Yesterday we had lunch in the newly restored Guildford Hotel.The heritage listed Guildford landmark built in 1886, just across from the railway station hence the title.. after
many a few ales a 'short stumble to the station', love it :) The hotel was all but destroyed in what was described as a 'suspicious' fire in 2008. The shell below was all that remained..
Reopening last month after a beautifully 'sensitive to it's history' restoration, complete with belvedere, originally added in a 1915 restoration, the Guildford Hotel is once again the hub of the Guildford community..
I'll show you some inside details tomorrow but suffice to say the original black and white shots of the hotel c1920 (guessing here) were one of my favourite features. One of these days I'm going to have a whole week of shooting in black and white.. if only the world wasn't so fabulously colourful :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...
