Little dears



Window number 8 of Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar has two delightfully happy children (perhaps residents of the house?) riding on a reindeer that bears more than a passing resemblance to the alpaca statue in Roberts Park. Clever... Alpacas are one of the village's emblems. Sir Titus Salt made his fortune when he worked out how to turn alpaca wool into lustrous cloth.

  1. Hi Jenny - I hadn't realised Titus Salt made his fortune from Alpacas - so interesting! Brilliant art work though, and a very excellent photo ... lovely - cheers Hilary

  2. This has a cute, whimsical feel to it.

  3. This one is perfect in a couple of ways, especially if those are intended to be the children of the house.
