Picture Framers, Old Fascia on Curzon Street

This building has been a fast food place for ages. As most fast food places do, it changes name quite often. It was nice to catch the old fascia exposed mid-change, and see what used to be there.

Oink the Water Buffalo
Chilling on a Sunday at his home on Haslams Lane. To answer Emma’s question, he really is called Oink. He grew up with pigs, and maybe even considers himself one…albeit with giantism.
