Breakfast, Redruth 1890 and Now and Stained Glass

22 Nov

A delicious breakfast this morning consisted of eggy bread with blueberries, toasted almonds and creme fraiche with maple syrup for the lovely  Mr S and with ginger syrup for me.We were in town this evening and photographed this street painting of Redruth in 1890 and took almost the same shot this evening. You can see the clock tower in both photos.

The lights were on in a house on our road this evening highlighting a stained glass window that I have  not noticed before.

    Well at the height of mining wealth this was apparently the richest street in Europe. It’s hard to believe but the Inland festival I think had researched this fact.

      Yes, I think it is – beaten egg with a little cream and some vanilla , the bread soaked in this mix and then fried in a little butter. Is that French toast? 🙂
