A Grainy Memory
Another week, another strip of old negatives to scan and rediscover. And these six take me to another city and another decade, as we find ourselves in Sheffield in the 1980s. I was no longer a young man when I took these photographs, and to me, it seems like only yesterday; but a quick calculation on the back of an envelope tells me it is the best part of forty years ago. I have a feeling that I took this grainy grey shot in that part of the city between West Street and Broad Lane, but my attempts to locate the modern-day equivalent on Google Street View came to nothing as that part of the city has changed so much in the last few decades. Wherever it was, it was a grainy memory.
