Energy Gas Holder Power


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in Blackburn's history as the iconic gas holder on Wensley Road is dismantled. Once a prominent landmark that defined the city's skyline, this towering structure now stands vulnerable and exposed to the elements. Damian Grady expertly freezes time in May 2017, allowing us to witness the gradual disassembly of this historical gasometer. The image showcases not only the physical power and energy associated with such structures but also serves as a reminder of our ever-evolving society. As we move towards more modern methods of energy storage, traditional gas holders like these become obsolete relics from a bygone era. From an aerial perspective, Grady provides viewers with a unique vantage point that emphasizes both the scale and intricacy involved in dismantling such an imposing industrial monument. The contrast between its robust metal framework against the surrounding urban landscape creates an intriguing visual narrative. Historic England has meticulously preserved this photograph print as part of their collection, ensuring that future generations can appreciate and learn from Blackburn's rich industrial heritage. Through Damian Grady's lens, we are transported back to witness this transformative chapter unfold before our eyes – reminding us of how progress shapes our cities while honoring their past achievements.
