Tim's One Photograph a Day

Gas Street Basin and Regency Wharf, Birmingham.

Gas Street Basin.

Gas Street Basin

So much history here juxtaposed with modern developments.

This is an area of canal that I never fail to enjoy to photograph. There is so much of interest with ultra-modern developments blending in with the ancient. Evidence can be see of two old canal arms. Under the bridge on the left led to a loading bay, the one further back led to a rather more substantial basin with two arms. The pool in front is famously known as Gas Street Basin.To the right can just be seen part of the bridge that leads over the “Worcester Bar”. Although this structure looks historic, it is, in fact, a very recent addition. The photograph has been given a bit of Photoshop treatment given it the appearance of a painting.
