[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grand theatre, as far as I know...only an old pub which is now derelict.
I'm aware most people on this site usually like nice pretty photos, but I'm often attracted to the unusual or ugly. Such as derelict buildings. I couldn't get inside the building so I've had to make do with the outside only. I wanted to show the quality of the work while not making it too pretty.
I believe the pub was famous for its strong cider and it was only sold to the known customers.

I love new things... once they have become old. The ornate details of the building coupled with the peeling paint, the boards up under the arch, the missing piece of the ledge, and the plants growing from the dirt that has accumulated over the years all combine to make an interesting scene. It stirs the emotions, in that it causes one to imagine the splendor that this building once had, and also to wonder what the future of this building might be. The depth of focus captures much here. Good eye.

Bom dia Bob,
"The detail is king" is what you evidence that flawless picture.
There is little more to say about this great picture.

Hello Bob,
This is quite a frustrating image as, like you, one wants to get into the picture some more and into the building. I also fully concur with Terry's critique above.

Wonderful image with so much history I suppose. Some pictures takes you back in time.
