1047 : Halifax Piece Hall


This photograph was taken just around the corner from the one I featured yesterday so I assume it was from the same set of self-developed transparencies. 45 years on, the Halifax Piece Hall still exists, although the fine old houses to the right of the entrance are long gone. And I dare say that if you tried to tie your washing line to the entrance arch of this fine Grade 1 listed building, you would get into bother.

I bet it's not quite the same without the houses and the washing line :)

Funny how things like dirty laundry just follow us no matter where we go! I really got a laugh out of this!

A wonderful old place, hope it is not preserved in isolation amidst horrid modern buildings now. I like the idea that one could hang washing from it actually!

Snazzy new layout, looks very nice. I confess I find it a bit hard to navigate between the days. But that is bound to be just me and I am sure I will get used to it!
