Entrance, Victoria Hall

A bright, sunny day shows off the front entrance to Saltaire's Victoria Hall at its best. The Victoria Hall is one of the most important public buildings in Saltaire village. Completed in June 1871, it was originally known as the Saltaire Club and Institute, designed to be a social club and an educational facility at the heart of Sir Titus Salt's model village. It is still well-used by the local community for concerts, exhibitions, craft fairs and sales, weddings and all sorts of meetings and evening classes.

  2. There must be a large ballroom as well as meeting rooms. I will have a look at the other site.

  4. I think architecture like this is so regal. Don't see many new buildings coming up I can call regal.

    [Jenny - the red banana I tasted was not what I'd call pink, but I read that some do have a pinkish hue. :-) ]

  7. The site looks better Jenny.

    Blogger sets the size of the image but it can be changed. I'm not very technical either but if you Google 'blogger image size' you'll get the full scoop.

    I'm going to wait until I'm well rested before i try it.
