Pawnbroker, South Shields


I guess South Shields really is little different from many other towns in the UK as we all deal with the economic recession. The larger retailers apparently favour out of town developments with free car parking, bus stations and rail links! Many of the more traditional shops are no longer there and our town centres fill up with charity shops, pound shops, discount retailers, and pawnbrokers.

This one is at the foot of Fowler Street.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 75mm lens, 1/250 second, f5.6, iso 200
