LALLY NEWSAGENT DERELICT SHOP ON PRUSSIA STREET

There are a number of derelict sites in the area. A few weeks ago it was reported that housing activists had regained access to a site following an attempted eviction. The site, Sunnyvale, was/is occupied by a protest group operating under the name "That Social Centre". To the best of my knowledge the address in question is 23 Prussia Street.

I do not know the history of this shop in my photograph, which ceased trading a number of years ago, but the street on which it is located will undergo major changes in the near future as at least two sites are to be redeveloped.

In January planning permission was submitted for a student accommodation complex [541 units] to replace the Park Shopping Centre, The original shopping centre dating from 1984 adjoins the TU university campus which was scheduled to have 20,000 students by the end of 2020 but I am fairly certain that the target has yet to be realised.

It would appear that planning permission has been awarded late in 2020: "Demolition of existing buildings, construction of 585 no. bedspace student accommodation, 16 no. Co-Living apartments, 4 no. townhouses and associated site works."

I could wrong but there is another student complex underway on the other side of Prussia Street. The Topline Windows & PVC site at 68 Prussia Street has been cleared or is being cleared.

ZEISS BATIS 85mm LENS

Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Sony E Mount, Black

I HAVE THIS AND THE 135mm LENS

VERSATILE FULL-FRAME LENS: The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers. EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND HIGH CONTRAST: Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light. ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF METAL CONSTRUCTION: Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use. SMOOTH AND RELIABLE AUTOFOCUS: The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
