The Past

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

The Lowry

This is the entrance to  The Lowry ( Salford Quays ) where you will find theatres, bars, conference centre, wedding venue and of course art exhibitions including those our local artist L.S.Lowry.

Very modern - the Lowry Centre is based in the old Manchester and Salford Docks which ceased to operate several years ago - in fact part of my job in a Shipping Company ( late 1960's ) was to take documents down to the docks from our office in the centre of Manchester.

How things have changed - this area has a modern shopping outlet and hundreds of apartments plus museums and a boating club.

Nice photo. I'm sure the change is for the better.


interestign design, very modern, the colours in the reflection of the glass go very well with the blue sky

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?
