ETHEL WITH THE LONG FACE The 1930s saw a high point in studio portrait photography : sandwiched between the stiff poses of the Victorian era and the self-obsessed postures of the Selfie age. I have no idea who Ethel was, but she sent love down the decades along with her photo.
WOOLSHOPS CART, HALIFAX (c1967) This photograph dates from the late 1960s, before the Woolshops area was redeveloped. That’s the New Talbot Inn behind the cart and the abattoir on the left. Now it’s all M&S and TopShop.
