Snowy Saltaire


More snow photos... but no apologies. It's not every year that we get so much down here in the bottom of the valley, though it didn't last more than half a day before it melted in the rain. So pretty though, and it completely transforms the familiar views around the village. Above is Albert Terrace, the cobbled street, brightened and lightened by the snow.


The corner of Amelia Street, where it joins Albert Terrace, has an even more timeless air in this weather. Amelia was Sir Titus Salt's eldest daughter, who acted as his personal secretary until she married in 1873.  


The lion statues all had a little covering of snow, making them stand out against the backdrop. The building above is the old school, now part of Shipley College.

  2. I particularly like that first photo, the vertical accents make it something special. I used to know someone called Amelia Street but I don't think she had a Saltaire connection. Never met Albert Terrace.

  9. Just a little dusting of snow goes a long way in your part of the world. All of your snow photos look like postcards or Christmas cards.
