Trying to find a subject for the letter Z was always going to be difficult, the zoo no longer exists. My friend Tony belshaw suggested the paths in the St. Nicholas Gardens which form a Zig Zag. Starting with the iron railings in the foreground it created a perfect start to the composition. The building at the top of the piocture is the prresent Town Hall of Scarborough.
