Monochrome Moment: Trafalgar Square


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

This week's Monochrome Moment is a view looking upwards in Trafalgar Square.

Before any of our visitors from distant places start to be confused, I should point out that this is not the Trafalgar Square in the West End of London, but the Trafalgar Square in the West End of Ashton!

You won't find Nelson's column or the National Gallery here, but you will find Hugh Mason's statue and the Twelve Apostles.

This photograph looks up at the facade of "The Twelve Apostles", a terrace of twelve grand Victorian houses that makes up the south side of Trafalgar Square.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

  2. Very grand terraced houses, with all that decoration. Love the chimneys too - I'm very fond of different styles of chimney-pot.
