All the steel foundries I used to pass as a boy on the way to my grandmother's at Neepsend - all gone. The Don ain't wot it used to be.

It's good going down the page to see the other pictures. (Found the street scene, 1976 specially absorbing.) This one is bleak and lovely. I can't think the scene has been much different for a hundred years.
