A hint of Venice

The wonderful Italianate tower of the New Mill is modelled on the campanile of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice. Unreasonably decorative for its purpose, we can only assume that its designer wished to enhance the view along Victoria Road. Whenever I catch a glimpse of it, it lifts my spirits.
