If Only Walls Could Talk

Earlier this year the hotel next to ours at Tenby caught fire and was burnt out.  It then had to be demolished for safety purposes but I believe plans are in hand to rebuild it in due course.

I always feel, when you see end walls like this, that if those walls could talk what a mixed picture of life they would tell us, particularly as these are the walls of hotel bedrooms!

I see walls like that here in Amsterdam from time to time, Brian, and feel exactly the same way! WOW! It's hard to fathom all you see in that wall's structure!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, unfortunately so many buildings are being knocked down these days, especially in the cities that this is a common site.
The same with the old bombed out homes from the war, Brian. I like the two dimentional view of various rooms just hanging in the air.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, your feelings are what caught my eye when I took this.
We're starting a genre here Brian. Bernie from Stoke and myself have both posted similar recently. They're very moving these hanging rooms - the walls remember so much.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, probably the whole of life has taken place in front of these walls.

Great shot Brian,every picture tells a storysmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, I wish I could hear some of the stories these walls could tell.
There have been quite a few sad buildings on SC recently. They do make great pictures. Excellent shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I wonder what the rebuild here will look like.
Very evocative of past lives/memories Brian.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, your comment is just what this situation made me think.

If only, Brian. You are so right. The people who have stayed there, those now passed away, the sights and stories.......

You've got me thinking now, and I love it when words and photographs do that to me. Wonderful
Brian Walbey: Hello Paul, perhaps one day you will see a shot like this, and your opening words here tell me you would certainly come up with an interesting story.

Yes, the transcripts would certainly make interesting reading; maybe best kept secret from one's usual partner!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I'm not really sure quite what you are suggesting!
