Pomona in October ............. views across the water

Now once a long time ago Pomona was synonymous with fun.

There were a set of pleasure Gardens there and in an age long before the television, the cinema and certainly You Tube this was a place to come.

Later it turned into a busy industrial spot and more recently had become tired, neglected and run down.

Just the place for Andy Robertson to wander into and record the changes.

Now I have long been a fan of Andy’s work which as people know is all about recording bits of Greater Manchester as they go through a transformation.

And it doesn’t matter if the spot is an old warehouse, a long forgotten pub or an industrial landscape.

Andy is there and just like those photographers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, his work will be an important record of what has happened to the twin cities and the surrounding areas.

So here are two looking across the water.
