The weather has been so unpredictable this year but it finally seems to have settled a little. Managed to get out and about this week on a couple of days in between the chores. Here’s my (late) eclectic contribution to Norm 2.0 “Thursday Doors” blog.
Fleur Enjoying The Warmth
Met up with my PhotoBuddies on Tuesday for a coffee and a walk around some of the older parts of the city (Leicester).
This is very near to where the old Great Central Railway bridged it’s way into the station. I’ve decided I like louvre’s.
Underneath The Arches
These two guy’s were more than happy to pose for a photograph outside their Engineering Co. which sits under the old railway arches. We had a good chat about how the area had changed over the years. I’ll pop back next week and drop them in a print of this photo.
S R & S 1919
I’ve tried to find out what S R & S was, but no luck. I guess a trip to the reference library and a look at some old trade directories might supply the answer. The whole area (Bath Lane) had a lot of engineering companies and foundries in it’s heyday, it’s now becoming an apartment block zone !
The next few are from yesterday’s (Thursday) trip to town.
This shop at the top of the Market Place is being restored, it’s a lovely old shopfront.
Knight & Garter
This pub has been just been totally restored, I was tempted to go in and try the beer but I had jobs to do at home.
Bowling Green Street
I’ve walked past this lovely doorway countless times, never really took much notice. But it’s been restored and is now a restaurant. Can’t find much information about the building other than it’s Grade 11 listed and possibly the old Water Board offices.
