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.
