Somebody was asking about the decorative mouldings on houses in Parade Street. Here’s a closer look. This one has had one of the flowers picked out but it’s the only one, I think.

I don’t know of any other Barrow street that has these, and I don’t know the significance of them in this particular street. Perhaps somebody – Bill perhaps? – will offer some enlightenment.

  1. I love these moulding details and the brick insets. The way that they’ve aged is wonderful.

  2. What period would have these buildings have been built, may I ask?
