Some of you want more of these 'Living Advent Calendar' windows! Each year different people (to a large extent anyway) participate, which is why it's such fun hunting for the windows. You never know where the next one will appear.
The window at 68 Victoria Road this year shows this striking portrait of one of the stone lions that sits just outside the Victoria Hall, guarding the centre of Saltaire. There are four lions - and I think this is the one called 'Determination'. I showed photos of all four of them in a post in the early days of my blog (see here). I am amazed at the skill and imagination shown by those who decorate these windows. I'd never have thought of doing that.
