      I can hardly believe my eyes, does that building really still exist? There are some treasures out there waiting to be photographed! Hurry up, all you younger folk, and go publish a book or something!
      I used to be fascinated by wrought iron balconies( many a time did I escort my son on his trips , around Victoria coach station is where my fascination with these creations of beauty started) . Look forward to hearing from someone with similar ideas! All the best, Linde

        I’m sure I have some pictures featuring wrought iron balconies.

        Re Victoria Coach Station. Do you have a bus and coach enthusiast in your family ?

          Not so much now, John, more non car owners! If you do come across some wrought iron work, not exclusively balconies, please let me know!
          For anyone visiting Cologne in the near future, I can recommend the most beautiful wrought iron fountain, featuring among other things the characters from the fairy tale ‘The elves and the shoemaker’ , Die Heinzelmaennchen von Koeln in good German.
          It is a city well worth exploring ( I don’t get paid for this, by the way! Only joking. ) wish I could still travel, as I used to! Bet others have said that too. All the best, Linde
