Floodlit


Some of Saltaire's public buildings are floodlit at night, and their glow makes the centre of the village seem quite cosy.  This is one end of the building on Victoria Road that now houses part of Shipley College.  It was originally built to be Saltaire's Factory Schools - one for boys and one for girls, at opposite sides of the building - in compliance with the 19th century Factories Acts.  Later it became a High School and now an FE college.  The lighting in reality isn't quite as orange as this but I don't mind the warm effect.  The cowl on the roof is another of my favourite Saltaire details and I shall post another photo of that tomorrow.

  2. Nice effect. It looks like a monochrome until you see the blue sky.
