Linotype and Machinery building
Recent demolition work has opened up this view of the impressive L&M building. Shame about the clutter in the foreground, but without the building work, we wouldn't have the view. I don't know what is going to be built here but the chances are the view will disappear again as the redevelopment progresses.
Linotype made typesetting machines that were used by printers all over the world, until the electronic revolution swept them away. They made printing presses too. This shot shows the offices, the works are behind. The buildings now house an assortment of businesses.
