Kingsbury bristol- suburb of imagination.

I think it was Bristol.  It might be York or perhaps Durham with little alleys going down to the river.  The two houses with the mosaic gardens and the mosaic walls depicting willowy maidens in the Arts and Crafts rational dress style. The hillside shops the dark stone alley running down to the river, the steep hillside, the forked station road, the dereliction.  Our life experiences conspire to build suburbs of imagination and dreams. Historical enough but also and up to date, with spacious garden surrounded dwellings for a dignified life, but with the bustle of the town.

No pics- it doesn't exist. But I have added a picture of beauty in suburbia.
