EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the forgotten beauty of Digbeth Canal in Birmingham during the 1980s. The image, taken in 1987, shows a desolate and derelict scene, with the once vibrant waterway now a shadow of its former self. The canal, which was once a vital artery for the industrial city, now lies abandoned and unused. The crumbling brickwork of the disused Bordesley Junction can be seen in the background, its grandeur overshadowed by the encroaching foliage and decay. The bridge, with its rusted ironwork and peeling paint, stands as a testament to the passage of time and the relentless march of progress. The water itself is still and murky, reflecting the desolation of the scene. The scene is a stark contrast to the bustling and modern Birmingham of today, a reminder of the city's rich industrial past. This photograph, taken by an unknown photographer, is a poignant snapshot of a bygone era, and a reminder of the transformative power of time and renewal.
