Demolition's Pictures

If the Hat Fits
If the Hat Fits (Pentax Optio 50)

On a trip to Crown Point North I saw this triangular thing that I had never noticed before on the side of Jessops, so my daughter an I took a closer look and found this facade. The plaque says “This pediment was one of three which adorned the front facade of nearby Wilson's Hat Factory in Wilton Street. Built 1872. Demolished 2002.”. It was of course demolished to make way for the Crown Point North shopping centre. Not needing to visit the area around the hat factory at the time I never saw it before it got demolished which is a pity, even the pictures on the Crown Point North history section don't seem to help much.

Ancoats Dispensary
Ancoats Dispensary (Sony Ericsson K700i)

Also during our trip to Ancoats we found Ancoats Hospital, a now delapidated building, but as is my way with all old buildings I like it, what would be good would be to go inside and see the what it's like. Doubtless you can see history within there of all the changes to the building since it was built. It now stands there awaiting demolition probably for some more apartments; you never know perhaps the new Islington Wharf is something to do with it, as this is very close.
