Notre Dame

Sad to see the Cathedral go up in flames. I saw it when I was in Paris the year before last.

Cathedrals like that leave me a bit "Meh"; I can take them or leave them. But it's amazing to think the amount of graft that was put into making such a huge and imposing building all those centuries ago with just basic tools.

There must have been a city of skilled workers working to build that thing.

I'm more interested in industrial architecture, especially the Victorian type, the sort of buildings that did something and had purpose.

But you'd expect nothing less of a Manchester lad...
