Christmas Day 2011 - Alone in the City Centre

In 2011 I found myself alone for Christmas Day and whilst I was a bit down, I wasn't lonely. As an autistic person I have a base state of alone, so I took the opportunity to indulge my 'special interest' of city photography and to wander the streets of Birmingham city centre to get some shots. Serendipity intervened to gift this set of rare photos.

Did You Know?

James Watt invented the condenser sytem for steam engines which ushered in the steam age.

William Murdoch left his home town in southern Scotland aged 23 and walked the 300 miles to Birmingham. Upon arrival he asked James Watt for a job, got one and went on to become a full partner with Matthew Boulton and Watt. Murdoch developed many innovations, but is well known for inventing gas lighting.

Matthew Boulton was the father of mass production, developing the first systems for producing many identical objects like coins, cutlery and 'toys' using production lines in his Soho Manufactury in Hockley, he was also a founding member of the Lunar Society, a full moon meeting group of luminaries considered to be founders of the British Industrial Revolution.
