My kind of sign!!! Below mosaics from the National Gallery floor...worth a close view. Please click on the smaller photos to see a complete version.
Above, two of the "The Modern Virtues" mosaics laid in 1952 by Russian-born artist Boris Anrep (1885-1969), a member of the Bloomsbury group, in the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. 'Wonder' is, of course, Alice of Wonderland fame, and 'Defiance' is Sir Winston Churchill.
Above left, warning signs to tourists at the Shugborough Estate, and another, right, at Harewood where the international drought upset the ferry. Below, one of the many bucolic shots I took as we drove around the rural countryside from stately home to stately home.
Below, a unique umbrella stand. Whatever.
