Robin at large

Queen's Cross

This turned into something of an emergency Blip. It was raining quite hard and looked set to continue. So instead of searching the neighbourhood for anything more interesting, I had better get a shot of whatever is in front of me and head for cover.

So much street furniture. I did eliminate a street lamp, but getting rid of everything else was too much work for what is a not terribly exciting photograph. The building (now a bank) was at one time the largest private residence in Aberdeen. I believe it was also a pub at some point. Here is a link to an old photograph taken at approximately the same place, before Queen Victoria arrived. The link does not quite work - on the Silver City site select “Images by Place” then “Queen’s Cross”. It is the second photo down on the right side of the page.
