Photo-a-day 238: Rooftops of Newcastle

close

Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Monument Mall, whose cupola is on the left of this shot, is currently undergoing major redevelopment. The new configuration will fill in the mall spaces to create several large units accessed from the street, providing space for Jamie’s Italian, Armani, TK Maxx, and several other stores besides. It’s a shame in some ways, as Monument Mall used to sport some very distinctive gold and glass escalators (there’s an amazing picture of those here), but I guess small shop units are just out of fashion these days.

Earl Grey can be seen on the right, standing some 40m above Grey Street. The fascinating story of his head can be found back on day 70 of this project…
