The Price of Progress

Liverpool loses its world heritage status:

Guess that's the nature of the beast of progress.

Making places easier to get to and more amenable to live and visit sometimes paradoxically makes them less inviting.

Re: The Price of Progress

There are a lot of places that suffer the overbuild
.Croydon my birth town..
They have managed to turn some areas into, literally no go zones, new developments unfinished and that is including a new shopping centre with no shops..

Benidorm and such popular holiday destinations, they have not escaped the overbuilding. Fishing villages of beauty at one time....

Nothing much changes in Rural France though, small shops have gone over the years, large supermarkets saw to that.. it is not immune of course, no where is it seems..

Reason why we recently purchased a plot of land adjoining ours...anything could have been built on it....
Benidorm...
