fifth floor . . . .

What is on the pin board above my desk? . . . . well the following images are.  

I first saw this series of photographs in an exhibition at the Brighton Photo Biennial 2010.  The series was shot by Stephen King of Lewis’s Department Store, an iconic Liverpool landmark that traded for over 150 years.  
"It housed three restaurants as well as a hair salon and was once a bustling hive of activity filled with staff and customers who recognised it as the epitome of leisure, style and shopping. It closed to the public in the 1980s. What remains is an evocative space complete with original period fixtures and fittings from the 50s, 60s and 1970s." 

The colours are simply fantastic . . .
