Andrews

By TrevBatWCC    
One of the several enamel signs at Goathland station, which seem to blend and fit in well with all the pretty flowers that line the platforms. V2 shows the wider view and looking down from the footbridge.

Techie stuff: see Exif

They don't make adverts like that any more. Or railway stations. More's the pity. Thanks for a very gentle stroll down Memory Lane.

These old metal signs bring back so many memories from shall we say my formative years, and make such excellent studies now with the general weathering that has taken place over the decades.
I particularly like the close-up in V 1 where the fresh new vegetation acts in contrast with the old advent sign.

gosh I used to love the tase of that stuff..... never seem to see it any more, a great blast from the past. I also like the downward pov of v2 and such clean lines in this one, both work well

Gently and genteel-ly decaying, these old signs are so visually rewarding especially when integrated into a pleasing background. Well-seen and composed, a delightful image. I like the perspective of V2, too.

Hi Trevor, Goathland and the ride on the Steam Trains is one of my favourite places. I sat on that seat last year..
Pickering station has some good signs too. I think I photographed one for Virol.. Hope you are well.

Andrews Liver Salts was my sure fire cure for a hangover back in the 70s Trev.
Then I got married and my wife has been my cure ever since as she does not allow me to have one !!
Good shots.
