Bricks and mortar - then a pint.

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 28 September 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

An HDR made in one of the very few narrow little alleys that you might find in South Shields.
The building at the end is Kirkpatrick's, a popular bar (named after John Simpson Kirkpatrick) , which in its former life was the Marine School in Ocean Road founded by Dr. Winterbottom.
