Not much of a view from inside...
This shot just about sums up my weekend as far as my reporting on the rest of the Saltaire Arts Trail went! For much of the time I was inside, busy chatting to people and keeping an eye on our exhibition at St Peter's. I did try and find time to venture out - but everytime I went out it rained and it was so dark and grey that none of the photos I took came out well. Furthermore, the Open Houses in Saltaire (which, being Saltaire houses, are mostly quite small inside) were so popular that they were packed with folk. Even when you managed to get inside you could barely see the exhibits for bodies! That seemed to be my experience anyway.
This was the view through the window at Number 19 and as far as I can remember, the exhibits here were quite nice.... I think one was a teatowel that said "I must not hang my washing in the street", which long-time readers of my blog will remember was one of the rules that Sir Titus Salt insisted upon. See ... I'm hopeless. Sorry! Martin at 'Bradford, my town' has a much better series of photos and reports than I. Check his out, several days starting from the link I've given. I even missed another photography exhibition in Salts Mill roof space - didn't even know that was on!
