Vintage Bath

This image of the London Road has been heavily photoshopped but gives an interesting glimpse into what Bath must have been like 100 years ago (if you remove the cars!).

Welsh Wales

Apologies for all you out there. We realise that we have been extremely tardy in keeping up the daily element of our blog of late. Several reasons... Firstly I (Emma) passed all responsibility for the upkeep of our blog to him (Tom) and look what happens? And secondly we have been away.

But we have been back for two weeks so no good reason except we have been very busy! These shots show the wondrous Portmeirion in North Wales. The Prisoner was filmed here and it was designed and built by Clough Williams-Ellis. An Italianate confection, this village perches on the edge of the beautiful and wild Snowdonia national park. We are in love with this part of the world and are returning there very soon. In the meanwhile we will catch up with some great shots of Bath in the summer, complete with masses of visitors and traffic, but still beautiful and Georgian! We hope you are all well and thriving out there in the blogosphere! Do come and say hello!

Gruesome Stone Figure

This ugly looking fellow was photographed by my father whilst on a visit to Bath. The below image gives it a bit more context but id love to know where the figure came from and where it is going next. We will be using some more of my dads working over the coming weeks as he took some great images of Bath. More examples of his work can be found at Dawson Images.

The King William

The King William is perhaps one of my favourite pubs in Bath. It serves many a fine ale and has a friendly, laid backed atmosphere as well as servings some of the best food in town. It can be found on the busy London road, one of the main routes into Bath.

The Mysterious Pink Milk Float of Walcot Street

I see this strange vehicle every day as I wander down Walcot Street on my way to work. Quite what its purpose is I have yet to work out. Originally I thought it was something to do with the Bath Fringe Festival but that has been and gone, yet the milk float remains. I would love to hear peoples suggestions as to why it is this striking pink colour and has a sofa on the back!

Tour Bus

Love them or hate them, there is no getting away from these tour buses in Bath. I guess they are the scourge of every city which is visited by a lot of people. I personally don't like them as they seem to clog up the streets and slow the traffic down considerably. But then I don't begrudge our visitors a guided tour round the city so I suppose they are a fairly necessary evil! As you can see from the photo they don't blend in particularly well with the more sedate surroundings of Bath! I would prefer an old-fashioned double decker which I used to get to work on in London years ago!

Pulteney Bridge Flower Shop

Is'nt this flower amazing? I should know what it is but I don't! This flower shop occupies the best spot on the bridge. It has a wonderful view across the river towards Prior Park.
