Two by two


It's time for another of Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar windows, I think.  This, the second window, is quite a contrast to the one I showed you first.  It's much more detailed, showing Noah's Ark with the animals going in two by two.  Very attractive and rather magical, I think this would appeal to children especially.  They'd be excited to discover all the different creatures - do you see the sea-horses?  The window can be found on Constance Street.  See my post of 2 December for an explanation of the Living Advent Calendar idea and a photo of the first window.

  1. Magical is indeed the word to describe this Advent window . . . It is my intention to stroll the streets of Saltaire and view all the Living Advent Calender, (and coincidentally walk off the Christmas dinner) round about the magical dusk time on Christmas Day.

  4. I found the sea horses! So much to look at in this window. It must be so pretty at night to come upon these. ~Lili
