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...
