"The Sunset o'er the City....

..... is like a technicolor fillum." So runs a folks song from my wild youth sung by Alex Glasgow. It is indeed a sunset over the terraced roofs of the street where I live. The spire is the Roman catholic cathedral at the bottom of the street and the dome at the left side end is of the town hall of Lancaster. This dome is not to be confused with the Ashton Memorial, the huge Victorian Dome seen from the M6 as you bypass the city.
This just goes to show that even drab city buildings can have their moments of glory.
If you look down this street on a clear day you can see right across the Bay to Barrow in Furness and if its really clear, make out the cranes of the Barrow shipyard.

"for all the grey buildings are lookin' kinda glum,
the sunset o'er the city's like a technicolor fillum."
