ST5973 : Waiting in vain

taken 7 years ago, near to Bristol, Great Britain

Waiting in vain
Waiting in vain
This is the Palace Hotel, previously the Gin Palace, and before that the Station Hotel. It was built speculatively in 1869 for the booming railway passenger trade brought locally by Bristol's new terminus. Sadly, the station was instead built at Temple Meads and so this ornate Victorian 'waiting room' never made that much money. Currently its owners have maintained the many decorative and elaborate features, especially the upper bar floor - which is actually parallel with the slope of the road outside!

See ST5973 : Time to stay? for the two supporting figures holding the roof up, and ST5973 : Gin Palace for the degree of the slope.
