The Belle Shore Apartment Hotel

Built in 1929, this Art Deco apartment hotel is located in the Bryn Mawr Historic District at Bryn Mawr and Winthrop Avenues.  It certainly is a beauty, isn’t it?  I love all the different glazed terracotta tiles used in its facade!

While walking down Bryn Mawr one sunny day recently, I took a few more-detailed images.

While working with these two shots, I thought it would be nice to see what they would look like now if I had been able to take them back in the early 1930s.  So…I ‘played’ and came up with some fine sepia tone prints, which look as if they might have been hidden away in an old shoe box on the closet shelf.

I’m not very pretty…

…but I would love to play with someone…anyone?

Left Behind

A gloomy day…

…brings out the ‘housekeeping’ in me!  That’s what I’ve been doing all day…bathroom, floors, dusting, little repair jobs.  The skies were not quite like this but…erm, you get the picture (yes, pun intended!)!
