Blitz Ghost - Caernarvon Road

    Newer Older

    1942, a big old pile of men mend a burst main in the road.

    In the background just across Earlham Road is St Thomas' Church, not yet apparently burnt out by incendiaries, it will be or it has been, it's all about perspective.

    Tiiiiime slip...

      I hope the Peugeot owner doesn't mind?

      How do you explain that to the insurance company? 'A time travelling photographer wrote my car off while it was outside my home.' Did you leave a note on the windscreen saying sorry and signed HGW?

      Fuck - these are brilliant enough to make me swear online before 9 in the morning.

      Well done, gentlemen.

      Thank you my dears, a large percentage of the pleasure is all mine.

      There are a few of this road, it was a ruptured main I think, caused by the blast. The church was gutted, I've yet to do that one.

      The more I look at these the more I want to get back out and take some more then and now photos of the Manchester Blitz. I do think blue skies contrast really well with mono images, as shown by these images you have crafted. Very glad to have someone point out your work; Flickr at its best, IMO.
