Nearly there....

All of the pictures to be used on the page are now in their correct positions within the page.
Some more narrative and commentary have been added, so we are about 2 thirds there so far.

I still need to go through and check for spelling mistakes and typo's
The remaining photos need to be compressed in order to keep the page load-up speed as fast as possible.

I've got to go and do other things now, I've been on here far too long!

About the Project Coordinator

ghost aka: Loz Russell Ninja photographer, editor, web designer, programmer and the maniac who started all this off in the first place almost a decade ago! I just can't let this project slip because I feel so strongly about the complacency of the people of the UK in their need to destroy, remove and replace perfectly serviceable buildings (albeit with a little care and attention to detail). Most of these buildings could be pressed easily into alternative useage and easily modernised rather than replaced, such is the strength and longevity of Victorian Architecture. Where most of today's structures have a life of just 35 years at the very most, The Victorians considered that their creations were the last word in construction and would be there for a very long time to come. So, when they disappear or are threatened with removal as so many of the abandoned structures in this project are/were, it is nice to have some sort of record of them, hence the undeniable purpose of my crusade.
