SJ8394 : Derelict Cafeteria, Alexandra Park, Moss Side

taken 19 years ago, near to Withington, Manchester, Great Britain

Derelict Cafeteria, Alexandra Park, Moss Side
Derelict Cafeteria, Alexandra Park, Moss Side
This cafeteria is situated opposite some tennis courts. Once a cool retreat for the users of the park, paying witness in its design to a more genteel age, the structure had been abandoned to the ravages of the weather, nature and local teenagers. Extraordinary though it may seem, a bull used to be kept behind this cafeteria, with a ring in its nose. This was a fearsome sight for young children and I cannot account for this. Someone loved "Chantelle 97"? Taken at 8 a.m.
