Oerlikon


Saturday morning walk in Zurich Oerlikon, a suburban industrial quarter of Zurich with its very own charming character, far off the inner city’s shiny places where you can literally get sick of all the opulence and shallowness.

I took the Contax T2 with me as I currently just like it so much. As usually all pictures were shot on Ilford HP5+ which suits the rough style of the area quite well.

Some background info on Oerlikon:

Oerlikon was mentioned for the first time in the year 946 (other source: 942) as Orlinchowa.

North of the station, a new quarter called Neu-Oerlikon (New Oerlikon) is being built. In the former industrial area new living and working area is created. This urban architecture is lightened up by generous parks.
