John Foster’s Almshouses

So many of you were interested in yesterdays picture for ‘stone’ that I felt I had to show you a little more of the building.


Aren’t they pretty? And thanks to Nikki for adding this link to Facebook,

Travel Theme: Stone

I was wandering through the streets in the old part of Bristol today with some friends and we came across some pretty almshouses. The were behind closed gates so it was difficult to get a good view but these stone carvings were set in the brick on the first floor. They are the Magi, carrying their gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrhh.

I thought they were perfect for Ailsa’s challenge this week.
