Spring flowers

I found some spring flowers for you. Not wild ones, but a colourful display right in the centre of town.

That’s Harry Schneider the ironmaster with his back to us, glowering at his bitter rival Jimmy Ramsden further down Duke Street. And, of course, that most priapic of Victorian town halls, a worthy rival to those of Manchester and Leeds and proof that nineteenth-century Barrow, as a young upstart, punched way above its weight.
