A Walk Around the Midland Hotel.
I had the great pleasure yesterday of accompanying another photographer (Simon Webb) around the Midland Hotel in Morecambe. For anyone who doesn't know the Midland, it is a unique Grade II listed, Art Deco building, and a huge symbol of Morecambe's once glorious past.

There's not actually much to see there right now, as Urban Splash are currently renovating the hotel and Simon is documenting the process for a planned book and exhibition. It's a pretty stripped-back looking building site at the moment. Iwas there to photograph Simon at work.

Simon's pictures look like being a great record of the building's transformation, and you can see some of them already on his website. thanks for arranging the visit Simon, it was a fascinating look at a fascinating building.
