Council Waste

In days of yore when town councils could raise their own taxes without interference from a very fat man in Whitehall it was considered essential that every last detail of the council's main building, the Guildhall, should reflect the greater glory of the city of Hull. So it came about that even the very drain pipes had a cast iron triple crowned putto to show the world what a true city of culture it once thought it was. 

The weekend in black and white is here.


  1. Lovely contribution for the b&w theme!

  2. Great ornate decoration, and a fine photo.

  3. I imagine the person who put this together appreciated the business!

  4. I am enjoying your fine photograph and your acerbic comment about council waste. Those cast drain pipe collectors would just look silly on my house.
