Exciting the young about industrial architecture

Getting people interested in industrial architecture can be tricky, but if you can get them young then hopefully they will stay engaged.  ‘Alina Saves The Moon’ is a new picture book about two children who live in Newtown, Reading, close beside the town’s last gas holder. Illustrated by a local artist, there are sweeping views of the gas tower, the Victorian primary school and the river, as the children fly across Reading’s urban landscape to save the Moon from his imprisonment in the holder.

What a lovely way to commemorate one of Reading’s remaining, if soon to be demolished, pieces of our industrial past.

Find out more about the book here and about the gas holder here.
