Christmas Prize Draw 2017

Day 19 September 2010: Closed shops

Advertisement

19 Sep 2010 12:01AM
Today we want to see shots of closed shops . Images of shops that have closed their doors for the last time would be great but if you live in a busy, vibrant town images of shops which have just pulled the shutters down for the evening will be fine.

If you're new to Photo Month you can find out more about it in the what is Photo Month forum .

The centre of Dunstable is littered with dead and dying shops.

Moores Dept. Store had been on this site for about 100 years.

Bullertons Mens Outfitters had been here nearly as long.

Even the pubs are closing.

This is where I used to live.

I took the dog out one Sunday afternoon, when there weren't too many people about, and took over eighty images of closed and boarded up shops, pubs and offices. There were even a couple of car dealerships standing empty.

The sites of all eighty shots were within a twenty minute walk of my home.

The folder's entitled "Dead Centre". Says it all really.

I think it's been closed for a while, old town Tallinn.

a piece of history....and sad sights...The big Supermarkets and out of town shopping centres have hastened this demise, but the councils have stood by and let it happen Sad
