The imposing town hall building on a wet evening.
Taken with a Nikon D80
Sigma 10-20 lens
The foundation stone was laid in 1867 and the building was opened with great ceremony in 1873. The principal external decoration was a symbolic group of life size figures representing the trade and industry of the town, the work of the London sculptor, William Calder Marshall

    Brilliant picture does the building credit – it always makes me think of Peter KAy which can’t be a bad thing

  • Thanks Sid, I suppose I just need Peter Kay on the steps to make the photo for you.
