The Alhambra (from the Arabic Calat Alhambra meaning ‘the red fortress’) is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, the capital city of the province of the same name in Andalusia, Spain. It was constructed during the mid 14th century by the Moorish rulers of the Emirate of Granada in al-Andalus.
Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Spain’s major tourist attractions.
An ulster was originally a Victorian working daytime overcoat with a cape and sleeves, made of hard-wearing fabrics, such as herringbones or tweeds. After the Edwardian period, it lost its cape, and continued to be used as a heavy-duty overcoat, often in a double-breasted style.
The phrase 'reach-me-down' is Edwardian slang for cheaply made or second-hand clothing.
