1255 : Stalin and Mussolini Shopping At The Co-op


When they built Huddersfield Co-op they must have thought it would last for years. Solid stone. The kind of carved lettering that was so quintessentially nineteen thirties, the date was almost unnecessary. The lettering of Stalin statues and Mussolini Railway Stations. Both now gone, as is Huddersfield Co-op. But I miss the co-op.

Very striking, so 1930s, I hope it survives in the future.

It does look a little weathered. Without continue repair they do just fall to the wayside. I have seen buildings in pictures of other buildings like this in Germany and they all have the same style.
