DECAYING GRANDUER

By hobbo
I became quite sad when a I spotted this beautiful Georgian Fanlight on an about to be demolished house in Leamington Spa.

Sad because, as a long retired carpenter joiner I know just how much skill, care and craftsmanship went into the making of it, long ago in a traditional Joinery workshop, where all timber was sawn, then planed up and shaped via hand tools.

This Fanlight is a comparatively simple one, but beautiful nevertheless.........note too the beautiful Georgian Glass with all its original surface blemishes and wrinkles......it has lasted intact all these years.....soon to be smashed up without a second thought.

As a furniture maker and woodworker, I am with you. And, in a perverse way, there is something beautiful about houses, barns, cars, boats p, etc., as they decay and return to the earth

So beautiful, the workmanship was so much better than it is now. It is sad that it couldn't be rescued.
