Port Sunlight

We took a trip to Port Sunlight yesterday. Despite the cloudy skies and intermittent rain (the blue sky on one of my photographs is there because of wishful thinking), it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. It was interesting to compare Port Sunlight with the previous generation of model industrial villages such as Akroydon and Saltaire; the influence of the arts and crafts and garden suburb movements was very clear. The Lady Leverhulme Gallery contains a rich collection of art: so rich that it could be a little overwhelming at times. However, the art, the architecture, the space and the life-enhancing feel of the place makes me want to visit it again, soon.
