Numerals (in decay…)

Some numerals found on decaying structures…or rescued old structures in France. From Maginot Line forts to the old motor racing circuit of Reims-Geux, I saw quite a few numbers, with varying functions:

  1. I love that old machine dial. That would look great in someone’s ‘Designer Loft’. A real conversation piece.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. These numbers had been important once. Great finds.

  3. These are great, Sue! Pete is so right about the machine dial. 🙂 🙂 Or you could have a tryptic of these photos on that same wall.

  4. I try to avoid numbers outside of work!

  5. I recommend visiting flea markets for old dials… love yours… especially those with rust

  6. A lovely series. No one does ‘decay’ quite like you 🙂
