Liverpool // / by sophie green

These were taken in Toxteth, a suburb of Liverpool, a pretty sad and lonely place. There were rows and rows of abandoned houses that were all vandalised, abandoned and became derelict during the riots that took place in Toxteth in 1981. Every window of the houses are either bricked up or covered in steel sheeting. Very occasionally I would come across signs of life such as a parked car, even a brothel/ drug den and this beautiful girl who was playing with her brothers and sisters in the street.
