Some from a walk round town today.
This building is bound to get demolished at some point, which is a shame. It's been squatted recently - I think by the same group that took over the old Cornerhouse cinema.
A half-demolished car park by the Manky Way.
Mill Chimney of the India Rubber Works.
Owen Street development. This will be the tallest of the cluster of towers, something around 200m I think.
Old wall on the River Medlock. It looks like they built the wall around trees that were on the river bank before - they look like old tree trunks anyway.
Random stuff behind Deansgate Station.
The council have said they'll clear the square soon. The flower carpet is bigger now, and there was a bagpipe band all in kilts and bearskins.
Canadian pavement art.
including my old apartment there, facing Atlas bar's beer garden (noisy bastards!)
A nice little warren of back streets round that bit of town - but not the bit next to noisy Atlas bar, obviously. I've lived next to a motorway and rail line, and that didn't bother me at all - but human voices always wake me up.
Sat in Weston Park, Sheffield. Before crossing the road to Weston Park Hospital for my regular check-up.
Gorgeous pics there farmerbarleymow
St Mary's church Beverley
Side gate at Beverley Friary
Inside Nelly's gas lit pub in Beverley where beer is £2 a pint
I came across this in Beverley but I've no idea how it works or what it's for
Given its connected to the lamp above the doorway, it might be a gas lamp - the red thing the tank. But vulnerable to vandalism though...
somewhat antique petrol pump
there are still a very few with the wall mounted arrangement (this one is / was in wainfleet, lincs)
Seems incredibly stupid to have a petrol tank either in or right next to your house. What could possibly go wrong?
It a supercharger for the 1910 first electric car?
Mundane pictures of Northumbrian 'packed beaches'
There were two of these petrol pumps still in use in Cloughton north of Scarborough only a few years back.
Talking of Wainfleet, Lincs, Puddy_Tat, do you know if there is still the coal fired fish and chip shop there. The fish and chips were really good I remember.
not sure i encountered it when i was living in lincs, and haven't been out that way for a while now...
South Yorkshire navigation canal on a dog walk 6.30 am on Saturday.
Looking out to sea over Lancaster, Morecambe etc from Blea Tarn.You could see Blackpool Tower and the shipyard at Barrow too it was so clear yesterday.
on tweeter today
