The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

The Old Boiler House ..

The Old Boiler House at the ICI site  ( then to become Zeneca then to become Avecia  ) at Blackley,  Manchester.

Unusual in that it was coal fired ..

Pulled down - this part of the site is now a housing development . 

The chemical works and laboratories have now long gone - all that remains is Hexagon Tower with a few offices and work shops.

Much of Britain's original manufacturing base has now disappeared and we seem to import everything from India or China ..

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
