Sankey Viaduct and lock

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 4th November 2011 by Liam Physick

One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. This 1974 photograph shows the Sankey Viaduct and the lock from the canal which once flowed under it. The disappearance of the canal, the derelict building in front of the Viaduct, and the lack of smoke from the chimney in the background are emblematic of the end of the industrial age
