history

Days wandering

Posted on

You can be surprised when you go out and about for a wander. I went to visit my daughter in Derby the other day. It was such a joy seeing her and then we added to that by taking a good walk around parts of the city centre. I had few expectations of Derby as a city and was really surprised. We managed to find a whole raft of interesting little alleyways, the odd arcade, nice pubs, cafes and more – art shops included.

I have a love of places where history has added texture to what is around you, even better when that texture still has life and is felt and enjoyed.

Sometimes if you open the door to a new memory it will serve you for a long time. If that door and what surrounds it has a history placed well within the present it can mean something more.

roughened edges and home

Posted on

IMG02381-20150415-1613

It has been said so many times before…

–  there are the roughened edges of particular suburbs, they show that they are lived in and that there is effort being undertaken

– things are being done, life is lived, things go on, the small particles of history are made and in all of that the edges become a little roughened

– there is something other than the glossy, well polished and bright and within that there is something not only of value but with an aesthetic all of its own

1875 – it has a history and is still standing but is unused …

This school was built around the time of the the birth of my great grandfather – I still remember him. There were all sorts of tales told about him by my grandfather. For example, when he was a boy he used to have to hide in a tar barrel from the Factory Inspector because he was too young to work. His first job was assisting the butchers’ dray collecting old joints of meat which were suspended in vats of cider so as to help remove the acid, later he became a builder helping build local terraced houses. These times are not so far away from us.
