Lemoore, California

Joaquin River's watershed, and the Kings River itself nearly intersect near Lemoore, a number of huge water works that control regional water flow are also located nearby. For example, in flood years the Kings River is diverted west into the so-called "North Fork Kings River," to Crescent Weir and related major levees eastward to the north-flowing Fresno Slough and to the sea, preventing a resurgence ("flooding") of Tulare Lake to the south.

Samuel A. Ossory Fitzpatrick: A Historical and Topographical Account of the City 1907 ;The hotel The hotel at the harbour was opened in 1807 (the architect was James Colbourne). In 1858 it was taken over by a Catholic order of nuns, who used it as an asylum (St. Mary's) for blind girls. A few years later they successfully appealed to the Guardians of the South Dublin Union for some finance (it cost £10 to keep a girl for a year), though the Irish Times in an editorial frowned upon this proselytising by "Romanists", while they lauded the efforts of the Protestant-run "Home for Orphans" at 7 South Richmond Street (which advertised frequently for "fresh souls to save" in the same newspaper). He afterwards returned to the Abbey theatre. In 1936 John Ford brought him to the United States to act in a film version of ''The Plough and the Stars''.

Reports of loss of rifles, Lewis guns and ammunition necessitated the massive transfer of the battalions out of the country in November, the 3rd to Devonport (HMNB Devonport), England, the others to Scotland, 4th to Invergordon the 5th to Dreghorn. Staunton pp.165-6 With the possibility of the extension of conscription to Ireland those Irish battalions still stationed in Ireland were transferred to England in April 1918. The RMFs were relocated again, 3rd to Plymouth, 4th to Portobello (Portobello, Dublin) and the 5th to Fort George (Fort George, Scotland), all three eventually amalgamating at Plymouth by August.

Gatineau

constructed in 1886 as the Hull Water Works, at a time when the site was at the heart of a largely industrial area. In the subsequent decades the building served a number of different purposes. In 1974 it suffered a devastating fire. The city of Hull and the National Capital Commission joined together to rebuild the structure as a theatre. It opened in 1976, and was the first municipally run theatre in Quebec. The '''Tour Eiffel Bridge''', also known as the '''Montcalm Street Bridge''' is a small but ornate bridge in Gatineau, Quebec. There had long been a bridge across Brewery Creek (Brewery Creek (Gatineau)), but by the 1980s it needed to be replaced. Hull (Hull, Quebec) and the National Capital Commission were working to turn the Brewery Creek area into a tourist and cultural district. It was decided to build an ornate structure. Incorporated in the bridge was an original steel girder from the Eiffel Tower, that had been part of a recently disassembled staircase. The girder was donated to Hull by Paris mayor Jacques Chirac. Architects Paul Martineau and Eric Haar modeled the bridge on Parisian style. It opened in 1990. '''Riverview''' is an historic manor (manor house) in Gatineau, Quebec. It was originally built by the lumber baron David Moore (David Moore (lumber baron)) in 1865. The sprawling Jacobean (Jacobean architecture) structure is a noted landmark. The house later became home to Edward S. Skead and his family, who were also in the lumber business. birth_date Commons:Category:Gatineau, Québec WikiPedia:Gatineau, Quebec Dmoz:Regional North_America Canada Quebec Localities G Gatineau

Gil Medcalf had played for Eton Manor both before and after the Second World War, and the inclusion of manor in our club name is a direct echoing of Gil's own career. Plot A period comedy set in 1985, the story chronicles the adventures of Brian Jackson (James McAvoy), a student in his first year at Bristol University. A somewhat geeky gifted accumulator of knowledge, Brian has been a fan since childhood of ''University Challenge''. That TV show's famous catchphrase—"Your starter for 10"—gives the film its title. Soon after arriving at university, he seizes upon the opportunity to join Bristol's ''University Challenge'' team. He promptly falls for his glamorous team mate Alice (Alice Eve), though he may be more compatible with a Jewish counterculturalist friend, Rebecca (Rebecca Hall). Additionally, Brian finds himself caught between his new life, amongst the academic university set, and his old, with his working-class family and friends in the seaside town of Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
