Bear Steps, Shrewsbury

This is one of a number of drawings of Shrewsbury buildings that my uncle, Eddie Parker, gave to my mother many years ago, and which she passed on to me. This one, looking down Fish Street, shows the Bear Steps with the spire of St. Alkmund’s church and the tower of St. Julian’s.

It’s not a view that looks very different today as this fairly indifferent photograph from December 2007 indicates (I haven’t adjusted for levels, contrast, parallax etc. – I’m not trying for a prizewinner on this occasion!)
