As you can see from the photograph above and from today’s Featured Photo, this is a beautiful old building, but it is also a very special one as is explained in the library’s website –
The public may visit the library by applying online for a ticket the number of visitors is restricted and visits are expected to last no more than half an hour – though most will find that that is a sufficient allowance. Photographs are allowed and the visits are very popular.
I spent my time there taking photographs and so I didn’t really leave enough time to ask questions about what I was seeing to be able to explain the images that I came away with, so I’m going to let the photos show you the buildings beauty.
The photograph above is one that I took looking back. This view shows the statue of a woman and there is a clock above her head on the wall behind her. From the other direction, the statue is of a man and there is no clock.
Above is the long view looking back towards the woman’s statue.
I included the shot above to show you the beauty of the stained glass behind the woman’s statue.
I wandered downstairs to see what else might be open to visitors and saw this lovely vaulted ceiling.
We’ll stay in the Library for tomorrow, but we’ll see a more modern section.
Today’s Featured Photo shows the passageway that led to the long hall that is the subject of today’s photos.
