Silent witness to the commerce of Empire

Gateshead, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Once steamers and bargies shouted and swore,
bound for Liverpool and Hull,
from mills dark and rotten,
from shores of empire soon forgotten.

This wonderful bridge spans one of the Salford Quays , near Manchester. A Gotham batman creation of modern echoes of Fritz Lang’s dream of a new world.
Once the heart of a waterway network that linked the factories and mills of the Greater Manchester area to the UK and the old British Empire, it is now an area of modern cleansing and new development.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.
