Over the next few years the area in which we live will probably see quite a few changes. I think I've previously mentioned the multi-million pound plans to regenerate the seafront, but I don't think I've talked about the Talbot Gateway. The Gateway will centre on Blackpool North, our local train station, which is currently functional and utilitarian, but not especially inviting. It will also encompass the bus station and multi-storey carpark, which do attract people, but you wouldn't want to bump into them on a dark night. When the Gateway is finished it should include a range of new buildings, gardens, walkways, and so on.
So, over the next few years, there will be a number of changes that affect our environment and I intend to chronicle some of the social, cultural and material changes that take place as the Gateway makes the transition from plan to actuality. This shot is a part of that series, not because of its location (though it's situated fairly close to the station), but because of the text; i.e. the Brunswick ward is one of the areas that will be directly affected by these plans.
Oh, and don't worry if I don't put anything up tomorrow night. At the moment, I don't have anything remotely worth posting. I am going to try a few shots this evening, and may have a bit of time tomorrow, but I'm out for most of tomorrow evening so may not manage to get anything up. If I don't, there will definitely be something on Saturday.
