'Faded Glory' is a set of 9 Englands Glory matchboxes which depict signifcant buildings from my childhood, in the hometown of Wolverhampton. These places have now fallen on bad times, closed down or in disrepair. These buildings had a special significance when I was growing up; The Beaties Department Store visited many times with my Nan and sister. It was a special occasion visiting the store, the toilets were called parlour rooms and my nan often treated me to a scone and a strawberry milkshake in the cafe. It's sad to think that these places don't exist anymore.
