On my first visit to the bluestone that belongs to the Charitable Organisation Deaf Children Australia I was taken on a tour and I was taken up to the tower. You have seen the tower before, in this image.
It is at the top of the bluestone building. I also took some photos inside it and today I thought I would show you those. I do hope to get more and I do hope that in the near future I will get to start playing more with the photos. The Manchester Unity Building is taking up much of my time and I hope that I can get it all done and finished soon, not that I mind, I have loved the experience.
This is part of the first view you see as you go up the creaky stairs. This part of the building has had almost nothing done to it and you get to see how it really was. You also get a great view of the surrounds up there, though I didn’t photograph it while I was there. Next time.
This is looking straight up. I was told I could go up the ladder, but I declined. It was a rather hot day and I didn’t much like the idea. I was told by Neil last week that he has been up in there, and in there you can see the slate tiles of the roof and they have been written all over with names from the children who have climbed up in there. I love the way children have been leaving their names everywhere for at least one hundred and fifty years, I always thought it was a fairly new thing.
Neil wasn’t sure if the tower would be restored as part of the restoration program, but I hope it is. It is such a lovely space and a wonderful spot to see all around.

Postcards for sale
I have started getting some of my images printed as postcards. I thought they might be something nice that people might be interested in purchasing. I thought I would sell them for $4 each for Australian customers and $5 each for international customers, which would include postage.
So far I have only had three printed and I have been so surprised at how great they look. I got one from Lorne done, and two from the Manchester Building done. I will start a new page on my website so if anyone who follows me would like to purchase, one or three then they can.
