Urban Living

Another Lincoln photo today. This is Lincoln High street, though it is now pedestrianised, traffic many years ago used to travel along this road. I have even seen an old picture which shows a bus coming through the arch of the Stone Bow. The Stone Bow was a Guild Hall / Civic building at one time. Many an assignation has been sealed with a meeting under the Stone Bow clock!
The chap in dark clothing on the left was a street singer & rather a " high brow" one at that. He was singing things like " Bring him Home" from Les Miserables, " Funiculi Funicular" & "Nessun Dorma" etc. So in essence a typical City weekend scene.
Lovely shot, surpising that busses travelled that narrow road.

A lovely street scene, I love Lincoln, so historic. The young ones with the phones appear to be taking photos of you rather than the posh singer!

It looks very busy, so many people. There used to be a great hardware shop just down on the right of this picture many many years ago. Probably long gone now though.

@ludwigsdiana thank you Diana, it probably looks a bit narrower than it actually is, but it was a two way road.
@louannwarren Thank you Lou Ann, he was amazing, far too good for busking!
@milaniet Thank you Milanie
@suzanne234 think they were actually videoing him.
@fbailey Thank you.
@boatman137 Thank you Shirley.
@30pics4jackiesdiamond nah, videoing the singer.
@phil_sandford Thank you.
@lovingandsharing Thank you, shame they are unaware of their infamy!
@happysnaps Thank you, think they were videoing the singer - he was very good!
@rjb71 Thank you Richard for your fav & comment - made me laugh!
@beryl Thank you Beryl.
@onewing hardware shop long gone I would say. It's mainly clothes shops & card shops in the area you are indicating. I'm sure you would notice a lot of changes Babs.
