Fireplace tiles


Back in Saltaire... Part of Salts Mill was once a residence and private office for Sir Titus Salt. No doubt he found it useful to stay there sometimes, rather than make the long journey back to his home near Halifax. I imagine there was a need to entertain visitors too. His quarters now house Saltaire's Tourist Information Centre and The Art Rooms studio and gallery but there are echoes of their history still visible. I was attracted by this old fireplace with its elegant Victorian tiles.

  2. Welcome back, jennyfreckles. Those tiles have a rather delicate pattern.
