Strangeways Here We Come
Who but a comedian would name a prison 'Strangeways'?
In Manchester we call it The Strangeways Hotel. Boddingtons Brewery sits just across the street. Double penury.
There's something wistful about this image, taken late on a summer evening from the train, heading into Manchester.
Trivia note: I worked at the photo lab in Manchester where album artwork for The Smiths 'Strangeways Here We Come' was printed.
