Spanish Riding School Vienna


The famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, is located in a number of buildings on the Michaelerplatz and the Josefplatz near the Hofburg in central Vienna. Performances take place in the Winter Riding School, an elegant riding hall that was completed in 1735 and was commissioned by the Emperor Charles VI. Prior to that, the School operated from an arena at the Imperial Palace. The Winter Riding School is completely white, with a portrait of Emperor Charles VI above the royal box and opposite the entrance (to which the riders always salute before they ride), and measures 55 by 18 meters and is 17 meters in height.

Francis Moore

A Voyage to Georgia Begun in the Year 1735 by Francis Moore was published in 1744. The full title is "A Voyage to Georgia Begun in the Year 1735. Containing An Account of the Settling the Town of Frederica, in the Southern part of the Province and a description of the Soil, Air, Birds, Beasts, Trees, Rivers, Islands, &c. With The Rules and Orders made by the Honorable the Trustees for that Settlement, including the Allowance of Provisons, Clothing and other Necessaries to the Families and Servants which went thiter. Also A Description of the Town and County of Savannah, in the Northern Part of the Province; the manner of dividing and granting the Lands and the Improvements there: With an Account of the Air, Soil, Rivers and Islands in that Part. By Francis Moore, Author of Travels into the Inland Parts of Africa. London, 1744". It has been reprinted in modern times and is of antiquarian interest.
It contains the most detailed account of the establishment of Frederica, at that time the southernmost English fort in America. The majority of the settlers were England's "worthy poor", that had been carefully selected by the Trustees, but there were also persecuted German protestants. Moore served at Frederica as Keeper of the King's Stores and as Oglethorpe's Secretary. But conflicts arose between them and Moore returned to England in 1743.
