Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 26: Moffat

On our trip we went down south but stopped for a break at Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway.

Down a side street and turning right I found this. Built in 1932, squarely in the Art Deco era.

On the main street as you leave heading west/south is what looks like a former garage which has Art Deco features in the stepping on the roofline.

Art Deco style Former Garage?

Moffat’s most famous landmark, though, is this statue of a ram – due to the importance of sheep farming in the area.

    The curved corner is a good Art Deco indicator.

    When I learn to use my digital camera and load inages into my computer, I’ll send along some pix of some out-of-the way bungalows in my neighborhood.

    Is it possible to attach pic files?

    “The curved corner is a good Art Deco indicator.”

    My photo is probably from a bad viewpoint for that, Denis. I was trying to avoid a sign for a business further down the side street. I’ll check it out next time I’m down but I remember the corner as angled rather than rounded.

    “Is it possible to attach pic files?”

    I think so – unless my spam filter sifts them out.
