Both these shots are of the boarding surrounding the current refurbishments to the Midland Hotel in Morecambe, the first Art Deco hotel in Britain, built in 1933. I'm putting both up as i) I think they work better together, and ii) aren't sufficiently different to put up as separate entries.
On another matter: postings may be sub-standard or non-existent over the next day or so as Libby and I are both struggling with this cold. It's one of those viruses that leaves you feeling as though walking up the stairs is akin to a major Himalayan expedition and even the simplest of tasks are currently a chore. Hopefully I'll come up with something tomorrow, but if not I'll either be raiding the archives or not posting at all.
The EXIF data that follows is for the first shot. The data for the second shot, taken a couple of minutes later, is almost identical.
