Photos from Saltaire

Some things I photographed during a recent visit to Saltaire in Yorkshire...
(Brief historical note for those who may be interested - Saltaire is a model village which was built for the textile industry during the first Industrial Revolution - 1850's-ish?)
 
 Ceramic vases on display in Salts Mill because they were so beautiful...
  This portrait from the David Hockney exhibition because it touched me ... and his "Cubist postbox" because it made me smile!
This unusual old church that I loved because of it's shape ...

And some of the many white lilies whose scent was everywhere
