Thank you for this, Jack. When I saw the title I held off opening the thread until I'd brewed some coffee. Cup in hand, iPad perched on my lap, I clicked in and, wow! I was so enthralled with the photos that I found I still had a nearly full cup when I reached the end.
These old buildings have a real beauty about them. The brickwork on many of them is gorgeous. I hope that the means are found to preserve as many as possible.
I don't know how large of a geographic area those photos represent, but I can imagine those buildings making excellent waypoints on an epic urban hike.
