Here's another lovely Stafford building, the gothic cottage on White Lion Street.

At the moment, it's being restored!

Hello,

A little update, here's a 1920's (I think), semi-detached.
This one includes a tiny cat peering from one of the windows, but you'll have to look very close to see him!

For those curious types, the answer to where the house is, is on my FaceBook and Twitter pages.

So, it's been a little while since I posted.
I've been busy on buildings that are none Stafford based, sorry.

Here's a building you'll all recognise, the signage (handwritten, which are my favourite) is a dead giveaway!

I think they're moving soon, I'm sure someone will soon move in here though, location location location!

Perhaps Brian's Wallpapers might come back - and paint it bright blue again?
Brian? That must have been some time ago, is Brian still with us?
It's a big building to fill, but I'm sure some business' will be falling over themselves to set up shop here, a perfect and great location.
Aslong as the handwritten signage is kept!

It was there in the late '70s, early '80s - The whole building was painted bright blue.

It was Woolworth's in a previous life, too.

It's been a little while, I know.

I've updated my profile picture, now homesandlines' official logo.
...for now.

Also, here's a very recognisable Stafford building, and not just for the name above the shop front.

The lovely Church Lane Antiques!

This shows someones (A4 and mounted) home illustration, just before it's placed in the post, to them.

Sorry, no points for guessing whereabouts in Stafford, it is!

If you haven't already, and have the chance and when you're in Lichfield, then pop along to Western range on Cathedral Close, Lichfield. In the illustration, the archway to the right of the front door, leads to Erasmus (gramps to Charles) Darwin's house and a musuem. It's directly opposite the breath taking Lichfield Cathedral.

By the way @Gramaisc, St Leonard's School is in hand, I've taken steps to add it to the homesandlines family!

Oh boy, though a lovely Stafford building, it sure is highly detailed, hope to do it justice.

Hello,
Does anyone know, or care to guess, the whereabouts of this building, in Stafford?

Along Beaconside, near the business park, opposite Gladstone Way, there's a small lane. Follow that lane and you'll find a cluster of lovely buildings, there!

Very tough, I know, sorry.

Worth going this way, for the walk up the hill and over looking Stafford.

Hi,

It's been a little while!

Before I colour, add the street name, mount and frame this one, anyone guess/know the location of this beautiful home?
