I want to know the History

Some interesting details in this facade:

Linked to Six Word Saturday at Debbie’s here


  1. There are certainly some interesting features on that building, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Oh yes, so do I! A public building of some kind. Hospital? Almshouse? No, too fancy for that …

    • Sue

      Not a clue, I haven’t tracked it down yet….. I know it’s not an almshouse, those are elsewhere in the town, and very un-flash!

  3. They are lovely. And I like that these pediments (is that the right word?) are similar but not completely the same.

  4. I’m wondering how much it has been changed over the years. The upper windows aren’t centred and are offset by different amounts.

  5. It’s making me think of cottage hospitals, often endowed by someone who wants to make their mark, hence all the decorative features. There’s a not so ornate e.g. in Bridgnorth:

  6. Very decorative. Where is this building then?

  7. That’s beautiful, I love all the decoration and the deep red of the brick.

  8. I don’t know about the history but I certainly understand the appeal!
