Padstow - Cornwall - Signs - Almshouses

                     Today I am again continuing with the Padstow theme for the Signs meme.

 The above Signs all appear on the Almshouses in Padstow, Cornwall  
The Collins English Dictionary Definition of the noun Almshouse is a privately supported house offering accommodation to the aged or needy.

  1. I always like to find date stones on old buildings.

  2. the blue trim on the building and those fantastic windows kept me from looking at the signs.. ha ha... i do love stones and fancy windows.

  3. A great collection of signs. Well done Diane

  4. I love that last picture -- it goes on and on and on. Fun to research history by starting with the cornerstone.


Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
