Shopping on a Wet Afternoon
The black cloud highlights the dome of Nottingham's Council House. It was built in 1926 and replaced an older, but similar building. The council offices are on the first floor, while underneath, a number of shops are situated. On the sides of the building you can still make out the name of Burtons. Not the mens clothing chain, but a high class grocer, similar to Fortum & Mason's, which closed in about 1980. In the dome is a bell called Little John, which has a similar sound to Big Ben in London.
