War of The Three Kingdoms
"Shikumen" is a traditional Shanghainese architectural style combining Western and Chinese elements that first appeared in the 1860s. Shikumens are two- or three-story structures resembling Anglo-American terrace houses or townhouses, distinguished by high brick walls enclosing a narrow front yard. The name "stone gate" references these strong gateways. Each residence abuts another and all are arranged in straight side alleys called "longtang". At the height of their popularity, there were 9000 shikumen-style buildings in Shanghai, comprising 60% of the total housing stock of the city, but today the proportion is much lower as most Shanghainese live in large apartment buildings. Many of these old shikumen-style buildings have been renovated and converted into arts and crafts tourist attractions.

Subject: Muskoka Chair Photo taken in Huntsville, Ontario in Summer 2012 Definition (from wiki): The Adirondack chair is a simple rustic wooden chair for outdoor use. In the original design it was made with 11 flat wooden boards, with a straight back and seat. It also features wide armrests. In Canada it is sometimes known as the Muskoka chair, from the eponymous Canadian town. Muskoka is a scenic area sprinkled with about 1600 lakes, picturesque villages and towns, farming communities, and lakeside vacation hotels and resorts near to golf courses, country clubs, and marinas. Now, you know why this seat is golden :-)
