A city is a large human settlement. It can be defined as a permanent and densely settled place with administratively defined boundaries whose members work primarily on non-agricultural tasks. Cities generally have extensive systems for housing, transportation, sanitation, utilities, land use, and communication. Their density facilitates interaction between people, government organisations and businesses, sometimes benefiting different parties in the process, such as improving efficiency of goods and service distribution. This concentration also can have significant negative consequences, such as forming urban heat islands, concentrating pollution, and stressing water supplies and other resources.

Historically, city-dwellers have been a small proportion of humanity overall, but following two centuries of unprecedented and rapid urbanization, roughly half of the world population now lives in cities, which has had profound consequences for global sustainability. Present-day cities usually form the core of larger metropolitan areas and urban areas—creating numerous commuters traveling towards city centres for employment, entertainment, and edification. However, in a world of intensifying globalisation, all cities are to varying degrees also connected globally beyond these regions. This increased influence means that cities also have significant influences on global issues, such as sustainable development, global warming and global health. Because of these major influences on global issues, the international community has prioritized investment in sustainable cities through Sustainable Development Goal 11.

Other important traits of cities besides population include the capital status and relative continued occupation of the city. For example, country capitals such as Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Athens, Beijing, Berlin, Brasilia, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Canberra, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Mexico City, Moscow, New Delhi, Ottawa, Paris, Rome, San José, Santiago, Seoul, Tokyo, Taipei, Ulaanbaatar, Warsaw, and Washington, D.C. reflect their nation's identity. Some historic capitals, such as Kyoto, maintain their reflection of cultural identity even without modern capital status. Religious holy sites offer another example of capital status within a religion, Jerusalem, Mecca, and Varanasi each hold significance. The cities of Faiyum, Damascus, and Argos are among those laying claim to the longest continual inhabitation.

Close-up view of refugees fleeing along Grove Street from the Ham & Egg fire. This fire started in a house on the south side of Hayes Street when a woman started a fire in her stove to make breakfast around 9 AM. The chimney was defective due to the quake and fire broke out. This fire burned more territory than any other single fire, since all fire departments were engaged elsewhere no concentrated attack was possible, so the fire spread out of control reaching Gough and Grove Streets. The fire caused the destruction of the Mission district as well as the Hayes Valley section, including the Mechanics' Pavilion and the City Hall. The earthquake hit at 5:12:05 AM, measuring 8.25 on the...

Street and house are built on an old swamp, which has never been drained. Only sewers are rough ditches underneath sidwalks, which frequently break under weight of unwary pedestrian who is projected into sewer ditch beneath. Mud in roads is so deep that it is impossible to do any trucking with automobiles on side streets. Main street is paved so poorly trucking is very difficult. Street car runs over six mile route, up main street of city. Fare is sixty kopecks (nominally 35 cents) for each of three "fare stages" and has to be paid in postage stamps

Airplanes - Materials - Castor Bean Culture, Dade City, Florida. Close view of castor plan showing the arrangement of the seeds. The castor oil which is made from the beans is used as a lubricant for airplane engines since high altitude does not freeze it. The industry is practically new in this country as a result of war needs. Several tons of castor seeds were supplied by the British government in order to get the industry properly started here.

NARA & DVIDS Public Domain Archive

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
