Please check out a new connection, provided by Solivagant, about the English woman traveller
, her diaries and her photos:
Gertrude Bell - WHS photographed during her travels
The WHS do look remarkably the same as in the 21st century (Taj Mahal hasn't changed a bit!). What do you think?

There are some whose restoration is quite noticeable -
Borobodur - has virtually complete terraces now but in the photo is just a heap of rubble.
Kinkaku-Ji - now has a beautifully pristine gold roof - but then it was completely rebuilt in 1956 afterr being deliberately burnt down (See an intersting Wiki about this)
Crac des Chevaliers - the main tower (see photo on your review section) also seems to have been restored

I was seraching around for a little more info on Gerturde Bell having encountered her a few times before in radio programmes. The only one I could still find is
if you wanted a listen it is just under 10 minutes long.
