I was in Alloa last week and found this beauty of an Art Deco building. It’s an absolute belter.
Wonderful rounded deco end pillars and canopy frontage here and the glazing hasn’t been destroyed. The building’s rendering is in need of attention though. This is what at first looked to be the rear of the building.
The left corner in the above photo.
This is the side of the building, to the left in the above photo. Note the blue/green brickwork on the uppermost windows and the typical 30s glazing. Nice balcony too. Pity about the satellite dish!
This is what I had come on first, though. The gable end has a nice curve and the projecting bay is good too.
Note the jazzy glazing here on the upper part of the lower floor windows. I couldn’t get far back enough to get the whole building in. My camera was also starting to become dodgy. I couldn’t get a focus on the cartouche at the roofline and the exposure isn’t right. This part is occupied by Skills Development, Scotland.
This is to the left of the previous photo. Buick’s is a hardware shop.
Full circle. The Buick’s Hardware extension bit detracts somewhat.
