"Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?" Lyrics from the song 'Ghost Town' by The Specials that certainly ring true in 2016. These photographs were taken near a sea-side resort up in the North of England but could've been taken in any town as most shops are shut, boarded up or have to let signs outside them now. The high streets throughout the UK used to be filled with different shops selling a variety of wares, now whenever I go to a new town or city the same high street shops fill the streets with the same window displays, same clothes, same mannequins, same sign frontage....boring, boring, boring. Bring back the high street variety!
