Wacky Westgate and ramble

It took me some time to get out from under the covers this morning, us fogies are supposed not to need any sleep – but you know how it is or perhaps you don’t. My day off today and I lay under the covers thinking about my dreams and eventually got going late. Anyway I eventually made it to Westgate, to look at some books, which it transpired I didn’t want to buy, so I eventually wound up in Fredricks Tea Room in part of The Carlton Cinema building contemplating the Victorian buildings opposite.

Should we be doing more to preserve our Victorian buildings do you think?


Look at these two, once. When? About 1885 perhaps. They must have been a matched pair - twins as it were.

A close look reveals fancy brickwork and tiles; if you fancy that sort of thing.
see the brickwork between the widows has been replaced and it looks like there was once a sort of brick pillar effect between them

 Like this perhaps












The Victorians certainly left there mark

On to Canterbury for more books

a lunch of chocolate, cherries and ice cream

a sketch which ran out of time.

That was my sunny day, how was yours?

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
