Barmouth Bridge in Silhouette

My choice of desktop wallpaper continues this week’s theme of nautical(ish) photos from last summer’s holiday in North Wales.

It had been gloomy during the morning when I’d headed out to Transfynydd, but swinging back via Barmouth in the evening, the weather was beginning to pick up to offer some great shots of the bridge, harbour, and river traffic at Barmouth.

Windows Of The Coal Exchange

Mount Stuart Square, a designated conservation area since 1980, is home to something like 60 listed buildings. Some of these listed buildings are considered landmark buildings; some are not.

The crown jewel of Mount Stuart Square is the Coal Exchange, where the world’s first 1 million pound business transaction was conducted. Today, it’s a multi-purpose building, and a walk around the outside of it reveals that it has seen better times. These windows, at pavement level on the western side, suggest that not all of the building has faired well since the docks closed in the 1960’s … but don’t they make you curious about what’s inside? They sure make me curious!
