I wonder what might be hiding at the top of the stairs? Very dramatic shot. BJ

A reminder that we lived a very different life back then.

The steps do draw you in.
And, you again prove that original monochrome photo's are the best.

That's a perfect picture post card mono. It couldn't be in colour. A really timeless classic again.

Wonderful shot and makes me think back 30 years ago, wondering about the people who would have been climbing that stairway.

It hasn't changed much today! Sometimes we walk down from the hill to go to Verdi's for an ice cream treat!
