Theres something funny about the gable end on the first house.


Comment by Aubrey on 26th August 2015 at 09:25
Mick,
Could it be Dave's sense of humour? It does appear the photo has been 'tampered' with.


Comment by christine on 26th August 2015 at 09:42
yea thought that too mick strange


Comment by Garry on 26th August 2015 at 10:34
Another superimposed photo.


Comment by Peter on 26th August 2015 at 11:44
I would say that the photo is more or less straight off the camera
Nice photo dave


Comment by trevor on 26th August 2015 at 12:13
Cant see any sign of photo shopping, if your are thinking the chimney is wrong i am pretty sure the back wall is tapered , i.e not parallel with the front one


Comment by Alex on 26th August 2015 at 12:27
Yes I'll go with tampered with Aubrey, these snappers are always doing it. I can't see the point myself. Not one of the best.


Comment by Brian Bradshaw on 26th August 2015 at 13:15
True picture, go and have a look.


Comment by Jod on 26th August 2015 at 13:32
Dave, you just can't win!

Mick, Aubrey, Christine, have a look here for another angle:

Garry, do you know what 'superimposed' really means, you use it regularly enough?


Comment by Jod on 26th August 2015 at 13:42
.....there's even another one on this site!

Go to Photos Of Wigan, New Gallery, scroll down to Brian Thurston's Photo Gallery, open it, then select Leeds/Liv Canal and Canal Terrace is one of the images!


Comment by Anne on 26th August 2015 at 15:50
No jiggery-pokery about that house. It really does have a corner taken off.


Comment by Maureen on 26th August 2015 at 16:39
Why on earth would Dave superimpose a photo..when he's one of the best there is.


Comment by Pw on 26th August 2015 at 16:41
Excellent photo,looks a nice place to live and not far to go if you like fishing and watching canal boats


Comment by Caroalen on 26th August 2015 at 18:15
this photo brought back many memories of walking along the Canal Bank from our house in Roscoe Street to visit my Grandmother in Albert Street in the 1950s/60s. I used to see these houses ad desperately wanted to live in one as they were so different from the other terraces and right on the canal. Incidentally does anyone remembers a huge fire in a garage/workshop near here about 1960 (I was only a little boy) but it lit up the sky and people came from all around to see it. Indelible memory of my childhood


Comment by Garry on 26th August 2015 at 18:32
Maureen, David is one of the best, but many happy snappers do superimpose photos.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 26th August 2015 at 19:22
Thanks for the comments. No tampering or superimposing (lol). Not that I never have - or never will. :)


Comment by Fred Mason on 26th August 2015 at 20:29
The house does look strange..like half of it is missing....but..I have to agree with Maureen above.


Comment by Pw on 26th August 2015 at 21:46
I do not think people who post photos on here are snappers, they seem to take a lot of thought and interest in what they do.


Comment by Garry on 27th August 2015 at 11:12
Pw, You don't get it do you. Snappers Speaking metaphorically.
But I don't think you'll understand.


Comment by Daveb on 28th August 2015 at 10:44
Nice detailed photo Dave, I worked at one of these houses in the early 70s fitting new wooden gutters ,they look a lot better at the front now .
