Unusual stuff, including Steampunks in Saltaire

What is Steampunk?

In a sentence it is Victorian science fiction. Steampunk afficiandos are a spectacle to behold. They wear Victorian and Victorian military costumes incorporating tweed, corsets, googles with brass and copper. Their presence in Saltaire will certainly not go unnoticed and will provide fabulous photographic opportunities. Bring your camera!
