Stockport Co-op building and Christ Church steeple

Looking across the roof of the Co-op building in Stockport, with the steeple of Christ Church visible in the distance.

The traditional roof elements of the Co-op building juxtaposed with the steeple and no modern elements combine to make what I call a 'chronogenic' image, a picture that conjures up a feeling of other times. Christ Church was partially demolished, but the steeple was left as it is a major landmark in Stockport. We are looking from St Peter's Square in the Cheshire side of Stockport, south of the Mersey. Christ Church is north of the Mersey in Lancashire.
