I’ve been documenting the construction of 3 buildings in the New Bailey district of Salford for MUSE over the past few months. Riverside house is now nearing completion, whilst New Bailey 2 and 3 still have some way to go.

I’m very much aware of “talking to the future’ when doing work such as this, acutely conscious of the detail within the pictures that might be of use to future social historians. It’s also fascinating talking to the people working on site, who will have left a legacy with their skills and endeavour.
