Though the area offered France little economic or strategic gain, the military advocated greater conquest in the region; this was due to a fascination with the great empires, such as the Mali Empire and the Songhay Empire that rose to prominence in the area, due to the promotional opportunities that military conquest offered for French military personnel. French conquest began in , when Joseph Gallieni was dispatched to the area to establish a fort and survey the land for a railroad from Dakar in Senegal to the Niger River ; this was followed with the establishment of a number of French forts and political alliances with specific leaders in the region in the early s.
The administrative structure of the area was still under control of the French Governor of Senegal , the most significant colonization were the military forts and outposts, including the important one established at Kayes in by Gustave Borgnis-Desbordes. Though the civilian administration of the French governor of Senegal formally ruled the area, military officers in the region bypassed these leaders and answered directly to commanding officers in Paris.
Desbordes took over more territory using inter-ethnic rivalries and political tension among leaders in the area to appoint French-supportive leaders. French civilian administrators struggled with the military leaders, the two forces went through a number of leadership changes over the territory, until Louis Archinard was appointed military governor in Archinard led military campaigns against Samori Ture , Ahmadu Tall , other resistant leaders in the region, with varying success.

Archinard's campaigns were executed through direct military control, without civilian oversight; as costs increased, the French administration decided to replace Archinard's control over the area with a civilian governor, Louis Albert Grodet. The region was governed under a number of different names between and On 10 October , French Sudan was divided, with the southern cercles joining coastal colonies, the rest split into two administrative areas called Middle Niger and Upper Senegal.
In , the region again was organized as a unified colony under Niger; the name changed again in to Upper Niger. In , the name changed back to French Sudan. Borders and administration of the colony changed a number of times, and for the initial period, the colony vacillated between military administration and civilian administration from Senegal.
In , French Sudan formally came under civilian administration, which lasted until At that point, a reorganization of the colony split 11 southern provinces to other French colonies like French Guinea , the Ivory Coast and Dahomey ; the area, not reorganized was governed in two administrations linked to other French colonies. Following this, the territory of the colony was reestablished in Though the borders shifted there was little territorial change until At that point, the colony of the French Upper Volta dissolved, the northern territory was added to French Sudan.
In , Upper Volta was reestablished, the French Sudan borders became those that became the borders of Mali. Kayes was the original capital city from the s until , when the capital moved to Bamako , where it remains; the colony supported rain-fed agriculture, with limited irrigation for its first 30 years. The only cash crops were nuts gathered close to the railroad between Bamako. Unlike other agricultural projects in French West Africa , the French Sudan irrigation project relied on families voluntarily resettling along lines established by the colonial authority. Unable to attract enough volunteers, the colonial authorities began to try forced resettlement to the cotton project; the Office du Niger was founded in as the main organizat.

Barbican Hall: capacity 1, Barbican Theatre: capacity 1,, it is one of the largest public libraries in London and has a separate arts library, a large music library and a children's library which conducts free events.

The Barbican Centre had a long development period, only opening long after the surrounding Barbican Estate housing complex had been built, it is situated in an area, badly bombed during World War II. Lines painted on the ground help would-be audience members avoid getting lost on the walkways of the Barbican Housing Estate on the way to the centre; the Barbican Centre's design — a concrete ziggurat — has always been controversial and divides opinion.
It was voted "London's ugliest building" in a Grey London poll in September It has been designated a site of special architectural interest for its scale, its cohesion and the ambition of the project. In the mids, a cosmetic improvement scheme by Theo Crosby , of the Pentagram design studio , added statues and decorative features reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts movement.
In —, the centre underwent a more significant refurbishment, designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Roger Westman , which improved circulation and introduced bold signage in a style in keeping with the centre's original s Brutalist architecture; that improvement scheme added an internal bridge linking the Silk Street foyer area with the lakeside foyer area. The centre's Silk Street entrance dominated by an access for vehicles, was modified to give better pedestrian access.
The scheme included removing most of the mids embellishments. Outside, the main focal point of the centre is its neighbouring terrace; the theatre's fly tower has been made into a high-level conservatory. The Barbican Hall's acoustic has been controversial: some praised it as attractively warm, but others found it too dry for large-scale orchestral performance.
Art music magazine Gramophone still complained about "the relative dryness of the Barbican acoustic" in August ; the theatre was built as the London home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, involved in the design, but decided not to renew its contract in after claiming a lack of performing space, plus the artistic director, Adrian Noble , wanting to develop the company's touring performances. The theatre's response was to extend its existing six-month season of international productions, "Barbican International Theatre Event", to the whole year.
On 23 January Greg Doran , RSC artistic director, announced the Company's return to the Barbican Centre in a three-year season of Shakespeare's history plays; the Guildhall School of Music and Drama , where the Barbican Centre theatrical performances are staged, the City of London's Barbican Library, neither part of the centre, are on the site.

Note that this image is a mirror of Lincoln as he appears on the bill - this is because the daguerreotype process produced a single positive image rather than a negative made on film , which is then used to make a true photographic positive , and the daguerreotype was always a mirror image of the subject material.
Thus, the way Lincoln appears on the bill is actually how he appeared when seated for the picture.
