I wanted to share some photos of our vist last week, this one in particular:
I looked and looked, but I couldn't see Fat Brenda. Maybe she only works the night shifts?
In the afternoon we went on a locations tour and it was excellent. Mark Llewellin's commentary was great, funny and insightful. We went into Salford and saw terraces very much like Coronation Street. I snapped some photos.
Photos taken out of a bus window!
I don't know if they have rows of terraces like this elsewhere in the country, but you see them in Northern cities. Where I work in Leeds, it is full of them. They're fascinating because they're all different - each terrace and each individual house. Can't you just imagine Jack and Vera's yellow and blue cladding sitting halfway down one of these streets?
