I am so pleased to see this picture on the A&A site!

I come from Northampton and, although I don't live there anymore, I always try to visit the Town Hall (or Guildhall as we call it) whenever I return. My dad ran a plastering business there and always used to point out the large expanse of rendering that his own father applied to the east side of the Guildhall after the adjacent building was demolished. It isn't there anymore as a new extension has been built but, throughout my childhood, its upkeep always seemed to be a never-ending and arduous task.

Looking at the picture I can just see a scaffolding tower. Perhaps it is his?

it looks like authentic decoration, in the middle of centre, where you can look at with admiration. (: small, crumbly details are very cute!
