Market Days

By chance, because my negatives are filed with the logic of a Trumpian tweet, another group of shots featuring Halifax Borough Market came to the top of the scanning pile. These are from the 1960s: the advent of decimalisation was a Godsend for picture daters. Pictures of the market always seem to be popular – perhaps it is the crowds that make us nostalgic for days when we could go out of doors without measuring social distances with our eyes. I like to think it is the market itself – a beautiful building fifty years ago and still a beautiful building now.
