Restoration of historic buildings is always a positive move. Fine shot.

An excellent composition - I love the workman's jacket.
And thanks for the link to a project I hadn't heard about. Interesting building - looks a bit French, or like a Roman forum...
:)

Hello Taken for Granted. I agree. However, Halifax (UK) maybe over-burdened with later yet historic buildings that will be hard to find a use for and expensive to restore - mostly nineteenth century mills and grand buildings associated with the wealth they created (on the backs of the workers who had a very hard time of it one might add).

Hello Pat. I'm glad you like this photo. It's one of my recent favourites. I had to take it very long-distant so I'm glad it came out as well as it did. (And I'm pleased with the composition too - so thnaks.) The Piece Hall - it's amazing. And the size of it is hard to exaggerate. I hope it goes well, it's so large it will either be a huge success and help with the re-invigorating of the area or a tremendous and expensive flop - there are so many commercial units to fill. It's impressive too that where other councils are closing libraries, Halifax is building a large new one and expanding provision for the dramatic arts.

Hello Toffee Apple. I arrived at this same place last week and decided to see how the work is getting along but the huge (and I mean HUGE) doors were closed. The atmosphere was quite daunting.
