More Art Deco Style in Rochdale

In November 2018 we visited Rochdale for the second time.

I photographed two more Deco style buildings.

Former King’s Cinema later converted to Bingo but that has also closed and the building is now in a sad state of neglect:-

Spotland Bridge. The unusual roofline, projecting beyond the slope of the roof, gives it the deco look:-

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 44 (iii): Montrose, Union Place

A thirties pair of semi-detacheds near to Links Park. Pity its windows have been replaced. Typical 1930s style otherwise.

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 62: Turriff

Turriff is a town in Aberdeenshire. We passed through it on our trip up north in October 2018 and stopped for a look around.

There were two buildings which had aspects of Art Deco.

Turriff Fish Shop/Bliss Gift & Flower Boutique. Horizontals, verticals, rule of three in windows. Decoration just below roof line:-

A much more borderline case. Grant Smith law practice. This may once have been a bank. It has that look:-

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 61: Huntly

I observed this school (Gordon’s School) while photographing Huntly’s War Memorial, so naturally had to take these as well.

Horizontals, verticals, flat roofs, square chimney, rounded corner:-

Art Deco School, Huntly

Rounded corner again and strong verticals:-

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 60: Inverurie

Inverurie is a town in Aberdeenshire.

The closest thing to Art Deco I saw there (and definitely 1930s in style) was the Gordon Highlander pub:-

Art Deco in Peterborough

We were in Peterborough in Sep 2018 to attend an antique fair. Cruising round the town centre the evening we arrived I found some Art Deco buildings.

Minor deco, brick-built:-

The Burton’s was hard to photograph due to trees in the way:-

This is situated on Pettycur Road almost at the bottom, near the harbour wall and opposite the car park. Lots of horizontals and verticals here. Rule of three in windows. Flat roofs.

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 59: Ladybank

Ladybank is a village in Fife only a few miles away from Son of the Rock Acres. It’s no longer on the direct road north to Dundee so we don’t often go there.

It does, though, have a 1930s garage, now Ladybank Tyres:-

It’s the stepped roofline that speaks for Deco:-

Apart from the different-sized doors there’s also a nice symmetry to it:-

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 58: Tillicoultry (ii)

In the same street as Devonvale Hall (Moss Road, Tillicoultry) there are lots of thirties semi-detached houses all with Deco styling.
