Before The Days Of The Information Mongers


If you look carefully you will spot the Old Lane Inn which I featured a couple of days ago. This photograph was taken from a little higher up the valley looking towards what was then, the mighty Crossley Carpets Mill. Today the area is populated by financial firms and other information mongers.

I like all the old smokestacks. It would be interesting to see how the area looks now in comparison.
Hope your weekend is delightful.

Great picture when viewed large; gritty.

Like many old-established works, the mills disappear and are forgotten. It's good that you are resurrecting the past albeit for only a brief moment.

Is it possible to create a side by side? The impact would be more striking and add to your title meaning.

Alan,
You've quite a lot of history here. I'd liked your comment on my blog. It made me laugh!

Thanks,
Kristy
