                                                     The White Elephant, Hallam Towers Hotel, Sheffield, UK

The long derelict Hallam Towers Hotel rising over Endcliffe Park. It is a landmark, a white elephant, an icon, an eyesore depending on who you ask. A little like one of those 50's Las Vegas casino hotels that slowly became obsolete as the expanding Strip took business up town. No grand demo planned for this one though.
According to wiki, Sheffield, with around 2.5 million trees has the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.
The one I live up has no front door but is roomy, spacious with incredible views of the long derelict Hallam Towers rising....
