Torquay Harbour - The Strand
Torquay Harbour - The Strand
A view across the heart of Torquay town - the part around the inner harbour. The main street along the harbour side is called the Strand The view also capatures the distinctive feature of the terrace of Victorian town-houses, now mostly offices, on the road known appropriately as The Terrace.

Can you see how the buildings follow the line of the contours of the land which gives the building their distinctive curved appearance?
