Scholes starts over Scholes Bridge..Bottom of Millgate

Not in Harrogate St Wigan

is it me or does that scissor lift look like an accident waiting to happen, good picture though.


Comment by Alex on 14th March 2014 at 07:47
Good picture Mick, I like the light and the perspective. What a transformation from an ugly building!


Comment by Scholes Malc on 14th March 2014 at 10:36
Good photo Mick
Most of the buildings are indeed 'down town Scholes'


Comment by Roy on 14th March 2014 at 10:54
I dont think it's you Joe, the platform definately looks like it's a few degrees down at the back and the scissor seems to be slightly 'off' the perpendicular leaning away from the building. A very good clinical looking photo Mick, ALL the buildings look squeeky clean.

Clever photograph !


Comment by Rev David Long on 14th March 2014 at 14:02
Closer inspection of the flats behind, Roy, shows the white is quickly becoming green, with moss growing on its surface.


Comment by Mick on 14th March 2014 at 14:29
Arthur old chap for your info I took the snap with one of my legs still cocked over my crossbar when I was on Darlington street the A577, and not Harrogate steet the A49 which you have suggested


Comment by A.W. on 14th March 2014 at 15:37
good picture, has a very angular/geometric element to it.


Comment by scimoan walker on 14th March 2014 at 17:26
Looks more like down town New York.
Does look like the green algi is making a return.


Comment by Art on 15th March 2014 at 01:14
Funnily enough Mick, the address of the old police station (ie the new hotel) is Harrogate St...That is of course unless they have moved the foundations...Which I find is nigh impossible.
BTW the A49 is Wallgate-Marketplace-Standishgate...South to North, of course


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 16th March 2014 at 15:42
Another good "jig-saw" to be tackled .good picture ...nice and clear Mjck.
