Angles That Were Right Not Wrong

The nineteenth century did not do curves very well. With the rigidity of a Victorian patriarch, architects preferred horizontals and verticals, angles that were right not wrong. Get rid of the stylistic curves of the cars and the vaguely carnal line of the flyover and you are left with the solidity in stone that is nineteenth century Halifax.

  3. Looks like a double exposure from two different eras.
