The Greystone Hotel is currently closed on Miami South Beach for refurbishment, but I managed to view an original postcard of the hotel during one of my visits to the Wolfsonian Museum archive. -

Amazing tour of Miami Art Deco district this morning by Miami Design Preservation League guide, Maureen, and a visit to their fascinating Art Deco museum. Visited lobbies and rooftops, and so much history of the social situations and people that brought art deco to Miami, and those that preserved it in the 1980s.

A fascinating morning looking at items related to The Tetley history @TheBrotherton library in Leeds. Such a stunning 1930s building- so lovely to revisit after many years.

Looking for a last minute Christmas present? I still have a few copies available of the Limited edition print 'The Sea Breeze was the Cure' available on my online shop.

Giclee print on matt etching paper, A3 (42cm x 29cm), they are from a limited edition of 50.

The print was made in response to research into the Rothesay Pavilion on the West Coast of Scotland, built in 1938. The title comes from a passage in the novel Sandition, by Jane Austen, where she writes about how theseaside can cure any known health ailment. Link to online shop in Instagram bio.

Starting the week off with a shot of one of my favourite buildings. The cantilevered stairwell at The Midland Hotel in Morecambe, designed in 1933 by architect Oliver Hill. With a medallion mural at the top of this stairwell by the controversial Eric Gill, the stairway has been called the 'stairway to heaven'.

One of my drawings for a new work 'A Sun Curtain for Arthur Towle', which will be included in a solo project at In Certain Places, Preston. The work draws from various stairwells in The Midland Hotel Morecambe. Arthur Towle was London Midland Scottish Railway companies Controller, who was responsible for commissioning the modernist hotel and overseeing all costs, design and works, including signing off the sun curtains to protect the interiors from the coastal sun.

Oh to be relaxing in this amazing space right now.... The original cocktail lounge at The Midland Hotel, Morecambe in 1933, when it opened, designed by architect Oliver Hill, who closely over saw all of the interiors and furnishings.

I am really pleased to have one of my photographs of Rothesay Pavilion included in their Photography Exhibition, as part of their Closing Weekend celebrations, before their redevelopment begins.  The competition is to be judged by the legendary Martin Parr - exciting!  The photograph above is of the opening stairwell, in the bottom left corner you can see their terrazzo floor, a common method for coloured and patterned floors in public buildings in the 1930s. @rothesaypavilion
