At the beginning of the year we were in Seville, Spain, on a mini holiday. On our first afternoon we explored the city and came across Plaza de Espana. A beautiful, semi circular open courtyard with lake, bridges and fountain, surrounded by an ornate building. Underneath the arches were tiled walls and benches representing each province of Spain.

The only one that I took a close up photo of, was the region of Salamanca.

Salamanca Place here in Hobart is a open plaza surrounded by Victorian sandstone warehouses and a shipping wharf. It is named after the battle in 1812 in the Spanish province.

This past weekend, we went to a motor show at the wharf at Salamanca. Amongst all the cars was this original bench seat.

These very different benches with unusual details are my contribution to Jude’s bench series challenge at https://smallbluegreenwords.wordpress.com/2015/07/26/bench-series-30/
