Who can resist a bit of British Brutalist architecture? Not me, although a few years ago I didn't care too much for the building which used to be the Yorkshire Building Society in Bradford (second photo) but now I'm warming to the ugly concrete structure with its copper windows that glint in the sun. The top photograph reminds me of some offices from the 1970's that would have been filled with filing cabinets alongside workers smoking at their desks with ashtrays overflowing with Number 6 butt ends and the clattering noise of typewriters (who can forget the bell ring at the end of the carriage return). The bottom photograph is of what appear to be flats/apartments now in Bradford, West Yorkshire which as far as I'm aware used to be offices.
