Aspire to Blackpool

Have you noticed that the front page banner picture has been updated?  I had a lightbulb moment HA!

Never mind,  onto the featured picture today.  The Town Hall at it’s best and when it still had a spire.  A superb construction that looked over Blackpool until the 1960’s.  We have a lot of artwork relating to this grand building because it was always the focal point for the Illuminations and would be highly decorated each year.  One feature were these fantastic neon bells which adorned one side of the building.                PICS14 050   

Both these pieces were designed in the 1930’s by an outside company called  “Claudegen” prior to the Council employing an in-house designer.   Hope you like them as much as I do!
