introduced in the 1820s by British architect Edward Blore (b. 1787 – d. 1879)…

…with the Vorontsov Palace in Alupka, Crimea, said to have been built between 1828 and 1846.

Blore was also said to not have any formal training in architecture – his training was in “Antiquarian Draftsmanship.” 

Here is a comparison of the architecture at Vorontsov Palace in the Crimea…

…and the Jama Masyid Mosque in Delhi, India, said to have been built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1650 and 1656.

Blore is also credited with completing John Nash’s design of Buckingham Palace in 1847. We are told he designed the Great Facade of Buckingham Palace, and that it was completed in 1850.

While one of the meanings of facade is the front of a building, another meaning is an outward appearance that is maintained to conceal a creditable reality – a pretense, guise, mask, or veil.

By Universal Law, all beings are required to inform beings of what they are doing to establish consent for what is taking place.  One of the ways negative beings get around this is by embedding it in double-meanings in our language, causing knowledge to be hidden. They tell us, but don’t tell us they are telling us.

The architect John Nash (b. 1752 – d. 1835) was considered one of the foremost architects of the Regency Era, during the Georgian era from 1714 to 1830.

There is some interesting activity going on in the right quadrant of this portrait.

It is really hard to make out what this is or might signify.

The Regency Era was the period during which the son of King George III became the Prince Regent, Prince George, and ruled as proxy when his father was deemed unfit to rule due to illness, from 1811 until he became King George IV in his own right in 1820. Here is one version of him…

… looking a lot like this portrait of Napoleon.

Here is another version of Prince George…

…that happens to look a lot like this portrait of King Kalakaua of Hawaii.

Which one was the real Prince George?

What is going on here?

I personally think hanky-panky with the original timeline of Humanity and the Earth at the beginning of the Georgian era, involving the British throne, and resulting in what we know as the British Empire.

For in-depth look at what I think took place, see my post entitled “An Explanation for What Happened to the Positive Timeline of Humanity & Associated Historical Events & Anomalies.”

Anyway, back to John Nash. He was given credit for the design of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton Beach. It was said to have been commissioned by the Prince Regent George as a seaside resort, with construction starting in 1787 and completed in 1823.

The style is described as Indo-Saracenic.

Saracen is an older term in England referring to Arabs or Muslims…as well as megalithic stones. These are Saracen, or Sarsen, stones.

Nash is also given credit for the Marble Arch in London, said to have been designed by him in 1827 as the state entrance to the ceremonial courtyard of Buckingham Palace.

An interesting aside to this is that it was said to have been moved in 1851 on the initiative of Decimus Burton (b. 1800 – d. 1881), a pupil of John Nash and urban-planner, from its original location.

Wait! The Marble Arch was moved? Seriously? Look at the size of that thing!

It is also interesting to note that only members of the royal family and the King’s troop are permitted to pass through the arch in ceremonial processions.

Could there be something very special about the Marble Arch that is unknown to the general public?

John Nash and Decimus Burton together are given credit for the Regent’s Park in London…

…and the Carlton House Terrace in London between 1827 and 1832.

The father of Decimus was James Burton (b. 1761 – d. 1837), the era’s most successful property developer and one of John Nash’s principal financiers…

…and his best known collaboration with John Nash is said to be Regent Street, a major shopping street in London’s West End.

Interestingly, I find this same curvy street design all over the place, including Edinburgh, Scotland…

…Stone Street in the Financial District of Manhattan in New York City…

…the Casbah in Old Algiers…

…in Zagreb, Croatia…

…Portland, Maine…

…and Ellicott City, Maryland, to name a few.

Before moving on, this is the tomb of James Burton, known through time as “property developer.”

He was a leading member of London High Society during the Georgian Era, and a member of the Athenaeum Club, a private members’ club founded in 1824 whose clubhouse his company was said to have built, and his son Decimus was said to have designed.

Now let’s take a look at the famous architecture attributed to the local Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi (b. 1852 – d. 1926) in Barcelona, Spain. His nickname is “God’s Architect.”

Seven of the works attributed to him have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

One of them is the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, with construction said to have begun in 1882.

The other World Heritage Sites include:

Parc Guell, said to have been built between 1900 and 1914, and opening in 1926…

…Palau Guell, a mansion Gaudi is said to have designed for the industrial tycoon Eusebi Guell between 1886 and 1888…

…Casa Mila, the last private residence said to have been designed by Gaudi, built between 1906 and 1912…

…the Casa Vicens, said to have been the first house and major architecture designed by Gaudi, right after he graduated from architectural school in 1878. It was said to have been built between 1883 and 1885.

…Casa Batllo, a building in the center of Barcelona that Gaudi is said to have redesigned in 1904…

…and the Cripta Guell, said to be an unfinished work of Gaudi’s…

…and that it was supposed to be a whole church, but the funding ran out.

Next, I want to take a look at Henry Hobson Richardson (b. 1838 – d. 1886)

I first encountered his name following the Washington, DC, circle alignment through the Upper New York Bay in Jersey City, New Jersey, with the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal attributed to him.

He was given credit for the design of Albany City Hall, said to have been built between 1880 and 1883.

Richardsonian Romanesque is described as a free revival style, incorporating 11th- and 12th-century southern French, Spanish, Italian Romanesque characteristics.

I would like to tell you a little bit about him before I show you the other architecture attributed to him.

Mr. Richardson is said to have never finished his architecture studies in Paris due to the Civil War. He also is said to have died at the age of 47, after having a prolific career in the design of mind-blowingly sophisticated and ornate buildings of heavy masonry.

Looks like there might be something else going on in the background of his portrait as well. Hard to tell.

Other works attributed to Henry Hobson Richardson include:

Trinity Church in Boston, said to have been built between 1872 and 1877…

…the Oakes Ames Memorial Hall in Easton, Massachusetts, said to have been commissioned by the children of Congressman Oakes Ames as a gift to the town of Easton, and built between 1879 and 1881…

…the Ames Free Library, right next to the Oakes Ames Memorial Hall in Easton,  said to have been commissioned by the children of Oliver Ames, Jr, after he left money in his will for the construction of a library. The building we are told took place between 1877 and 1879. The Ames Free Library is right next to the Oakes Ames Memorial Hall in Easton…

…and the Ames Monument all the way out in Wyoming, near Laramie, built between 1880 and 1882, among many others.

It was dedicated to the Ames brothers for their role in financing the Union Pacific Railroad.

Other architecture said to have been influenced by Richardsonian Romanesque include the Greenville City Hall, said to have been built in 1889, and demolished in the early 1970s…

…in the design of the Montgomery Union Station in 1898…

…and the Algiers Courthouse in the Algiers community of New Orleans, said to have been built in 1896 on the Duverje Plantation.

Frederick Law Olmsted also got around like Henry Hobson Richardson, and in some of the same places. They even collaborated on the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane in Buffalo, New York, with Olmstead credited for helping to design the facility’s grounds. It is now known as the Richardson Olmstead Complex.

Olmstead is called the “Father of Landscape Architecture,” and said to have gotten his start teaming up with Calvert Vaux in the design and creation Central Park in New York City. It is interesting to note that Olmsted was said to have been inexperienced before his work on Central Park.

In his biography, it says Olmsted created the profession of landscape architecture by working in a dry goods store; taking a year-long voyage in the China trade; and by studying surveying, engineering, chemistry, chemistry, and scientific farming. He was not a college graduate. We are told he was about to enter Yale College in 1837, but weakened eyes from sumac poisoning prevented him the usual course of study. 

In addition to Central Park in New York City, he was credited with designing the Olmsted Linear Park in the Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta…

…Boston’s Emerald Necklace of Parks starting in 1878…

…and the Grand Necklace of Parks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, also known as the Emerald Necklace, which includes Lake Park…

…and Juneau Park.

James Knox Taylor (b. 1857 – d. 1929) was the Supervising Architect of the United States Department of the Treasury between 1897 and 1912.

The at least thirty buildings he was credited with as Supervising Architect include:

The Denver Mint in 1897…

…the Philadelphia Mint (third building) in 1901…

…the Old Post office in Buffalo, New York, in 1901…

…the post office in Creston, Iowa, in 1901…

…and the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital in 1908.

The last architect I would like to introduce you to is Refugio Reyes Rivas (b. 1862 – d. 1943), said to be a self-taught architect with no formal training.

After his death was granted the title of architect by the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes. His work is considered part of the historical and architectural heritage of Aguascalientes.

Architecture in Aguascalientes attributed to Rivas, among others, includes:

The Aguascalientes Museum, said to have been built in 1903…

… the Church of the Purismima, or the Church of the Purest Conception, in 1902…

…and the Church of San Antonio, in 1908.

Could it be that one individual, or individuals in some cases, as seen throughout this post, is being given the credit in our historical narrative for the incredible creativity and skill of an ancient advanced civilization of Master Builders that has been removed from our collective awareness?

They have accomplished hiding all of this in plain sight by shaping the false narrative, educating us in it, and reinforcing it with literature, movies, plays, music, etc.

We don’t see it.  We don’t even think it because we are conditioned not to think for ourselves.

I know I have talked about some venerated cultural heroes and icons, especially Sir Christopher Wren, Frederick Law Olmsted, Antoni Gaudi, and Refugio Reyes Rivas.

The fact of the matter is that what we have been taught about in our historical narrative does not hold up under the weight of close scrutiny, like this wooden barn structure collapsing under the weight of heavy snow, which is what we have been led to believe was the only material we were capable building for much of our history.

We are faced with having been taught ludicrous fiction as fact. Ludicrous is defined as foolish, unreasonable, or so out of place as to be ridiculous.

In the next post, I will be focusing on World Fairs and Expositions.

Ancient and Modern Evidence for the Perfect Alignment of Heaven and Earth Worldwide

I am dedicating this post to feature the many, many examples I have found of symmetry, proportion and alignment around the world between archways and openings, of not only architecture, but what are called natural features as well.

“Framing” in photography refers to using elements of a scene to create a frame with your frame.

So here is an example of using tree branches to perfectly frame the moon in a photograph.

You also see the technique of framing in the capturing of the eagle in between the opening here.

What I am going to be talking about in this post, however, is what else you see here through the opening in this photograph.

I will give you many examples of this framing effect around the world, that would not occur without the existence of a perfect intentional alignment in the first place.

I will be talking about what are called natural features, as well as architecture.

I am going to start where I first learned of amazing man-made alignments in the landscape, in this case the Avebury complex in southern England.

A deep interest in learning more about ancient sacred sites and megaliths is what initially drew me into this whole subject. I was able to visit Avebury on a trip to England in 2010, but didn’t get to spend much time there. I had a travel mate who wasn’t into the same things I was.

I watched many presentations from Megalithomania Conferences, and these provided a lot of background information from other researchers that that helped me get to the level of understanding about the subjects I am sharing with you in my blog posts.

I saw this presentation by Peter Knight for the Glastonbury Megalithomania Conference in 2011…

…several years before I started putting all of this together in 2016. From watching it, I gained an important piece of the puzzle, well before I really understood what it meant.

In Peter Knight’s presentation, his focus was primarily on the West Kennet Long Barrow in the Avebury complex…

…which is a greater sacred landscape that is precise and intricate.

He talks about sight lines in his presentation, which refers to a normally unobstructed line-of-sight between and intended observer and a subject of interest.

So, for example, in this view from Windmill Hill, there is a visual connection between Windmill Hill, Silbury Hill, and the West Kennet Long Barrow seen here.

All of the sites in the complex are perfectly aligned in some manner with each other.

There are abundant solar and lunar markers in the Avebury landscape.

Here is a winter solstice sunset seen in the landscape from the entrance of the West Kennet Long Barrow…

…and is framed in the entrance of the West Kennet Long Barrow as seen from inside the Long Barrow on the solstice, when light streams through to special stones waiting at the end of the chamber.

The East Kennet Long Barrow is also framed by the entrance of the West Kennet Long Barrow.

Peter Knight provided this diagram of the sacred geometry he found contained within the long barrow’s chamber configuration.

There are also abundant astronomical markers inside the long barrow, in the chambers within.

From inside the West Kennet Long Barrow, there are places where you can see things at certain times, like the Equinox moonrise…

…and the Pleiades.

The Avebury complex is believed to be around 5,500-years-old.

The Watson Brake Lunar Mounds, near Monroe, Louisiana, are contemporaneous with Avebury. They are believed to be 5,400-years-old, and are considered the oldest earthwork mound complex in North America.

The Watson Brake mounds are located on privately-owned land, and are not available for public viewing.

Howard Crowhurst has been studying the megalithic alignments at Carnac in Brittany in France for many years, and he has been able to detail the geometric and archeoastronomical lay-out of the sites around this part of Brittany.

This is a lead-in to say that this practice of precise geometric alignments did not just happen at certain places at certain times.

It occurred worldwide-wide, from ancient times until relatively modern times!

This is the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn, New York. The Empire State Building is perfectly framed by the bridge foundation…

…and the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch in Hartford, Connecticut’s Bushnell Park, framing what is now utilized as an apartment building.

I will provide compelling physical evidence for why I believe Humanity was on a completely different, advanced time-line until relatively recently, and that time-line was hijacked. Everything we believe to be true was grafted onto the original time-line, and infrastructure falsely attributed or named.

First, let’s take a look at the deeper meanings of archways, which play an important role in the alignment process:

Initiation and ceremonies of renewal;

Sloughing off the old and moving into a new phase of life;

Structures with deep resonance;

Structurally crucial elements, capable of spanning great distances while supporting substantial weight;

And they are thought of as a gateway or threshold, a means of passing from one plane (figuratively or literally) to another. 

I am going to begin with so-called natural arches and openings showing some form of solar or lunar alignment going on.

This is Keyhole Rock at Pfeiffer Beach at Big Sur in California.

The light comes through the Keyhole arch perfectly during the winter solstice time-of-year in December and January.

Monument Rocks National Natural Landmark, otherwise known as the Chalk Pyramids, in Gove County, Kansas.

This is Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park in Utah…

…and Durdle Door, near Lulworth, England, in Dorset, during the winter solstice period.

It is on what is called the Jurassic Coast, and called a natural limestone formation.

Next are what are called natural arches or openings that perfectly frame other features.

This is at Arches National Park in Utah, where we are told there are over 2,000 natural stone arches…

…what is called the False Kiva in a remote part of Canyonlands National Park in Utah, where there is also a stone circle.

At the Garden of the Gods in Colorado…

…Amaru Muru in Peru…

…Hole in the Wall at Rialto Beach on Washington State’s Olympic National Park…

…Monument Rocks in Kansas…

…and Double Arch Trail in Kentucky.

Here are two more places that I am not sure where the photos were taken.

These examples are what I would consider ancient infrastructure, placed precisely a certain way in the landscape for the alignment heaven and earth, and are not the result of natural and random processes as we have been lead to believe.

This represents an intentional terraforming of the earth from ancient times by Master Builders to create harmony, beauty and balance based on geometric principles.

I am going to segue into the symmetry and proportion of the world’s architecture by starting with the Catalan Atlas of the Majorcan Cartographic School for information.

The Catalan Atlas is considered the most important map of the Medieval period in the Catalan language, dated to 1375. It is attributed to Master Mapmaker Cresques Abraham.

The Catalan Atlas all together has six vellum leaves, each being 26 inches, or 65 centimeters, by 20 inches, or 50 centimeters in size.

Each leaf includes the mapping of the geometric lines and shapes that you see depicted here.

I placed a modern map of Spain on the left when I was doing research for “Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 13 Madrid, Spain to Albacete, Spain,” with the city of Gijon circled, because the circle with sixteen sections depicted in the Catalan Atlas on the right appears to center on the city of Gijon. It indicates a past importance to Gijon that is no longer recognized. I, for one, had never heard of Gijon before.

The Catalan Atlas is significant for at least two reasons that I can think of off the top of my head.

First, it indicates an awareness of precise planetary alignments and gridlines that has been suppressed, and this knowledge was also lost to modern humanity.

Second, there was an importance to Majorca and this part of the world that has been lost to modern humanity. There was something very special about this part of the world in Spain and France.

Today, Majorca is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea and is what is referenced when you look up information about Majorca.

Yet, this is the Palace of the Kings of Majorca in Perpignan in southern France, so I know there is more to the story of Majorca, like the alignments, missing from the history books.

I will organize by country the sample of examples I have found around the world of symmetry, proportion and alignment in architecture.

In Spain, the Universidad Laboral de Gijon…

…in Seville…

…and the Alhambra in Grenada.

In England, Oxford University…

…Eastwell Manor…

…the Tower Bridge in London…

…and the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster, the Parliament building in London.

In France, the Eiffel Tower in Paris…

…and through the Eiffel Tower’s archway, the Ecole Militaire.

In Germany, Landshut in Bavaria.

In Hungary, at the Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest…

…where you can see the Hungarian Parliament building framed perfectly through the archways…

…in various ways.

In Italy, you see St. Peter’s Basilica at Vatican City through this archway…

…and this is at the Villa Accetta on the Ulysses Riviera between Rome and Naples.

In Ethiopia, at the Debre Libanos Monastery…

…and in Jordan, at Petra, an ancient city carved right into the rock.

In Iran, at the Blue Mosque in Isfahan.

In the United Arab Emirates, at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

In Oman, at the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat.

In India, the Taj Mahal in Agra…

…the Sardar Market in Jodhpur…

…the Qutb Minar at the Qutb Minar Complex, in Delhi, India…

…and the Iron Pillar of Delhi at the same complex.

It is famous for the rust-resistant composition of metals used in its construction. It is said to have been made 1,600 years ago.

In the country of Georgia, at the Motsameta Monastery near Kutaisi…

…and in Chechnya, the Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque in the capital city of Grozny.

In China, at the Summer Palace in Beijing…

…and in Indonesia, at the Baiturraman Grand Mosque in Banda Aceh.

Off the coast of Brazil, the Morro do Pico as seen from the arch at the Fort Santo Antonio on the island of Fernando de Noronha…

…and in Mexico, at the Hospicio Cabanas in Guadalajara.

In the United States, the Memorial Church at Stanford University in California…

…in Louisiana, the Jefferson Memorial and the Old Jefferson Parish Courthouse in Gretna…

…and in Florida, at Rollins College in Winter Park.

I don’t know where this picture was taken, but there certainly appears to be a solar alignment occurring in the center of these arches.

The Ancient Advanced Moorish Civilization that is missing from our collective awareness was all about Harmony, Balance, Beauty, Sacred Geometry and Unity with each other and the Universe, and connecting with One’s Higher Self, Source, Universal Self, whatever word you choose.

It was a a civilization where each Being knew it was Sovereign, and yet an integral part of the whole collective.  It was all about aligning Heaven and Earth in the fullest expression of Human Potential that there has ever been here on Earth. 

I will leave you with this picture of what happens at the Temple of Angkor Wat on the equinox, the time of year when the sun crosses the plane of the Earth’s equator, and day and night are of equal length.

Circle Alignments on the Planet Washington, DC – Part 27 Charlotte, North Carolina to Washington, DC

In the last post, I tracked the alignment from Athens, Georgia, the home of the flagship campus of the University of Georgia, through Central, a small railroad town in South Carolina; to Greenville, the largest city in Greenville County, South Carolina, and its county seat.

Next on the alignment is Charlotte,the largest city in North Carolina, and the county seat of Mecklenberg County.

One of its nicknames is “The Queen City.”

Charlotte was named for Princess Charlotte of Mecklenberg-Strelitz, a small north German duchy in the Holy Roman Empire, who had become Queen-Consort of Great Britain and Ireland upon her marriage to King George III in 1761. Both of these portraits of Queen Charlotte can be found on the internet…

…as can these of King George III, with a portrait like the one on the right being far more commonplace.

A historical white wash may be difficult to get one’s head around based on what we have been taught, but evidence is there when you start looking.

Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who ruled from 1500 to 1558, is another example, with the similar of the facial structure between the two portraits, the tilt of the chins, and the similar clothing.

Why would one portrait become the face of the rulers, and the other fade to obscurity?

Here are some examples of German Coats-of-Arms, with the “Moor” sound in the name.

I personally believe there was a deliberately-caused cataclysm within the last couple of hundred years that resulted in a worldwide mud flood that wiped out an advanced global civilization…

…that was subsequently dug out by those involved, and what we have seen playing out in our world are the results of human and social engineering that have been used to divide Humanity by race and religion for the purposes of power and control.

I did not start out from a mud flood perspective, but in the process of what I am researching, I became connected with the mud flood community of researchers on YouTube.

They provide compelling evidence for the occurrence of a mud flood, and what I am seeing in my research corroborates what they are saying.

Now back to Charlotte, North Carolina.

Biddleville, the primary historic center of Charlotte’s so-called African-American community, is west of uptown, and starts at the Johnson C. Smith University campus, extending to the airport. Biddleville was said to have been created in the 1870s for the professors at the Johnson C. Smith University.

This is Biddle Hall on the university campus…

…the Jane M. Smith Memorial Church…

…and the James B. Duke Memorial Library.

I say so-called African-Americans because the Moors were and are indigenous to North America. This was their land.

The Ancient Ones don’t refer to a people that existed a long time ago.  It refers to an ancient people that are alive and living in the present day.

The only way that the controllers have had to control our lives is by deceiving Humanity into thinking they have the ability to do that, because they actually do not. Please note that this identification card says: “Natural Born Day” instead of birthday, then it says “Free in Full Life.” This is a significant point of information.

Here are some historic photos of Charlotte.

I don’t know what this building was, or if it is even still standing, but I noticed there was a symbol at the top of the building…

…and here is a close-up of the symbol. I wonder if this is a representation…

…of the ancient symbol of the Winged Sun, an ancient symbol associated with divinity, royalty, and power.

Here’s an historic photo of Charlotte, where you see horse-drawn carriages in the foreground, advanced masonry, and a streetcar way in the background.

Here’s a closer view of a street car in the Charlotte street-car system…

…and here’s another one in a residential neighborhood in Charlotte.

Looks like Charlotte had a well-developed public transportation system from early in its history.

The next city on the alignment is Durham, the county seat of Durham County, North Carolina, and part of the Research Triangle Region, known for its technology companies and scholarly institutions.

The Old Post Office and Federal Building in Durham was said to have been built in 1906. It was demolished in 1936.

Why build a building that looks like it is made to last forever be demolished in thirty years?

This was the Union Station in Durham circa 1910…

…compared with the Furman University Bell Tower in Greenville, South Carolina…

…Sessions House, the Parliament Building in Hamilton, Bermuda…

…a view of the architecture in Santa Cruz de Tenerife on the Island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands…

…and the ancient Moroccan city of Ait Benhaddou.

This is the Duke University Chapel in Durham, at the center of the campus.

Here it is from the rear.

This European cathedral looking chapel was said to have been built completed in 1935, only 84 years ago. What do you think?

The Sarah P. Duke Memorial Gardens occupy 55-acres, or 22-hectares, of the grounds of Duke University.

The gardens are named after the wife of Benjamin Duke, one of the University’s benefactors.

The gardens are said to have been developed throughout the 1930s.

Next on the alignment is Richmond, the capital of Virginia. It was incorporated in 1742, and has been an independent city since 1871, meaning it is not a part of any county.

Richmond is on the fall line of the James River, where the are rapids down to its own tidal estuary…

…and is 44-miles, or 71-kilometers, west of Williamsburg, the capital of the Colony and Commonwealth of Virginia from 1699 to 1780…

…66-miles, or 106-kilometers east of Charlottesville, the location of the University of Virginia…

…100-miles, or 160-kilometers, east of Lynchburg, on the banks of the James River, and known as the “City of Seven Hills,” a nickname it shares with Rome in Italy…

…and is 90-miles, or 140-kilometers, south of Washington, DC, where we started this journey, and are about to return.

The planter William Byrd II was said to have commissioned Major William Mayo, a British civil engineer, to lay-out the original town grid. Mayo is said to have named the town after the English town of Richmond, because the view of the James River (this was taken from Libby Hill Park in Richmond)…

…was strikingly similar to the view of the River Thames from Richmond Hill in England.

Richmond became the capital of Virginia in 1780, when it was moved from Williamsburg. This is the Virginia State Capitol Building.

Directly to the north of the Virginia State Capitol building is the Old Richmond City Hall…

…and I am comparing it for similarity with the Moscow State Historical Museum in Russia.

This is inside the Old Richmond City Hall…

…and this is inside the Moscow State Historical Museum.

Jackson Ward, another historically called African-American district in Richmond, is located less than a mile from the Virginia State Capitol building.

The sign references businesses there, such as the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank, which survived the Great Depression when many banks went under, which became Consolidated Bank and Trust, and is still here today.

The sign about Jackson Ward also references the Southern Aid Insurance Company, where it was founded in 1893.

This is the Leigh Street Armory in Jackson Ward, which is now the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia.

Monroe Park is a 7.5-acre, or 3-hectare, park that is 1-mile, or 1.6-kilometers, northwest of the Virginia State Capitol building. It is pentagonal in shape, and considered to be Richmond’s oldest park.

It is the eastern point of the Fan District, because of the fan shape of the array of the streets that extend west from Belvedere Street on the eastern edge of Monroe Park, westward to the Boulevard.

The Altria Theater is located at the southwest corner of Monroe Park.

We are told that it was built between 1925 and 1927. This is the interior of the Altria Theater.

Formerly known as The Mosque, and the Landmark Theater, it was said to have been built for the Shriners of the Acca Temple Shrine.

Which Shriners, though? These…

…or these?

Because, you see, this is what all of this, every bit of what has taken place, is really all about.

The Moors were and are the custodians of the Ancient Egyptian mysteries, according to George G. M. James in his book “Stolen Legacy.”

As we slide back into Washington, DC, and complete this circle alignment series…
