Best of Industrial England

One of the most common associations with England is the Industrial Revolution, red-bricked houses, Oliver Twist and loads of other miseries. Truthfully, the industrial past is not entirely in the past, and even in big cities (Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds…) one can find the living (or dead) traces of the used-to-be England. Some of the gorgeous but intimidating buildings were transformed into the residential blocks of flats, offices or, in the worst case scenario, were just left alone to become eventually victims of nature or a brand new commercial centre. And you know what? They are fantastically beautiful. It’s not a standard beauty we are used to, but there is something so nostalgic in the colour of the brick that makes the spectator stand in admiration of the past glory based on inhuman labour. That is why we decided to make a short gallery of the cityscapes of those places that are normally considered as dull or gloomy.  Gorgeous, aren’t they?
