How do you like this?
I think it is probably British, but I’ve no idea where it was taken. I have another photo of these two people with their friends, I hope to do both in due course. I did do a version of the other one but wasn’t happy with it so want to rework it.
Isn’t that a curious structure on the roof? I presume it’s for taking tea in the open, but am not sure. Maybe it’s for looking at the sky at night, though I can’t make out if there’s a telescope there. Have you ever seen anything like it?
It’s obviously a hot day – not just because of the parasol, but because of how many windows are open!
I’ve been trying to track down the man’s insignia on his pocket, but haven’t had any luck. Any ideas? To me it looks like an A and an M overlapping each other. My husband thinks maybe a rowing club or some other sporting club, but I wonder if it’s a university, though it seems a bit too informal for that.
Click the photo a few times to see it larger and more clearly, as this is a smaller version (it’ll open in a new tab or new window so you can get back to this post more easily).
This photo is a work in progress. I still have the restoration to do and a lot of tidying up of the colours and a fair bit more colouring, not least the tables, and the building in the background and the paintwork.
