One stop shop
Plucked the ticket from the machine, took my seat on a red cloth tub settee and looked around, people’s voices echoing in this space that was built into our beautiful library that had been here for hundreds of years and which was merged with this new building. I can still see some of the old building, the beautiful oak surround over what used cover two oak doors with brass handles that were worn with the use of hundreds and thousands of hands over the years. This part of the building has no charm, yet you can feel the “hush” of the old library swirling in the atmosphere. If I close my eyes I can almost smell the old leather and books.
It’s such a shame these buildings are decimated in this way through lack of use, modern technology has a lot to answer to
