A return to Salford, importantly capturing the old Salford while we still have what remnants are left of it, along a street that’s undergoing rapid change, the relentless drive of re-development. This is a very well executed and appealing composition, with the foreground in shadow (after the rain) and the river-like street and buildings illuminated by the sun emerging from a cloud in an animated sky. But just peering to the right, out of the row of the buildings emerges a portent of what is soon to come. You have been warned!
