Little Germany

In the middle of the city of Bradford is the area known as Little Germany. As the name suggests, everything there feels a bit more continental and quirky. There’s something old fashioned about the place. It’s the Germany of a Universal film from the 1930’s.

The smallest details seem to be decorative. Maybe there’s just something about being here that makes you look closer.

Little Germany is also home to the Bradford Playhouse. The school took us here to see the film of Jane Eyre. Whore and Tetsuo were showing the same week.

About jatkinson1977

I'm in my 30s and married to Sharon, the beautiful woman who keeps me in check. We live in Shipley, just outside Bradford, with our black lab, Nipper. I'm an English teacher in secondary school and, after working as a Teaching & Learning Consultant with the local authority, have returned to the classroom to become a Lead Professional in English at a large comp in Bradford. I'm also trying to become a little more cultured, especially by seeing what culture's right here on my doorstep in Bradford and West Yorkshire (please see my blog, 'Am I Kulchad Yet?'). I've got a third and final blog which is filled with things that, essentially, don't fit into the other two but are interesting enough to share (please see my blog, 'Things That Occur To Me').
