But Bradford doesn't need regional headquarters of banks and multinationals, and Bradford certainly doesn't need to be torn down to be rebuilt as a bland, soulless modern city. Bradford is a city of huge culture, history and heritage, with some really beautiful architecture and wonderful people. It has soul, in spades. I really hope it can capitalise on these factors to turn itself around, and become a prominent city once again, with or without outside help.
I'm guessing it will be without outside help, but I have a feeling that it will be okay, as there is clearly a lot of zeal in Bradfordians. For example, coming up in mid-May, the Bradford Literature Festival, all organised locally.
These taken with the Pentax Q, which I have realised is actually far, far superior to my SLR for street photography.
