ABC Wednesday - L is for Lord Street, Southport
Enter Southport on the A570 and at the end of the road is Lord Street. Facing you is the Scarisbrick Hotel.
Further along are three banks. The Old Bank looks very imposing. I don't know which bank once traded here, but it is now empty and available for lease. A rather non-descript modern building houses Barclays, followed by the elegant structure which is home to the Royal Bank of Scotland. Originally this would have been a branch of Williams & Glynns.
Lord Street is known for its shopping with designer clothes stores like Jaeger's.
Of course, it is also a place for people-watching,
or simply window-gazing.
Special events sometimes take place on Lord Street. This smooth operator was part of a European Food Festival.
A bonus photograph and links to some other Southport posts can be found at my entry on ABC Wednesday.
More L posts can be seen on the ABC Wednesday Anthology blog.
Others can be found via the ABC Wednesday with Mister Linky which carries a registry of participants.
