Shutterspots No. 7: Salt’s Mill, Saltaire

[rl_gallery id=”17091″]

Just on the outskirts of Bradford is the idyllic little town of Saltaire.  Saltaire was built in 1851 by Sir Titus Salt, a leading Yorkshire industrialist.   The name is a blend of the founder’s name and the name of the local river Aire that runs nearby. The town is picturesque and can be a source for some wonderful street photography opportunities.
