Shelter


There are several of these shelters around the Marine Lake in SOuthport, they have been there for longer than I can remember, perhaps now looking a bit the worse for wear after many years of use but you still see people eating lunch and sleeping in them during the summer season.

Plenty of ways to get out of the weather what more do you need
Les Auld: Thanks Zed, and you do need some shelter from the wind on the coast here.
I love these old Victorian/Edwardian? Shelters.

Nicely processed for this lovely old shelter...I have sat in many of them in my time. Good one Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ronald, I suspect I have seen a few as well over the years.
Nice old shelter Les, no doubt a haven for the courting couples in the evenings.

These shelters were really well built, to look "nice" and serve a purpose. I wonder sometimes how much longer they'll be around.
Les Auld: There is a move to restore them here in Southport Ellie so for a while yet. Thanks for the comment.
