I really like how the b&w captured the details of the street.
Chris: Thank you Hollie

If it rains so much there why is there a sunglass hut there
Chris: The irony of it eh!
Raining again... I am forming an impression of Droitwich...
Chris: I will not ask the nature of your impression Larry
Rain, Rain.
Go away.
Come again some other day.

Vintage makes a good point...
Chris: Mad isn't it

Chris: Everything gets destroyed by the constant rainidge Astrid

I guess that i had better pack a rain coat Chris....petersmile
Chris: I think you should do that Peter
When you come right down and think about it, Chris, it's quite amazing we've/they've learned to adapt! smile (LOL at Astrid.)
Chris: Some of them have webbed feet Ginnie

Oh, it is still heavily raining - such a lot of umbrellas instead of 'sunglasshut' (here it is sunny - but not "always sunny" as in Arizona) - I know this corner in Bath from a previous visit - Impson- T mson -SCHUH - a German word? Weather is always a subject in England as our English teacher Chris said.
Chris: The English constantly talk about the weather Philine,it helps break the ice when meeting strangers
T umbrella Friday
Chris: Indeed so J C

Most of these people seem to be heading towards Sunglass Hut; no doubt to stock up before heading to drier parts of the Empire such as northern England and Scotland. I like Messrs I. Mpson and T. Mpson's emporium.
Chris: The constant rain has washed part of their signidge onto the floor Alan

Just this our teacher said, too! And it would be a kind of politeness to speak about weather.
Chris: Your teacher is correct Philine

Do they hand out free umbrellas in Droitwich as a civil duty?

Only it is Bath.
Chris: It is Bath because Droitwich was under water at the time..
That woman on the left looks a bit shifty.....
Chris: It looks as if she has been told that Richard Trim is on the prowl..
Not a happy lady on the left, Chris. Love the missing letters on the shops name.
Chris: Depressing isn't it..
The subject on the left made me immediately think of an earlier time. Love this, Chris.
Chris: Thank you Mary
I note the women here all come with modest length skirts rather than trousers, that's quite refreshing.
Chris: They are in all probability foreigners Brian
The frowning lady on the left looks as if she could have stepped out of post war England, Chris.
Chris: That is what it looks like Bev

It seems that the Droitwichers like to steal letters.
Chris: It does Louis

Another great, in the moment capture, love the fact that despite the rain the street is still full of people
Chris: Maybe they like getting wet Robbyne!

The paving stones give the illusion of water flowing.
Interesting name changes for the shoe shop!
Chris: This could be evolution in action..

Or the effects of permanent wet

She doesn't look a 'happy bunny'
Chris: Reckon she'd look cute in a bunny suit?

Judy Garland seems well preserved, Chris.
Chris: She's been on the Droitwich sausage diet Ray
