The Salts sign


This red sign on the side of Salts Mill is to Saltaire what the white Hollywood sign is to Los Angeles! Nothing less than an urban icon...And even if you gave me enough money to afford to live in Beverley Hills, I'd still choose to live round here. I get real pleasure from walking round 'my' village on a lovely sunny day, and I especially enjoy exploring on misty mornings or when there's snow on the ground, when everything looks transformed. When I've been away, my route home from the rail station passes the red sign - and it says "I'm home" to me. Is there a better feeling?
