The ties that bind

19 Feb

The former warehouse now restaurant close by Princes Quay has an unusual large array of structural ties holding it together.
The weekend in black and white is here.

    We see similar ties all over southern California, especially in older brick buildings. Here their purposes is to hold the building together during an earthquake.

    Hull was once the epicentre of an earthquake. It was in 1703 and measured about 4,although who measured I'm not sure. I think heavy traffic will do more harm in these parts.
