Canopy 2004


Early in July I showed a closeup of the Ironwork on the shelter by the Post Office.

Looking through some older photographs I found this 2004 picture which shows a little more of the canopy.

It's lovely - I hope it is preserved.
You can tell this is an old photo -Does the Bradford and Bingley still exist?

I'll be sat there shortly whilst I wait for Jane, Lot's of Bills to pay today....
It is a great place to sit and people watch.

First. thanks for visiting my blog and for commenting there about the bumblebee macro shot.

Lots of people do not like bees and wasps and hornets and I can sympathize with them. I have been stung by wasps, hornets, honey bees and bumblebees in some unlikely places and of those mentioned, the hornet's sting is like what I imagine a red-hot iron poker must feel like going into my skin. Wow.

I liked your photograph of the canopy at the post office.

Looks a bit Belle Epoche, doesn't it?

Enjoyed your California trip photos from 1999. How funny that you visted Tustin - we lived there in the 80's...And Newport Beach...and Del Rey Beach...
Visited the area again in 2003 and barely recognized it!

The opacity is nice for keeping the rain off but letting the light in. And it's quite prettily ornate all around it.

That ironwork is beautiful, and the canopy too. I like the composition of this shot. Enjoy your weeken!

I'll have to go and have a look at this shelter next time I'm home Gerald, I just can't think where it is, although I know where the post office is.

Hello, are the bus shelters original or have they been placed recently to try an give an older look to the area

Whilst the bus shelter on Market Street is a listed building and originally a tram stop, this one, though similiar is a later design. It is not a bus shelter, just seating within a pedestrianated area. I don't know but it is possible that the canopy and ironwork was originally part of a tram stop.
