Of all the days to forget my camera I had to choose the one when they opened up loads of the buildings in Ancoats. Oh well. It was an informative wander and I have a load of targets for later photographing.
I ought to open with an apology. I’ve been ranting about the rebranding of Ancoats as �New Islington�, thinking it was developers ashamed of the heritage. Turns out, when that area of the industrial suburb was built, lots of the streets and sections were named for London landmarks. So there, it was actually the Industrial Revolutionaries who were ashamed of the local heritage.
