Photos from the famous East Midlands city, its surroundings and sometimes further afield

Following on from yesterday's picture, today's photo shows some of the Victorian houses that make up the Park Estate. The houses were built by rich Victorian businessmen who had made their money from such things as lace, textiles and trade. Today many of the houses are still owned by business people, including the fashion designer; Paul Smith. It is an interesting area to walk around, seeing all the different styles of houses & how they have been adapted for modern living.
