Separated at birth?


We have been surprised to note the similarity between the recently completed housing by FAT in New Islington, Manchester and the Golden Nugget in the resort of Morecambe. Eschewing the attractions of this hitherto unresearched area of the Lancastrian vernacular, which can span between “Dutch gables” and the ‘Wild West” (perhaps a too, too clever reference to New Amsterdam? ) the principal differences would appear to be in the nuances of car parking etiquette. Unlike the desperadoes of Morecambe, the cowboys of the new frontier which is New Islington have nowhere for tethering horses.
