The Big Lamp

Brittania public house, South Shields

The Brittania

The Brittania public House opposite the Town Hall in South Shields has a very large and ornate glass lamp hanging outside of it, and for many years also had a statue of “Brittania” standing near the door, sadly it has now gone. This pub was my ‘local’ a long time ago, yet I have never seen this lamp lit.

So, I thought I’d try and recreate the effect using Photoshop, the picture was taken just after mid day.
