Money and Building

As a prompt for a photo, 'Money' really stumped me. Eventually I went with a menu with prices on it.
This is the front door of a small shop near the town centre. I remember reading some writing advice once, that said trying to write a character's accent is never a good idea, but this is not accent, this is dialect. This is a shop that is playing towards local identity, not only in the menu but also in the paintwork - black and white being the colours of Newcastle United.

And this picture of building work going on was taken near St James, the ground belonging to that football club. I suspect when it is finished this building will tower over the pub called 'The Strawberry'.
