My husband spent a lot of time in the engine rooms at the National Waterways Museum. Sadly the steam engine is no longer in use via its rather smartly kept boilers. However, there were plenty of photo opportunities for me: lots of little shiny details to pick out. I’m assuming this sign was to remind the operator that the flow of steam from the boiler to the engine needed to be kept within certain limits.
This is the passageway just inside the entrance to the Black Dog of Wells showroom, with examples of their range of bespoke terracotta tiles and plaques.
Black Dog of Wells produces the most amazing bespoke terracotta tiles and plaques. I think this is absolutely gorgeous.
Yesterday’s statue was one of a pair. Here’s a different viewpoint.
This is what it’s about – as seen at the base of the Fourth Plinth on Sunday 12th June 2009.
At the time I took this photograph, I’d just been seen on the internet stream, so does that make me part of the art/installation too?
There’s more over at my regular blog today…
This was an amazing shopping arcade we found by chance on a wet afternoon in Norwich.
You can see some of the wonderful tiling in the top left hand corner of the photo.
The plaque confirms the arcade dates from the Art Nouveau period.
