Ship’s chandler

138 High Street west, Sunderland

138 High Street West, Sunderland

Used to be a ship’s chandler in the days when they had wooden hulls and sails, now it’s a pub.

The area around the bottom end of High Street in Sunderland would have been very bustling and busy about a hundred years ago when it was the centre of a busy commercial port, now it looks a bit run down, although a fair amount of new business and apartments are growing there.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/750 second, f5.6, iso 200
