Bradford City Hall

Bradford City Hall, 21/2/18

Well, the clock’s a bit blurry but you can see I have the time right, at least. In Bradford today at the start of a much-needed, half-term, half-week break from work, to see War Horse at the theatre, which as a visual feast, at least, was stupendous: but no photos allowed of that I’m afraid, so the grand City Hall will have to do. It’s at least nice that they have finished off Bradford (in a good way) after about a decade of stalled building works left the place looking as much of a bomb site as it did in 1945.

Ferris Wheel, outside University Place

Monday 20th April 2015, 4.45pm (day 1,334)

Ferris wheel, 20/4/15

Portions of the University of Manchester campus were today turned into a temporary fairground (some might say the whole place is permanently like that, in spirit), in support, apparently, of the campaign to get students to register to vote. This Ferris wheel sat outside the University Place building all day, looking like some kid had built it from a Meccano set — you wouldn’t have got me on it. But then again this is true of all Ferris wheels. I’ll take pictures of them, not from them.
