Sure!

The servants would piggy-back the owners and their guests to the top floor balconies for canapes.
Bill Phillips: The owners and guests would not be seen dead here Ray
just a wonderful pov Bill... superb framing and light....petersmile
Bill Phillips: That is very nice of you to say so Peter
You were in the right place then...smile Good shot,Bill.
Bill Phillips: I know my place Frank. I am sure my ancestors were servants as I always feel more at home below stairs in these great houses

These stairs certainly were for the lower classes but the gentry have helpfully provided bannisters to prevent them, and more importantly the precious silverware, falling down several floors
Bill Phillips: The ruling classes have always looked after themselves
Great point of view Bill, Chris has summed it up nicely.
Bill Phillips: Indeed he has Scotia grin

If you had included the bottom of the banister Mr Lions I would have given you ten out of ten. Even the border ( perhaps a touch too thin) serves it well. Please don't morph completely into Blackdog. Please bring back the yuk borders and the over twiddled pictures.
Bill Phillips: No excuse for the lack of bannister as it was hardly going anywhere so I had time to do a proper job. Fear not plenty of garish to come
Your place would of been the coal cellar, another black hole.
Bill Phillips: You would not have been let in to the house at all

Looks good in this light. Another effective use of b&w. I can just images Mr Hudson coming up and down these with Mrs Bridges in the kitchen.
Bill Phillips: I never watched upstairs downstairs but I can imagine what you mean...wasn't he in the Professionals?
I think you are right, there, Bill - they look pretty utilitarian.
Bill Phillips: Hardly designed for a grand Entrance Tom
Certainly Bill! Great POV.
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Richard

I always like a good spiral staircase in B&W. Quality.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Mike smile
stairs are a must...in good photography!
Bill Phillips: Standard stuff JC
Nice shot of the angles.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary, i nearly cricked my neck taking this grin
Definitely not posh enough for the hoi polloi.
Bill Phillips: Peasant only Brian

This had the potential to be a good snap Billiam.
Bill Phillips: Well at least it had the potential comrade
