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.
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?
