Biography[edit]
Brookfield was born on 25 March 1821, the youngest daughter of Sir Charles Abraham Elton, a former soldier. She lived with her seven sisters and five brothers, along with her father and mother Sarah in Clevedon Court, near Bristol. Sir Charles was a published author, writing a elegy about two of his sons who had drowned in the Bristol Channel, and was friends with both Charles Lamb and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.[1]
In 1837, the family moved to Southampton, and due to Jane’s height her father nicknamed her “Glumdalclitch”. In 1838 she was courted by and became engaged to William Henry Brookfield, the priest at the local church, twelve years her senior. After he found a better job, as curate of St James’s Church, Piccadilly, the couple married on 18 November 1841.[1]
Jane maintained an influential literary salon, which included among others Thackeray and her husband’s old college friend Alfred Tennyson. It was her close friendship with Thackeray for which she is best remembered and in the mid-1840s they were on intimate terms. D. J. Taylor in her biography in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states “the relationship between him and Jane was almost certainly not sexual (there may have been a chaste embrace or two …)”.[1] Thackeray incorporated some of her characteristics in to two of his characters: Amelia Sedley in Vanity Fair (1848), and Laura Bell in Pendennis (1850).[1]
Family[edit]
The couple were survived by their two sons Arthur Montagu Brookfield (1853–1940) who became a British army officer, diplomat author and Conservative politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1903; and Charles Hallam Elton Brookfield (1857–1913) an actor.[1]

St Michael is a civil parish part of the City and District of St Albans in Hertfordshire, England.[2] From 1894 to 1974 the parish was known as St Michael Rural. The population in 2001 was 494.[3] The local council is St Michael Parish Council.
History[edit]
St Michael was an ancient parish. Part of the parish was within the Municipal Borough of St Albans until 1894, when it was split to create St Michael Urban in the borough and St Michael Rural outside.[4] St Michael Rural became part of St Albans Rural District.
Parts of St Michael Rural were transferred to the borough of St Albans in 1913 (138 acres) and 1935 (890 acres).
On 1 April 1974 the parish of St Michael Rural was split with part going to the unparished area in Dacorum and the rest becoming the parish of St Michael in the City of St Albans district.
Geography[edit]
It comprises a wholly rural area to the west of St Albans and is bounded on its western side by Hemel Hempstead. The parish is bisected by the M1 motorway.
Settlement is dispersed across a number of small and isolated hamlets:

Appspond
Breakspears
Bushwood
Childwickbury
Gorhambury

Ferrar Glacier

The Ferrar Glacier

Ferrar Glacier is a glacier in Antarctica. It is about 35 miles (56 km) long, flowing from the plateau of Victoria Land west of the Royal Society Range to New Harbour in McMurdo Sound. The glacier makes a right (east) turn northeast of Knobhead, where it is apposed, i.e., joined in Siamese-twin fashion, to Taylor Glacier. From there, it continues east along the south side of the Kukri Hills to New Harbour.
It was discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition, (1901–04) under Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who named this feature for Hartley T. Ferrar, geologist of the expedition. The name Ferrar Glacier was originally applied both to the part of this glacier below its right turn and to the present Taylor Glacier. Thomas Griffith Taylor, geologist of the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910–13, under Scott, found evidence that these are not two parts of a single glacier but are two glaciers apposed. With this discovery Scott gave the names Ferrar Glacier and Taylor Glacier essentially as now applied; the Taylor Glacier makes a left turn at Cavendish Rocks and drains east along the north side of the Kukri Hills.[1]

Early life[edit]
Ilya Schor was born in Zloczow (Galicia), in the Austrian Empire, later Poland, in 1904. He came from a deeply Hasidic family. His father Naftali Schorr was a folk-artist, painting colorfully illustrated store signs for local merchants. Ilya Schor first trained as an apprentice in metalcrafts and engraving before enrolling at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 1930 where he studied painting. In 1937, he was awarded a grant by the Polish government to study in Paris. He exhibited successfully at the Salon d’Automne in 1938. Ilya Schor and his artist wife Resia Schor immigrated to the United States in December, 1941, from Marseilles, via Lisbon, after fleeing Paris in late May 1940. Ilya Schor and Resia Schor had two daughters, born in New York City: artist and writer Mira Schor (b. 1950) and noted literary scholar and theorist, Naomi Schor (1943–2001).

Later life and work[edit]
In New York City, Ilya Schor began artwork that would keep fresh his memories of life of the Jews of the shtetls of Eastern Europe, working in the many materials and with the numerous skills at his disposal. He worked on major commissions for synagogues in the United States. Schor’s wood-engraving illustrations for The Earth is The Lord’s and The Sabbath, both important writings by the renowned philosopher and theologian, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and for Adventures of Mottel The Cantor’s Son by Sholem Aleichem, have remained in print for over fifty years. Rabbi Heschel wrote of Schor’s work, “In the stillness of the precious images Ilya Schor has called into being, generations to come will hear the voice and the spirit of eternal Israel, the inwardness and piety of our people of Eastern Europe.” Schor was also the creator of unique jewelry and small Judaica objects in silver and gold. In later years he also worked on abstract sculptures in brass and copper.
His work was exhibited at The Salpeter Gallery in New York 1953, the Museum of Contemporary Art in

Magnolia Depot is a historic railway station located at 101 E. Railroad Avenue, in Magnolia, Mississippi.[3] The depot was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and was designated a Mississippi Landmark in 2006.[1][2]
Description[edit]
In 1893, a fire destroyed Magnolia’s railway depot that was constructed in 1856.[3][4] Between 1893 and 1895, the present structure was built on the same site, next to the Illinois Central Railroad.[3]
The depot is a one-story, wood-frame building with a rectangular floor plan.[1] It was designed to accommodate both freight and passengers at the turn of the 20th century, when Magnolia served as a resort destination.[2] The depot has a gable roof design with wide eaves. The track side of the building was designed with irregular placement of sash windows, a bay window, single entrance doors, and freight doors. The opposite side of the building had single entrance doors and sash windows.
Restoration[edit]
By 1982, the building was used as an antique store and no longer served as a railway station.[1] During the first decade of the 21st century, the City of Magnolia acquired the property for use as a city hall.[4] Because of the structure’s age and deterioration of the foundation, complete exterior restoration was required, but the original windows and siding were retained for historical integrity.[4] New exterior doors were installed, and the freight doors were removed and were replaced with windows. For the interior, original doors, wood flooring, and beadboard walls were retained and restored. Renovation also included new plumbing and electrical wiring.[4]
Grants for restoration were provided by Mississippi Department of Archives and History and the Mississippi Department of Transportation
