I found this building in the historic market town of Banbury- North Oxfordshire.. In its day it played a role as an important trading shop for mercants .. sadly over the years as business and lifestyles changed so have our needs.. Today an estrate agents.. I like how the town has kept up appearances of its historic past..

Indeed, the town that's best known for the 'Banbury Cross' displays its historic perspective... corn, cake and coal, in the same sign. Warm regards,

This is a very interesting old building restored faithfully to the original. I liked your composition and lighting management that produced pleasing color contrasts and impressive shadows on the facade of the building. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

The building looks very nice after the restoration. I like those signs corn , cake, coal and coke. Nice diagonal view with sharpness, colors and light management. Hope to see more from this place.

This weeks English lessons in China have the US textbook proclaiming that the British like to preserve historical areas & relics, so this is affirmation/confirmation. Good sharpness, framing & pov. Tfs!

Molto interessante la vecchia costruzione con le insegne rimaste ferme ai vecchi tempi.
Da un punto di vista fotografico il POV funziona molto bene, molto bella la luce che illumina la facciata esaltandone i colori. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio.

When I see this type buildings getting I a little bit nostalgia.
I see above the roof nets perhaps are people working at the roof.
You play nice with light and shadows.
Sharpness and clarity be lovely, nice done.
Nice presentation too. TFS.
