Day 52 – The Other Side

22nd February 2012

Liverpool city centre is lovely, busy, full of vibrant life and wealth but travel just a mile or so into the outskirts of the city and things are very different. These houses line the streets around Liverpool Football Club. The club bought them up with the view to building a new, bigger stadium. For now the money for this project has dried up and so row upon row of these houses sit there, rotting, boarded up, empty, scaring a local community that is clearly suffering terribly in the current economic climate. To me there is something truly wrong about all this….

    i like the perspective in this shot and the grittyness, too… your info and quote are great, too, definitely adding to your work.

    I reckoned it must be somewhere in the UK!! The houses looked so British :). I’m going there soon. Not to Liverpool though.
