Ange doesn't know what she is missing...
Bill Phillips: Or perhaps she does
Well that makes for a very cool abstract Bill!
Bill Phillips: Why it is there is a total mystery as it does nothing for the building
a very cool pattern in this one Bill... nicely framed....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Peter
Modern abstract building art
Bill Phillips: It does nothing for the building Shane

Hmmm- Marks and Spencers are omnipresent in British towns - but why not in (continental) 'Europe'?
Bill Phillips: Perhaps you have more sense Philine

The things you see when you're sitting down in one of Droitwich's wide & pleasing boulevards!
Bill Phillips: You would need good eyesight as this is in Worcester
Rubbish, going down hill fast now as usual.
Bill Phillips: Pleased you are enjoying this series Michael

More inspiring than anything in the shop!
Bill Phillips: True. I actually bought a pair of trousers in there. They had a big label with a Union Flag proclaiming the permanence of the crease...a British invention. Sadly the actual trousers were made in Cambodia
Boring decoration as it does not decorate in my mind.
Bill Phillips: It also ruins the front of what was once a handsome building.
Nothing is above m&s...
Bill Phillips: It has never been the same since they stopped making stuff in the UK and labelling it St Michael. (Who is, of course, the patron saint of underpants)

Looks like some completely pointles piece of decoration, the cost of which will be borne my M&S customers in the form of higher prices. It does look good like this, though.
Bill Phillips: I think you have summed it up rather well Alan.
Putting the art in urban Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I suppose you could say that John...well you just did smile
Ladies of a certain age would say M&S would do better to spend there money on sensible dress designers than strange looking things like this.
Bill Phillips: The marketing people would say it is designed to attract people into the store Brian. Assuming they could keep a straight face
This makes a lovely pattern Bill! Now which building is this?
Bill Phillips: This is M&S in Worcester Ronky
We used to have Marks & Spencer stores here in Canada, Bill, but they closed down all of them in the late '90's. I really liked their meat pies and other British delicacies.

Never saw this kind of decoration associated with the stores when they were in operation, though. Doesn't seem to fit their profile, somehow.
Bill Phillips: The food department is very popular and a number of M&S shops have opened here recently under the title Simply food. We believe there are plans to open one here in Droitwich which will be interesting.

This structure niether fits with M&S or with the building it has been stuck on

Great abstract Bill
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Anne
Amazing what can be seen from a bench Bill!
Bill Phillips: I could do a whole series from Worcester benches Richard

Were you whiling away the time, Bill?
Bill Phillips: I was indeed Lisl. Willie the Whiler they call me
Blue geometry--I like!
Bill Phillips: I am very pleased you do Larry.
