Devil’s Cauldron Or Cradle Of The Arts?

SCANNED NEGATIVES : HALIFAX FROM THE SHIBDEN VALLEY (c1968)

This is one of my photos from 50 years ago and shows Halifax from  the Shibden Valley. The town seems to be spilling from the lip of some giant industrial cauldron, or nestling in a cradle of the arts.

This particular photograph comes from a time when my brother, Roger, and I were planning a slide presentation (a kind of 1960s equivalent of a vlog), which we had given the working title, “Halifax : Devil’s Cauldron or Cradle of the Arts?“. The presentation never got finished, but the title has stuck with me down the years.
