 Denton Railway Station, at Night.

 Served by just one train a week ...


A bustling area - a supermarket, warehouse / store, hotel, pub, car dealerships, pedestrian walkways and this desolate station ... that's what I found at Denton, near Manchester, on Wednesday night. And as well as words, I wanted to paint a picture like the one above. How could I do so, without image manipulation?

I have used a table to hold the image, and a cell within it with a background url rather than a colour ... sizing my table cell to the size of the image:

<table cellpadding=5>
<tr><td style="background:url(/pix/denton2.jpg) top center repeat-y;
color: yellow;" width=450 height=300 valign=top><h3>Denton Railway Station,
at Night. </h3> Served by just one train a week ...</td></tr></table>


See here for an article I have written on the area near this station, and the lack of service. See here for further pictures, and comment.
