Local historian Doane Robinson came up with the idea for Mount Rushmore in 1923 in order to promote tourism in South Dakota.


Carving of Mount Rushmore was started on October 4, 1927 by Gutzon Borglum, a famous Dutch-American sculptor who was selected for the Mount Rushmore project.



At his death in March 1941 his son, Lincoln Borglum, continued the work and it was completed later that year on October 31, 1941.







Initially, it was planned for the figures to be carved from head to waist, but a shortage in funding didn’t allow for this.

but his vision was at least partially honored in 1998 when the vault was opened.

Tunnels and caverns mines

underneath the city of Paris, France.

By the 18th century, Parisian cemeteries such as Les Innocents (the largest cemetery in Paris) were becoming overpopulated, giving rise to improper burials, open graves, and unearthed corpses. Quite naturally, people living close to such places began complaining about the strong stench of decomposing flesh and the spread of diseases from the> cemeteries.

In 1763, an edict was issued by Louis XV banning all burials from the capital. The Church, however, did not wish to disturb or move the cemeteries, and opposed the edict. As a result, nothing was done. The situation persisted until 1780, when an unusually long period of spring rain caused a wall around the Les Innocents to collapse, resulting in the spilling of rotting corpses into a neighboring property. By this time, the French authorities were forced to take action.

During the 1970s and 80s, the catacombs have been explored illegally by Parisian urban explorers known as Cataphiles.

Slideshow> People who have been exploring the uncharted areas of the catacombs are known as>Les Cataphilesmeaning “the underground lovers”<from Philippe Ory.

Some of the spaces have even been restored and turned into creative spaces. One of these underground caverns, for instance, was transformed into a secret amphitheater, complete with a giant cinema screen, projection equipment, a couple of films and seats. The neighboring area was revamped into a fully-stocked bar and a restaurant, perhaps where the patrons of the amphitheater could get a snack or a> meal.

BY THOR JENSEN: Underneath the streets of Paris stretch over 200 miles of tunnels, caves and catacombs, used for a variety of fascinating purposes. Originally hollowed out for limestone when the city was being built, the Paris catacombs have been used for corpse disposal, mushroom farming, and hideouts for the French resistance during World War II. They were closed to the public in 1955, but a whole subculture of cataphiles has arisen around the underground city. Explorers have renovated tunnels, built living areas and even hosted art exhibitions in the Paris catacombs. A team of French officials monitors the structural integrity of the remaining quarry walls, as they have been known to cave in and take whole neighborhoods on the surface with them.
