Six photographs from the early 1980s when we were living in Sheffield. The first four were taken in a snow-covered Crookes Valley Park. The fifth shows the top of Oxford Street and the house we were living in at the time. The final shot shows the group of shops on Crookes Valley Road, leading up to the junction with Crookesmoor Road.

The Demo

A short strip of four negatives that must date from the 1960s. More than likely it was 1968: that was the year of demonstrations, and that was the year I must have caught a coach to London, slogan at the ready and camera in hand. I can vaguely remember the crowds, the excitement, and the noise. If I dig a little further, I can probably remember the cause and even taking the photographs. Just memories now; memories and a short strip of 35mm negatives.
