Weight and Stuff Report – 6 September 2012

Up another one of those teeny bits today, but I’m sure that’s just a temporary wossname. I walked to work again:

Walked to work

Walked to work

but I didn’t have the chance to go further than grabbing a sarnie at lunchtime. Never mind, etc.

Today’s picture is something that’s just about unique in Newcastle city centre. Thirty or more years ago, a lot more buildings looked like this – coated in the grime and soot of decades of pollution, but after much cleaning, most of our fine 19th century buildings are nicely clean and shiny. Well, as shiny as that kind of stone gets, which isn’t very, but you get the idea. Anyway, for some reason, this building, on the corner of Neville Street and Pink Lane, seems to have been forgotten. Perhaps it should stay that way as a reminder of how grim British cities used to look…

Unclean!

Unclean!
