Saltaire lights up


The Saltaire Christmas lights were switched on at the beginning of December but I wasn't able to go to the event and have only recently found time to go out after dark to see them. There aren't many; just a tree in front of the Victoria Hall and some small trees on the shops up on Gordon Terrace. Quite tasteful though. We don't like too much bling around here! The floodlights are always lit at night, to show off the wonderful architecture and our four lions. 'Peace' looks very peaceful lying beside the Christmas tree. The tree must be 15 feet high but it seems dwarfed by the huge bulk of the Hall.

  3. Saltaire doesn't need bling -- it's already beautiful!

  4. Peace is lovely! I wonder if he was created by the same man who created the NYC library's lions. Saltaire is such a pretty place.
