It’s a date

Anita’s from For the Love of blog Photo Challenge Amazing Stonework
A new photo challenge I found at Cee’s

I was walking around the nearest town to my place, Grafton, while waiting for my car repair. I have been taking photos of the tops of the buildings where there is a date of construction.
One of the oldest buildings is the Post Office. Constructed of sandstone it is quite a lovely building. I looked and looked and knew there must be a date on the front of the building somewhere.

It took a while but then I noticed on one part on the right hand side of a middle section

and the other part on the right hand side

Quite an imaginative architect and brilliant stonemason.

Circle

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel With Intent: Circle

At a concert recently in an old county hall where I spied a ceiling rose that has been there since early last century
