Captive balloon, The "English Riviera", Torquay
Captive balloon, The "English Riviera", Torquay
The captive balloon, with its advertisement for the "English Riviera" is a controversial presence on the sea front near Torre Abbey. What is certain is that Torre Abbey, nearby, will continue to exist long after this bauble, associated with the current mayor of Torquay, has disappeared. Some locals prefer the concrete flower pot in the foreground.
