Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street.

The broom at 187 Walking through the urban environment the seemingly normal assortment of rubbish or objects can make an image that bit more interesting. This was taken in August, but guess who forgot to bring in the Christmas lights? Oh yes, a small tip if you’re adding noise to an image. You’ll need to do it twice.
