Lark Hill Place

DSC_0007_1A reaction to a visit to Lark Hill Place, a reconstructed victorian street located in Salford’s museum & art gallery.  Created by Inky for the Inkwell.

On your way to Peel Park,

lies an old cobbled street

from that time before Tarmac

Lay under your feet

.A Modern carriage waits

for its wheels to be fixed

By Bracegirdle’s Blacksmiths

the metals are mixed.

Off Ackers’ is Tomlinson’s

wi’ sweets of the past

and those fruit drops in th’ window

How long would they last?

To the kid chimney sweep on 2’6 a day

those sweeties would take up a part o’ their pay.

Over Ackers the music shop

plays wax discs of the day

and outside the toy shop

the local kids play

And the sound from th’ Blue Lion

rise up with a cheer!

why not its where

flagons are loaded wi ‘beer!

And as you go from the tavern

you pass the states mans home

next to th’ undertakers wi’ its

deathly tome.

The old toy shop

The Blacksmith

The Terrace at No 3
