Hello, my name is James Russiello and I am now working in Enniscorthy, Belfast, New York, London, Omagh, Belfast, which is why this site has been retired for the past year plus. Last December, I graduated with distinction from the MSc in the Conservation of Historic Buildings programme at the University of Bath, but I’ll try to limit personal information here. If you like this site or have a conservation job needing to be filled, please contact me via this site.
All the side pages are still under construction, and the site in general is somewhat rushed. (Above photo by MUIM.)

Hi, this page is still a work in progress so enjoy the photos on the currently single operational page and mind the gap for this one. Cheers. Hey, if I ever create the page then I lose the comments. Oh no! How ’bout we compromise and you guess what we’re doing behind the man-dog. I’ll give you a hint, we had to wait until after we graduated. Thanks “JC” for ruining the contest. Follow up contest then: What did we do? And interestingly enough, don’t do this when you’re drinking.DSC05653

  1. Ja.mes, you really need to do something about this page! 😉

  2. Yes – do something about this page, Ja.mes. I like to know a little something about the bloggers whose blogs I read! 😉 Cheers!

  3. Yeah Ja.mes. Update yourself. And everyone else is winking so I will too. 😉

  4. Dude! You’re totally screwing with the dry ice freezer!

  5. Awkward. Is there a label I’m not seeing? Who told you? Follow up question: What did we do with said substance after graduation?

  6. Chem minor here. I know the chemistry building.

    You’re filling a soda bottle with dry ice to make it explode. Possibly. No. Because I did that before I graduated. But you’re doing SOMETHING that involves explosions.

  7. OK, yeah. then we chucked it into Sunset Lake but it took almost an hour for the dry ice to melt….much longer than us non-sciences had imagined. All the frogs, etc. had ample time to clear away.

  8. All the science-types expect it to happen quicker, too. We did that instead of Primal Scream one year, and spent about 20 minutes quivering with antici…..pation, convinced that it was going to explode the minute we let down our guard.

    And I’ve seen this experiment on TV shows, too, where the science-types believe the explosion will be instantaneous, and are disappointed to discover that they have to twiddle their thumbs for half an hour.

  9. The cool thing was that since we had all just graduated and were drinking the liquor stores before 9am eviction, everyone had a ton of fireworks. The whole time we were waiting, people were tripping fire works off and running every which way. Sometimes it was from headlights that could have been security, but since it was dark and the folks were wasted, most people were running from the fireworks. We forgot why we were there and were generally scared sh-tless when the bottle finally popped…made a mushroom cloud out of the water. The frogs were probably laughing their heads off at us.

  10. Well… I don’t know about “laughing”… but frogs and heads off sounds about right.

  11. JC, out of curiousity, do the Chemistry-types use the Dry Ice crusher for anything else? I could have sworn I smelled garlic in there.

  12. No idea. I always used to freak out when I smelled tomatoes and cheese in the middle of my organic chemistry lab, because I KNEW whatever substance I was isolating WAS NOT supposed to smell like Italian food. Turns out the chem professors always had a late lunch.

    And we definitely stored hot dogs in one of the basement refrigerators. I’ll cop to that.

  13. You have a very attractive eye ball!

  14. Hi James,
    I love your layout. I really like the tabs at the top of the page for your photo catagories. I thought I may open a wordpress account, but they only have 50 mb of storage. That would soon run out on a photo blog. Did you buy more space? If so How much?

  15. HEY!

    Where’s your PUNKIN’ HEAD?!?!

    Come ON…get this page UP…we need to know all about YOU!

  16. moved it to myPortraits page.
    will do shortly, it’ll prob be more about Bath tho…wouldn’t want people gettin’ the wrong idea that this is Bath, New York or Bath, PA Daily Photo.

  17. The Doric Columns from the from of Churchill House were taken from the site in a Gilpin skip under the supervision of a worker (who travelled with the load). This person has ‘hbg” on his high-visibility jacket and controls the traffic on the alterations to the road works.

  18. Thank you for a remarkable collection of Bath photos. I have scoured 30 pages of the ‘architecture’ photos looking for a photo of the arch or bridge that spans over a mews adjacent to one of the lesser known crescents to no avail. The bridge/arch connects two buildings. The view through/under the bridge/arch is one of the finest and least known architectural image in Bath. Could be Lansdown Crescent at Upper Lansdown Mews? Thanks for any insight.

  19. Chang,
    I believe you are thinking of Beckford’s arch (capped with copper plants)connecting Lansdown Cresecent…
    I cannot upload anything at the moment but there was a post on Lansdown a while ago.
    I’ll see what I can do in a few weeks.

  20. Hi. I stumbled on your site while browsing articles on the Yugo. You have an interesting blog with very nice pictures.

    May I ask what camera you use? Thanks.

  21. Have a nice day !

  22. Not sure how to contact you. I would like to possibly use one of the photos you’ve posted. Would you mind speaking to me about it? Thanks!

  23. Hello James!

    I was in Bath recently but did not make any photos. I was impressed with yours photos! May I use some for my internet blog (it is not commercial)?

    Thank you very much.

  24. I have a quick question, do you have any more pictures of your LIBRARY WRITING TABLE in high resolution. I just need them for a reference, I want to recreate this in 3d for practice. Thanks
    email me at

  25. Please can you contact me urgently – I would like permission to re-publish some of your photos.

  26. Hi James, could you contact me urgently about the possibility of taking over Bath Daily Photo as it is a project I would like to undertake and it seems that you are not using it anymore?!

    Thanks, emma

  27. Hi, from the other side of the pond…

    I just found a reference to “Dolmead” when researching my family’s history…my great great grandfather William Jennings was born around Bath in 1821. The place of his birth was listed as Dolmead. Can you explain what that can be?


  28. Interesting web site. Do you have a date for the old photo of Victoria Park Dairy (with the canons beside the monument)? thanks

  29. Re. 070224.Combe Down, Where the Other Half Lives

    John Wood was born in Bath and attended the Blue Coat School here. He worked in Yorkshire before returning to Bath.

  30. Hi James. Looks interesting. What the Hell is it about? Bill

  31. What’s up to every one, it’s actually a good foor me to pay a quick visit this weeb page,
    it consists of useful Information.
