Werewolf Town

Graffiti found on a bridge near Holbeck, Leeds. I think I know what the author of this text meant. The city has changed a lot in the 18 years since I last lived there, and continues to change every time I go back up there. Some things have improved. In the 1980’s Boar Lane used to look like something out of Escape From New York and now it looks like any other blandly “regenerated” street in any city anywhere in Britain. By becoming a place very much on the map nowadays, it’s lost something of what once made it strange and unique.
