    Thread to explore Art Deco examples - anything from Buildings , Gardens, Furniture, Ceramics, Jewellery etc

    This house has fascinated me for years but was screened from view by a massive Leylandi hedge until recently. Built in 1934 its one of the best examples of Art Deco locally
    Original windows were thin steel, painted green & a lot more elegant

    Zoom proved extremely useful as this is taken from well over ½ mile then cropped
    370mm equivalent zoom Hand held.

    A great idea to start an Art Deco thread. Can't help to re-post a Lighthouse shot but I will look out for others.

    Love art deco, Morocco has lots of it. Here's an old cinema from the time Sidi Ifni was a Spanish enclave called Santa Cruz de la Mar Pequeña. It's full of architectural gems like this, and probably my favourite town in Morocco.

    ^ Thanks
    never would have thought that Morocco could have Art Deco gems
    everyday is a learning day

    There is a small town in New Zealand which has its own version of Art Deco - looking forward to seeing some examples

    all over the place in the UK …… ordinary buildings ……. here is one from just down the road … Plaza theatre Romsey Hampshire

    Probably get knocked down in a few years to build some retirement apartments when a developer 'smells" money

    bit "shadowy" but C'est la vie - for the avoidance of doubt "showdowy" does not refer to any property developer …… it refers to the image

    Morning Rich, you have quite a lot of great "kit" there, maybe you should think about becoming a "collector"
