RESCAN 20 : Concrete Citadels

1709B-35.jpg
RESCAN 20 : Some called them brutalist, but the Kelvin Hall flats were like the walls of some post-war residential citadel that kept at bay the conditions of the old back-to-back slums that they replaced. Once the pride of Sheffield, they were demolished by the end of the century. I took this photograph in the early 1980s.
