The 'indoor market' in Burslem has been closed for some time. At its other entrance, there is a rather hopeful placard announcing that it is hoped to re-open it one day, but it looks doomed to me.
There is a reason for choosing this photo for today, as this is the day that the City Daily Portal website is calling for photos on the theme of the 'Beauty Of Decay'. I guess the scene is not in any way beautiful - but maybe the composition of it is (?)
Anyway, if you want decay, Burslem is the place to go. I love Burslem, but... yes, it is decaying... Before one's very eyes.
