Old Machinery – Granary Wharf

Picture of an old crane at Granary Wharf in the city of Leeds, Yorkshire.

This old crane is located adjacent to the Leeds – Liverpool canal at the canal side behind the Mint Hotel on Granary Wharf Leeds.

I am not sure if was originally installed hereabouts or whether it was acquired from elsewhere. I quite like this kind of former industrial hardware being used as a kind of public art. It adds to feeling of the the days when this stretch of the canal was the lifeblood of the means of transporting goods when the alternative was a horse and cart.

The building in the background just over the canal is Quayside House which houses Investec.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
