Just a short post this time as I am about to head off to a big family gathering. Thought you might like to see a few more drawings which I have completed and posted over on the main website www.drawingthestreet.co.uk. I would be delighted if you would click over and have a look.
Before you head over, a few words about the Post Office on Market Place, Burslem, below. This was a project which the Burslem Regeneration Company and my former workplace, Horsley Huber Architects had a hand in reshaping together with the owner.
Although the reinstatement of the original window layout is a relatively small job in the building industry, I do have an idea of the background work that has gone on behind the scenes by all parties to make this happen, there is more than meets the eye!
That said, this building now looks so much better and you can really see the overall impact when you look at the street as a whole.
Moving down towards the west end of Market Place, there is a narrow gap, Market Passage where there is a faded mural.
I would never have noticed the Burslem Bear had I not drawn this! A sign of Burslem’s history…
That’s all for now, thanks for reading.
