Family history – dripping with memories. Aunty Annie in that hat, Uncle Harry in that suit, my wife to be in that dress: all set against the background of an asbestos garage. My father (left) is wearing a suit so it must have been a special occasion. The date will be about 1970 which doesn’t coincide with any important birthdays or anniversaries. No matter – a moment in time captured forever.
Two photographs from either the 1970s or 80s. By then I had left Halifax, but I would still walk around town with my camera when I returned to visit friends and family. These two photographs were taken in the Shaw Lane area of the town.
The stark monochrome shapes of mills and hills in Halifax. The mills are down Shaw Lane, the hill is Beacon Hill.
Looking down Boys Lane, Halifax, towards the Shears Inn. Little has changed over the years, you could probably see the same scene today: but, alas, in these Coronadays, the Shears will be temporarily closed.
