titleSalford townscape
locationSalford, United Kingdom
infoThe image shows Salford as seen from Cornbrook metrolink station. You get a few of the old skyscrapers of Salford's Pendleton district in the background surrounded by trees as a romantic look at the urban planners of the 1960's dreams to create a modern neighbourhood. Ultimately this failed and Salford became a very deprived region of the UK. The foreground shows this with the low-rise cheap industrial buildings and the scrapyard. However, the foreground also shows some hope to the evolving nature of the Greater Manchester region with new property developments rising as regeneration begins to penetrate deprived urban districts such as Ordsall in Salford.
