Dreaming of summer

I really rather like this thoughtful sign at B&Q, urging us to dream of summer - in case the real thing doesn't actually materialise.

First Street

Attractive sign for First Street, the new city centre neighbourhood in Manchester. The cut-outs allow you to glimpse the activity behind the metal sheeting, which has been decorated by summer rain.

Out and about

I've blogged before about the superb Victoria Baths in Manchester. A temple to exercise and cleanliness, the building is an orgy of green tiles and stained glass. To my delight, the last time I visited (to go to the excellent vintage fair) they had opened up some rooms I'd not seen before. This sign is on the door from the gentleman's first class pool (there were two classes of pool for the men - just one for the women!)
