The maude

Back to Leek for this shot of the old Maude institute building, that is the one on the left, next to the HQ of the 2nd Leek scouts. The Maude was built in 1896 and the scout HQ in 1723. The Maude is now home to Leeks newest gym and club, Genetix, a great venue to see live acts, as i found out only last week. Its about time we had a good venue again, in the past Leek has seen some good acts perform here, including the Rolling stones and the Beatles.


  1. Great treatment of the photo. Has an almost 3D look. Works well in black & white.

  2. If it weren't for the cars and the modern look of the signs, ths picture could have been from the 19th century.

  3. Perfect tones, love all the shades of grey.

  4. That's a beautiful building, I like all the different windows. Doesn't look like a Stones venue!
