In the Middle of Our Street

£1 houses for sale in StokeFrom the Guardian’s Photo Blog:

A derelict house in the Cobridge area of Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire that is being sold by the council for £1, sits next to an occupied house that appears to be well looked after. The derelict homes are being sold by Stoke City Council for the nominal sum and the cost of refurbishing them will initially be met by the council, though the owner will have to pay back that cost over a period of time.

First off, that’s an insane concept (The selling a house for a pound thing). Secondly, that pic is weirdly unsettling to me; it’s as if the house on the left is corrupted or demonic, somehow. It’s an evil house.
