-19" Early manufacturing in the town and in neighbouring Pathhead consisted of coarse cloth and nail making, the latter of which went to the Royal Master of Works for repairs at Holyrood Palace until the seventeenth century. Linen weaving, which began in 1672, became important to the town, with yarn being imported from Hamburg and Bremen. The pottery industry, which was originally established in 1714 as an offshoot of the Linktown Brick and Tile Works, was centred around Linktown, Gallatown and Sinclairtown.

The Fife Pottery, built by Andrew and Archibald Grey in 1817, produced Wemyss Ware, named after the family who owned Wemyss Castle. Glen, ''Kirkcaldy: An Illustrated History from Pre-history to 2007'', p.61. It was first performed in London on 20 February 1724. The opera was an immediate success. Handel revived it (with changes) in 1725, 1730, and 1732; it was also performed in Paris, Hamburg, and Brunswick (Braunschweig (city)). Like Handel's other works in the opera seria genre, ''Giulio Cesare'' fell into obscurity in the 19th century. A number of his finest works are to be found at the Berlin National Gallery, the New Pinakothek in Munich, and the galleries at Dresden, Darmstadt, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Hamburg. Many of his paintings are in galleries in the United States. thumb right ''The Tree'' (Image:Nehberg The Tree.jpg) '''Rüdiger Nehberg''', also known as 'Sir Vival', (born 4 May 1935) is a German human rights activist, author and survival (wiktionary:survival) expert who introduced survival training (survival skills) to Europe.

book covers

, Hamburg, Cuxhaven. Otto Eckmann was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1865. He studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Hamburg and Nuremberg and at the academy in Munich. In 1894, Eckmann gave up painting (and auctioned off his works) in order to concentrate on applied design. He began producing graphic work for the magazines Pan (Pan (magazine)) in 1895 and Jugend (Jugend (magazine)) in 1896. He also designed book covers for the publishers Cotta (Cotta (publishing house)), Diederichs (Eugen Diederichs), Scherl (August Scherl) and Seemann (Seemann (publisher)), as well as the logo for the publishing house S. Fischer Verlag. In 1897 he taught ornamental painting at the Unterrichtsanstalt des Königlichen Kunstgewerbemuseums (Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin) in Berlin. In 1899, he designed the logo for the magazine Die Woche. From 1900 to 1902, Eckmann did graphic work for the ''Allgemeine Elektrizitätsgesellschaft'' (AEG). During this time, he designed the fonts ''Eckmann'' (in 1900) and ''Fette Eckmann'' (in 1902), probably the most common Jugendstil fonts still in use today. background group_or_band origin Hamburg, Germany Instruments '''Die Goldenen Zitronen''' (English (English language): '''The Golden Lemons''') are a punk rock band from Hamburg, Germany that are known for their entertaining and politically relevant style. Their original name was '''Die Deutschen Nazikartoffeln''' ('''The German Nazi-potatoes'''). When the band formed in 1984 at the beginning of the “Fun-Punk”-movement, punk (Punk rock) was their main style. They are considered a forerunner to the "Hamburger Schule." Over the years the band added more experimental musical forms, with which different styles were combined. Their lyrics are political and take a critical view of society from a left to left-radical perspective. Bienenbüttel is located at the Elbe-Seitenkanal a 115 km long waterway. Bienenbüttel also is a station of the highspeed rail route Hamburg-Uelzen-Hannover He is best known as the founding member and lead singer of Die Goldenen Zitronen, a political punk band from Hamburg. In recent years, he has also worked as an author and director for the theater and has staged several of his plays at renowned theatres around Germany, Austria and Switzerland, such as the Volksbuehne in Berlin. Headquartered in Seoul, WEG maintains offices in Los Angeles, Hamburg, and Beijing. Starting with the orangery of Sanssouci (1851), "the Neo-Renaissance became the obligatory style for university and public buildings, for banks and financial institutions, and for the urban villas" in Germany. ''The Cambridge Companion to Modern German Culture''. Cambridge University Press, 1999. ISBN 0-521-56870-6. Page 283. At Sanssouci in 1851, even the most established Roman idiom of the triumphal arch was abandoned and recast in a neo-Renaissance mode for Friedrich Wilhelm IV in erecting the ''Triumphtor'' in the hundred and sixth year, so its inscription states, since the founding of Sanssouci (''illustration''). Among the most accomplished examples of the style were Villa Meyer in Dresden, Palais Borsig in Berlin, Villa Meissner in Leipzig; the German version of Neo-Renaissance culminated in such turgid projects as the Town Hall in Hamburg (1886–97) and the Reichstag (Reichstag (building)) in Berlin (completed in 1894).

thumb Official logo of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (File:Hamburg-logo.svg) thumb Hamburg, seen from the International Space Station (File:HamburgFromTheISS.jpg) '''Hamburg''' ( It is also the thirteenth largest German state (States of Germany). Its population is over 1.8 million people, and the Hamburg Metropolitan Region (including parts of the neighbouring Federal States (States of Germany) of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) has more than 5 million inhabitants. The port of Hamburg, on the river Elbe, is the second largest port in Europe (after the Port of Rotterdam) and tenth largest worldwide.

The official name reflects its history (History of Hamburg) as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and one of the 16 states of Germany. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign state. Prior to the constitutional changes in 1919, the stringent civic republic was ruled by a class of hereditary grand burghers or Hanseaten (Hanseaten (class)).

Hamburg is a major transport hub and is one of the most affluent (Affluency) cities in Europe. It has become a media and industrial centre, with plants and facilities belonging to ''Airbus'', ''Blohm + Voss'' and ''Aurubis''. The radio and television broadcaster ''Norddeutscher Rundfunk'' and publishers such as ''Gruner + Jahr'' and ''Spiegel (Der Spiegel)-Verlag'' are pillars of the important media industry in Hamburg. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and is the seat of the world's second oldest bank (List of oldest banks in continuous operation), Berenberg Bank. There are more than 120,000 enterprises.

The city is a notable tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; it ranked 17th (Mercer Quality of Living Survey) in the world for livability in 2012.
