A few photos of Reading



 Taken the end of Jan on my phone


The original Reading Station building which was built in 1860, this was where the tickets were bought for the trains and also were the waiting rooms were. In 1989 a new station building was built on the site of the old South Eastern Station and the building above became redundant and sold off to be made into a public house. Last year it was refurbished and has recently been reopend as you see it now. 


Bit of a panoramic this showing the work going on with the plazas by the Kennet at the Orical in Reading. They are improveing the area for  concerts and shows that go on here


Last a view of St Mary's Church in the Butts from John Lewis second floor window

  9. Lovely photos! I think the one of the church is my favorite. Interesting that you once worked at the Mag Lab in Tallahassee. I worked in the Physics Department at FSU for many years and knew several of the scientists who worked at the lab.

  10. Oh i just dropped by because i saw your post about Reading, which touch a nerve. Your photos gave me a bit of information although i wished there are more photos in one post. In my younger years i assisted a visiting scientist in our lab, and he is from Univ of Reading, i wonder how he is now! I pray for him as i recall that time. To be back to the post, that last picture is lovely although a little bit eerie, which reminds me of the witches of old, hahaha. Thanks.
