About this image
Looking from the tower of St Mary's Church, showing Scala cinema and the large square covered roof of the Pimlico water reservoir. In the distance is the spoil heaps of the former Manners Colliery (right), in the centre, beyond Nutbrook is the West Hallam coal screens near Mapperley Brook, and on the left is High Lanes East. The photographer has used a telephoto lens which has had the usual telephoto effect of foreshortening the scene and making things which are far away in the distance seem much closer than they actually are.
