New York City (or NYC) -- officially, "City of New York," and affectionately known as "The Big Apple" -- is the largest city of the state of New York and in the United States, and by many measures, one of the most important cities in the world.
New York is also the location of what was, according to many experts, the most devastating act of terrorism in modern history: the September 11, 2001 attack that utterly destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center and several surrounding buildings.
New York has had a reputation as a crime-ridden city, partly due to the hundreds of TV and cinematic crime dramas set in it.
The current mayor of New York City is Michael Bloomberg, elected in 2001 on the Republican ticket. Although New York's harbour was first discovered by Giovanni da Verrazano during his expedition of 1524, the history of New York City properly begins with the Dutch settlement of 1624.
In 1664, British ships captured the city, with minimal resistance: the governor at the time, Peter Stuyvesant, was unpopular with the residents of the city. Several battles were fought in New York during the Revolutionary War; the British defeated George Washington's troops, and held the city until the war ended. New York was briefly the capital of the new United States of America, in 1789 and 1790, and George Washington was inaugurated as President in New York, then the nation's second largest city.
The building of the Erie Canal, in the 1820s, helped the city grow further by increasing river traffic upstate and to the west.
The modern city of New York -- the five boroughs -- was created in 1898, as the merger of the cities of New York (then Manhattan and the Bronx) and Brooklyn with the largely rural areas of Queens and Staten Island. The building of the New York subway, as the separate IRT and BMT systems, and the later IND, was a later force for population growth and development.
The world-famous Grand Central Terminal[?] opened as the world's largest train station on February 1, 1913. As of the census of 2000, there are 8,008,278 people, 3,021,588 households, and 1,852,233 families residing in the city. The median income for a household in the city is $38,293, and the median income for a family is $41,887.

The early evidence of a settlement in what is now the Parish of Shrawley was centered near a ford across the Severn, between it and the Woods. The heavily wooded countryside included the Hundred of Doddingtree, which embraced the manors of Abberley, Astley and Glasshampton as well as that of Shrawley. The parish of Shrawley is not mentioned in the Domesday Book and the first official record of its existence is in the Evesham Chartulary or Register assigned to the latter half of the 12th century.
Through Ralph Todeni the manor of Shrawley fell by marriage to the Beauchamps* (see further details of the Beauchamps and le Poers at the end of this brief history) associated with the manor of Holt and subsequently again by marriage to the Earl of Warwick, the King Maker, who died discredited by the King, and so the Manor of Shrawley passed to the crown.
At the time of the Civil Wars 1642 - 1651 the Manor was divided, William Chylde, an ardent Royalist, possessing the woods and John Adams the remainder.
The only other armed conflict referred to in the neighbourhood is that of a Battle in 1405 on Woodbury Hill in sight of Shrawley.
By the year 1681 the Chylde family had acquired thewhole of the Manor and sold it to Alan Cliffe who later in 1700 sold it to Thomas Vernon of Hanbury to begin a long and continuing association of that family with the Parish. Near to Dick Brook and behind the monastery stands an interesting relic of the times in which Glasshampton Manor was built. The comparative calm of the Middle Ages was rudely changed in the late eighteenth century by the advent of the Industrial Revolution which was accompanied by a consequential change in farming methods. The nineteenth century was one of industrial development, awakening interest in social problems and in the absence of war for the greater part, one of returning stability and prosperity. In the year 1701 Glasshampton Manor, one of the stately homes of England, was erected together with landscaped parkland in place of Todeni's castle, but in Victorian times it was burnt to the ground leaving only a walled garden and an impressive range of stables which were converted, starting in 1918, by Father William into the Anglican community of St.

It remained in constant use until bridges were built at Stourport and Holt and until the use of river vessels of a deeper draft demanded the construction of weirs and locks or the dredging and deepening of the shallows associated with rocky outcrops such as those at Shrawley Weyre. The overlordship of the Hundred of Doddingtree was granted to a Ralph Todeni, a relative of the Duke of Normandy, in the year 1066 by William the Conqueror as a reward for his services as Standard Bearer during the Norman Conquest. The Lord of the Manor's right of appointment of a clergyman to the parisha€”a survival of the control exercised by Feudal Lords over churchesa€”meant that the boundaries of manor and parish were commonly and conveniently co-extensive.

Many of the changes which occurred are familiar, not peculiar to this parish and need not be repeated here but the recollections and reminiscences of some of the older parishioners, who have spent a lifetime in the area will shed some light upon the conditions and customs which prevailed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Other images of Enami's studio -- both interior and exterior views -- are shown farther down on this page.A  While offering many of the same services and productions as his contemporaries, he also engaged in other activities that made him unique.

A He was one of only a few photographers born during Japan's old Edo-Bakumatsu period, who went on to photograph right through to the Showa period of Emperor Hirohito.Enami was also one of the few to experience, and then successfully outgrow his roots as a traditional maker of the classic, large-format "Yokohama Shashin" albums.
