Architectural details - Decorative dragons etc.

Some interesting details from a lens test earlier this year - unfortunately the sensor had some dirt on it for some of the shots, showing as a slightly blurry dark blob.

Comments

Edwardian and Victorian buildings have some amazing architectural features. They seemed to work on the principle of "more is more". The Art Deco plaque on the side of that building, however, is amazing.
There's a lot more of it, e.g. various plaques illustrating categories of goods sold by the store on the window frames. See this album for more:
